We are thankful to God for each and every one of our family and friends.

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;His lovingkindess is everlasting!

We had everyone over to the house last night for dinner and gingerbread house decorating. It was a blast. There’s nothing like hearing the whine of a Dremel tool at the same time someone is saying, “Pass the red icing!”

Colin has proposed to Nikki Piver, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Nikki was participating in a horse show this past weekend, and at the end of the day when they were putting the horse up, Colin proposed in the horse stall!

Nikki went on to win the horse show, so it was a 5-star weekend all around. Congratulations to Colin and Nikki on their engagement!
