If you want to hear a great sermon that explains why our family has chosen to not celebrate December 25, this is it. We hope it helps our family and friends understand our deep love for our savior Jesus Christ and our desire to obey his commandments.

As I started to think about decorating our sons bedroom, I gave thought to what might be some ideas for a theme. We did not want to go with sports or super heros as most young boys do these days. We decided to surround our sons with photos of men they could look up to. As my search for men of honor continued, I started to think about the 5th commandment. Honor thy father and thy mother. Then it hit me. That was it, our forefathers! Here are the photos that we have chosen to hang in our sons bedroom. Our forefathers...

Wow! What a trip to PA. I'm telling you.... "The Lord rained blessings upon the Reederbunch." Not only were we able to spend an extended amount of time with family in PA, but we were blessed beyond what we could image. I can't even begin to tell you all the gifts that were given to our family. The biggest was a very nice Suburban and Trailer, which left both Chris and I speechless. I know... none of you can image me speechless right? Well, believe it. haha...
Chris' Grandfather and Grandmother sold their home after all these years and moved to a retirement community. As they downsized their estate, they rained blessings upon family members. We were blessed with not only a Suburban and Trailer, but it was loaded with lots and lots of blessings from their farm, which we will be able to use here as we establish our own. Thank You Vic and Betty for blessing our family!
Along with these amazing blessings, Chris was also given his uncle's Pickup truck. It will be a farm truck, not able to drive too far from home, but perfect for an old farm truck.
Also, as my mother finishes cleaning out my Grandparents estate from their passing, we were rained even more blessing!
Our family has never seen such blessing Praise the Lord and Thank You all!!!

Okay, so I know there are some of you who would really like to see some photos of our home right? I know, I have kept it a secret for way too long! Well... here you go....
New Windows and soon to be new Drywall.
Yes, that was the room I delivered Philip! Before it was done!
The girls didn't want their bunk beds anymore, they asked if they could share beds...
like "Little House on the Prairie".
This is one of my favorite prints, under it is the passage, "James 5:11".
The girls night stand.
The basket holds their pocketbooks, they have a night light, and a cute clock.
Here is Mary's bed, which she now know how to climb out of.

Our little man is growing! It's amazing how quickly time goes by. Philip is now 7 weeks old and he is delighting us more and more every day! There is always a pair of hands willing to hold and play with this happy little guy. Here is a photo taken of him this morning.

A little over a month ago, I took some photos of our children with their animals. My Mother-in-Law, ask for a photo of Philip with an animal, so it was time for Philip to have another photo shoot! Here are the two photos we were able to get. Philip and Mr. Hoppy.
