To the Best Daddy in the WORLD!


I love you b/c you like to toss me high in the air
you like to use paper boxes as roller coasters; you like to make me laugh with your monkey impressionsyou take me to see the mountains

and even carry me on your back

you work really hard all day so I can eat yummy food; sometimes you even feed me cake when mom's not looking; you pray at dinner time and sing to me about Jesus even though I don't always understand; you comfort me when I fall down; and you tell me you love me all the time!
I love you too dad. Happy Father's day.

and the winner is...

Facebook Happy Birthdays!!! Gotta love them. I get more wall posts on this one day, than for the next 364 combined.

So, Krisha said I had to vote on the winner of the b-day acrostic poems. So here it goes.

Aggressively competitive (even at card games)

Best poem w/ use of the English language: Fontana


Best poem if my name was BAIAN: Tyler


Best poem by a four-legged friend: Zoe

Boyfriend (he just doesn't know it)
Rarely remembers to feed me
Ignores me now that Chase is here
Amused by my crazy-girl run
Nice legs for humping (who says girl dogs don't hump?)

Best spiritual: Dad

Blessing from God to his family
Reverent before God in his thinking
Influenced by God in his actions
Available to God to do His will
Numbered among the saints of God

Funniest: France and Jake (tie)

France's poem
Bull-like (Have you seen him charge at you!)
Really slow guitar player (Lord...I...Lift...Your...Name...On...High)
Insanity ensues when playing Risk
Always pondering Calvinism and it's many applications
Naked whenever possible

Jake's poem
Bodacious babe bringing bounteous beauty by bearing baby by back because buns be big

Indian chicks rule
Always diving for a fast moving object
Never cross his path or he will slay you

Red Robin

Forgot to post our adventure of taking out kids out to eat at Red Robin. The Red Robin was kind enough to pose in our photo. It takes guts to wear bright yellow tights....
not to mention skinny legs.

In need of a facelift

So, as you might have noticed, our blog has had a bit of a facelift. I (Krisha) convinced Brian that since he rarely posts now, I needed a change: the whole black background didn't quite inspire me to write. As I was browsing through backgrounds, I realized I had to determine what image would best capture our family. I placed one of my favorite pictures of Brian and me at the top. Hopefully it won't be too girly for hubby. But if it disappears tomorrow, than you'll know I got vetoed. :) Let me know what you think.

I liked the idea of the tree and the bird because there are a lot of Biblical analogies to trees being firmly planted and abiding in the true vine. The picture atop reminds me that He is the vine and we are the branches. I also changed the verse at the bottom to reflect more of what kurios caching is about: kurios- Greek for "Lord" and caching- finding hidden treasures. If you think about geocaching (which is where Brian got the idea), you are searching for, hunting down, "CHASING" after treasures that you find hidden in nature.

Here's a pix of Brian and Chase on our hike at Roaring Run.

This blog is a reflection of our hearts and a reminder to us (and hopefully others reading) that the Lord is our treasure. "Above all else, guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life." (Proverbs 4:23) Alas, I ended our blog with a GIANT (yeah couldn't figure out how to make it smaller) picture of Zoe, our beloved English bully. Zoe comes from the Greek word for "life".
