Ethan had his first, long over due, hair cut recently!
Before "the cut"

When Geoff saw him after his hair cut he said "where's my son?" He looks so different and so grown up!
Thanks Katie, you did an awesome job!

We've had family visiting from Florida. And my brother came down from Chicago so we've been a little busy but having lots of fun. Here's some snapshots of what we've been up to.
Lots of books read.
A maturnity shoot for Baby Topel.

Juicing with Grandma

Playing and walks outside.
An early Christmas.
A visit to Santa. (poor Ethan)

Reading with Grandpa.

And lots of snuggles!

We had the privilege of seeing 45 students of the training center graduate on Wednesday night.
Such a blessing to see these folks going forth to take God's word to places it's never been.

The winner of the card giveaway is Joy! Congratulations Joy!

Merry Christmas!

Are you sure that's the same boy with the hair cut?!?! Makes Ethan look SO much older! Still such a cutie though :-)
