New Bedsets for the boys

So the boy's got new bed sets from us and Dave's mom and dad. I went and made their rooms up while they were busy Christmas Eve. Dave thought it would be fun for them to sleep in their new beds. Michael is a HUGE Payton Manning fan so we got him a Indianapolis Colts bed set.
Ryan is my lego lover so he got a Bionicle bed set. Marcus is a Albert Pujols fan. He play baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals. So he got the Cardinals bed set. Last but not least Aron. He like the Philadelphia Eagles. So that is what he got. Here are a few pictures of them on their new beds.

Christmas Eve

We have Christmas Eve at my house every year. This year there was my dad, my two sisters Samantha(13) Alyssa(11) their mom Paula. My other sister Shoni & her boyfriend Anthony and his two sons Bradley & Blaise. My Aunt & Uncle stopped by with my cousin Eddie and his new wife Shana. We haven't seen Eddie for 4 years so it was nice to visit with him again. We had dinner which was ham, mashed potatoes, green been casserole and rolls. After some for the company left we let the kids open a few of their gifts. They were all excited and has so much fun. I just love seeing their faces when they open their gifts.
Here are a few pictures of Christmas Eve night.

Standing corrected

I have to rephrase something I put in that last post. It his by far NOT MY salvation. It is thy or his salvation. If it were MY salvation then that would mean that I could do it on my own and there is no way that I can do salvation on my own.

"Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit." (Psalms 51:12, KJV)

"My” salvation means I do it myself. I earn my salvation. I have a right to my salvation. It is mine, and it’s all about me."

"“Thy” salvation is about God – his gift, his promise, his sacrifice, his love. It is his to bestow, because it’s not about you – or me – it’s about God and his grace."

The above phrase was copied from The Purpose Driven Life Daily Devotional on 12-28-07

Merry Christmas

As the season is almost over it is truly a reason to always celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Though Christmas may be over his birth is not. I will be forever grateful for the birth of his son and my salvation. Let us not never forget the real reason for the season.
Merry Christmas to you all.
Dave, Christine, Aron, Marcus, Ryan, Michael & Jackie
