The Photo Shoot!

Pictures from Timothy's photo shoot for his announcement card!
He's just 2 weeks old.

Timothy's First Holiday!

All dressed up for the occasion!

Thanksgiving, our first as a family of Three!

Gracie & Timothy

Gracie's been a great dog to Timmy! I think the picture of the two of them was taken when Timothy was just 4 days old. We were sitting in the yard playing frisbee and Gracie kept returning the frisbee, not to me, but to Timothy. She's very gentle and good with him! She just can't wait until he's old enough to play :o)

My First Bath!

Well, technically his first bath was at the hospital,
this was his first bath at home!
Thanks for the cute towel Aunt Kim!
If Mom would wrap me up better, I'd be snuggly warm! :o)

Pictures from the hospital . . .

Proud Daddy and Baby Timothy

Timothy at the hospital in his cool hat

All dressed to go home! Yea!!

Thank You!

Here's a cool story....Timothy was born on a Thursday night. Brian and I go to a group that meets at our church on Thursday nights. So, that night at their meeting they prayed for us. Minutes later (honestly!), after 18 hours of labor, Timothy was born. They prayed somewhere around 7:25/7:30 and Timothy was born at 7:38. What a great answer to prayer! Thanks to all our friends at IGNITE!

Happy Halloween!

We may not have had a little boy to dress up for Halloween this year, but we had a Gracie-bug! Doesn't she look so cooperative? Haha, she actually kept her costume on until we went to bed! She even played outside for awhile in it!

An Afternoon on the Boat...

One of our favorite things to do in the summertime is go out and enjoy the water on the boat. It's great when you can share that with friends!
On this day, Blair & Mark joined us.

Camping at Lake Durant

This one is dark, but Ithought the silhouette was kind of cool.
While fishing for Musky's, Brian caught several large mouth bass.

We're out on the boat and Brian says, "Look!" I looked all over the place, trying to figure out what he was talking about, then I saw it....A squirrel swimming! It was so crazy!

In July we went camping at Lake Durant in the Adirondacks. It rained the whole first night and when we woke up a ranger told us that there was a bear siting during the night. We looked around our site and were convinced that this is a bear print! It's hard to see so you probably think I'm just crazy, but it honestly looks like a bear clawed the ground.


We went and saw fireworks at Emerson park to celebrate the 4th.
This 4th of July marks our 3rd Anniversary! My how time flys!

Creation Festival '07

The Creation Festival is a music festival held in Mount Union, PA (or thereabouts). It's held from a Wednesday to Sunday and thousands of people come out and camp on this "farm" each year. During the day there are bands and speakers to hear and each night some of the biggest names in Christian music perform. If you haven't ever been to Creation, I highly recommend going. The speakers are great, the music is great and it's a time to really draw close to God.
Any takers for Creation '09?

Each year at Creation they have a candlelight ceremony.
Everyone gets a candle and the flame is carried across the crowd.
Can you imagine this in a crowd of 80,000 people?
It's an incredible moment and what a vivid example of a city on a hill!

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven."

Matthew 5:14-16

Candelight Ceremony

Kim & Brian

Sometimes it's hard to see the resemblence between siblings,
but in this picture, even though it's blury, it's unmistakable!
We had a rough start and couldn't seem to keep the rain away,
thus Mike's crazy set-up for cooking hot dogs!

Each day we set off on our LONG trek to the main stage,
Brian kept trying to make it easier to carry everything!
Our time at Creation, it was dark and this pic didn't focus well!

Afternoon Activities

We were out fishing
for Pike & Musky's
when Randy suddenly
caught a very hungy perch!
Look at the size of the lure he bit on!

Kim & Stephanie decided to take the kayak's out for a spin!
(One of) Brian's Pike!

the guys out fishing

Carly's Pike! It looked much bigger in person.
The camera adding 10 lbs musn't apply to fish!
(Notice how I caught it, but am not touching it!)

The Icebreaker

Brian's new boat, affectionately dubbed "The Icebreaker," for it's width and weight! It's a 16 foot fishing boat, he's already used it quite a bit! This picture is from the Island where we ran out of room to dock, so the guys came up with a brillant idea to dock the boat on the floating dock!

Baby Nodine

Here are our 20 week ultrasound pictures!
Baby's Profile, what a cutie!

Baby's Face - "Say Cheese!"

Baby BOY Nodine!

This picture was taken right after we discovered he is a boy! The technician said he put is hand up to his face because he was all embarrased! It was really funny!

What A Catch!

Brian and Nick went out fishing one night and returned with a bunch of perch! Not only did they catch a lot, they were quite large! A few nights later we enjoyed the catch with Nick, Sarah & the kids!
