Merry Christmas

We want to wish all of our friends and family a Merry Christmas! This is a special time of year filled with joy, memories, family time, and rest! We are very grateful for all that Christ has done for us this last year (and for the last 29 yrs). As I sat waiting for the Christmas Eve service to begin tonight I couldn't help but think how much our lives have changed since I sat in that same section 1 year ago. This year we both accepted new jobs. Fortunately I am the only one that relocated. Rando just changed positions at Hebron. God knew exactly what we needed and when we needed it.

We have learned so much about God's timing this year. All in a span of 2 wks Rando accepted the position as College Pastor, I started at Harbins, we paid off Rando's truck, and we learned we were having a baby (later to learn we were actually having 2 babies). For several years I thought it was the perfect time to start a family, but God had much greater plans! We have been blessed with 7 1/2 years together as a couple and are now ready for our baby boy and baby girl! Our God is perfect in every way and His plan is always perfect!

We have been to the doctor twice in the last 2 wks. The first was an appt. with a specialist. They measured the babies and we got to see them on the screen for about 40 min. Both babies were abt. 12 oz (Rando says I am carrying 2 coke cans) and growing at the right pace. Yesterday we went to my actual doctor's office. The doctor we saw yesterday is actually the one that delivered Adam and saved his and mom's life! He was extremely nice and made my day when he said I wouldn't have to go back to the specialist because everything was looking so good! Their heartbeats were great! We go back on Jan. 20th for another ultrasound and sugar test (can't wait... ha ha). It is crazy to think that we could be just 3 1/2 mths from the arrival of our precious babies!

Below are a few of our latest pictures. Since we spent most of Oct. and Nov. following the bulldogs the pictures are from Athens and on the road at Kent. and Auburn!

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
