Happy New Year, everyone! We've had two full weeks of family, friendship, food, and fun. :) I hope your holidays have been wonderful, as well. I haven't uploaded all of our Christmas pictures, so I don't really have a recap, but it was good. :)
Well, the holidays are over...and I sooooo wish they weren't! :) Many, many, many things were sitting on the back burner until the turn of the new year. And now? I'm so terrified that I'm nearly paralyzed.
I'm fairly empty of personal revelations, witty thoughts, or amusing stories. Therefore, I'm going to direct you to a different source of information. If you follow this link, it will take you to Cornerstone Church's Media Player. This is where you can download or listen to the mp3's of their weekly teachings.

"Today I could learn that something is terribly wrong with him."
The radiology techs asked me if he'd had a chest x-ray before.
"Sure. I think he's had four or five." I told them that he does best in the little bicycle seat thingy with his arms up around his head, enclosed in a plastic case.
I have not written here awhile. I've done some work on the site, but it's all just been "back end" stuff to help it run smoother. As I was working on the site tonight I came across the post that I wrote about Ruby's birth story. While I enjoy that story immensely, it also made me realize that I haven't really written much about Burke. So here it goes...
