Where the heck have ya been???


Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful day, wonderful families, wonderful gifts, etc.... I hope everything went well. My christmas was good, it was sad, happy, joyful, somber, and well different. Kasey had to work and Jake and I slept in until 8:30 which is a leap from our usual 6:00Am Christmas morning. The morning went well we had a big breakfast and jake and I opened two gifts. Then we had a twist in the day. Our grandpa has been sick for a while, cancer, he is 84 years old and going faster every day. it's been a long hard process of watching his cancer take over. Sad, painful, difficult, and tiresome. Yesterday, he finally passed away. Some might think that it would be the most terrible thing to experience a death on christmas but for our family it was a blessing to see him finally go. He was in pain and suffering daily. Our hearts are full of pain to not have him now but at the same time we know that he is with Jesus. And i don't say that flippantly, He is. He laid down his pride and picked up the free gift of eternal life with Christ Jesus and God the Father just a few months ago. Somepeople might think that because he lived most of his life in sin and put his pride above God almost every day that he lived that God couldn't possibly have room in his heart for him. More than that, God has SO MUCH room in his heart for him When we come back to our creator and allow the grace of God to flood our hearts and let him wrap his daddy arms around our brokenness He WILL. God is more than our judge, He is our just father and longs for our hearts daily. Merry CHRISTmas, From God!


God bless, Sleep Well.

Here we SNOW again!


Oh the weather outside is frightful.....


.... And the fire?? well i guess it would be delightful.



First day of December and it's snowing like crazy. This weather has put the whole state into an upset and it seems that people forget every year how to drive in this white mess.... Myself included. I do anticipate the snow sometimes, it's beautiful. Ahh... sleding, ice skating and warm cups of coffee on a chilly day. Hope your day is wonderful and full of winter fun. Even if we have to scrape off our cars more than once a day. :D


God Bless, Sleep well.
