Chistmas Tree Hunt 2009

Since Will and I have been married, it's been our tradition to go hunt the perfect Christmas tree and cut it down ourselves. The past three years we've driven to the Wintergreen Tree Farm in Van Alstyne and had great luck finding just the right tree! This year we went hunting in jeans and T-shirts as it was 72 degrees - a little odd for these northerners. We made up for the lack of Christmas-like weather by listening to tons and tons of Christmas tunes - from White Christmas to Away in a Manger.

Ice, Ice Baby

This weekend, while Will's parents were in town, we went to the Gaylord Texan to see their Ice exhibit. This year's theme happened to be The Grinch Who Stole Christmas - and it happened to be AMAZING! We were a little unsure how Breckin would do in the nine degrees inside this exhibit, since he is a native Texan. Apparently his parents' northern blood courses through his veins too, because he was too busy being awed by the colors and lights to care about the temperatures. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Lasher for starting this Christmas season off with such a fun treat!

The Wiggly Play Center

Since yesterday's plans to go to the State Fair got rained out, we decided to treat Breckin to an afternoon at the Wiggly Play Center, an indoor Wiggles-themed playground. Mommy and Daddy's ears were bleeding by the time we were done, but Breckin had a great time.

Praying for Boston

This blog is to request that all of our friends and family join in a prayer chain for Boston Clark. Boston's parent's, Kelly and Charlie, are friends of ours who live in Angola, Indiana who were mentors and friends of mine (Will) while I was in college.

Boston was born last Saturday at 30 weeks, weighing 2lbs 3 ounces. This is an excerpt from Kelly's blog. "I had my 30 week appointment yesterday and ended up in the hospital. My OBGYN and also a prenatal - neonatal specialist did not like the look of the untra sound, mainly the blood flow through the umblical cord and he is measuring 3 weeks small which of course is cause for concern. Had a steroid shot to help develop the babys lungs as well. We were both hooked up to monitors and hanging in there." They ended up delivering Boston via c-section due to the lack of blood he was receiving.

Boston will be in the NICU for quite a while. Please pray for Boston that God will continue to strengthen him and allow to go to home as soon as possible. Also pray for Charlie and Kelly that they will have the strength to endure this tough time.
