Happy Birthday Josiah!

Josiah is 8! from patty hull on Vimeo.

Dear 'Siah,
What a fun day we've had, celebrating your 8th birthday!  We can't hardly believe it was 8 years ago we first held you in our arms, overjoyed at your healthy arrival.  Ever since that day you have continued to be such a JOY to us!  Your smile and laughter is uniquely yours… and so very contagious!

We are so very proud of you.  Each day you grow we pray your heart remains open to the Lord's love and His leading in your life.  

Happy Birthday son!

Glorious Unfolding

Steven Curtis Chapman's newest album, "Glorious Unfolding," has captured me.   The truths of Hope and redemption we have through Jesus shared here have helped to bring peace and joy on some difficult days for me this year.

Deep encouragement for an eternal perspective in this life.  I Highly recommend it!

No Shave November and the Monkey Tail

(Abby is briefly in this video)

November… a beautiful season of color, cool weather, thoughts of Thanksgiving and… No shaving!

Patrick has faithfully "celebrated" No Shave November for years, much to my dismay.  This year he spearheaded a fundraising and team building event at work to raise money for a worthy cause!  Ambucs serves people with disabilities by providing adaptive bikes, individually fitted for each person's needs.  Abby has one!

A large group of NASA employees agreed to grow beards this month in order to shave a crazy design at the end… and wear it all week!  

Designs were chosen for people to vote for by placing money in the jar of their desired (least embarrassing) look.  The money collected will go towards a very special bike for a very special child!

The choices were Federation Standard (clean shaven), Fu Man Chu, The Bat Man, Chin Curtain, Monkey Tail and the Franz Joseph.

The guys raised enough for 6 BIKES (>$2100)!!  And the Monkey Tail won.  

So, for the next week, the guys will sport this look.

The Monkey Tail!
The kids are big fans!
