Sad News!

On December 31st, My dad went to a meeting with 2 of the elders of the Church in Anderson, IN.  He needed to gas the car up so he pulled into Pilot. He gassed up and then when He was just about to get on the highway, the car died. He tried and tried and tried but the car would not start up. Suddenly, he saw a flame in the hood. He went into the gas station to ask if He could use a fire extinguisher. Then He heard someone say "Someone's car is on fire!" It was the van! My dad then called Mr. Daming. Mr. Daming came and saw my dad in the gas station looking across the street to where our car was engulfed with flames. My Dad and Mr. Daming called 911. When they got there it was too late, the car was burnt to a crisp. Our family van is now gone.  Please pray for us as we search for a new car!

Yee haw!

Every Year, the day after Christmas, Our family makes the trip up to Indiana.   So our family made the trip to Indiana this year on Saturday.  When we got there, we unpacked everything.  Then, we loaded wood into Mr. Damings trailer and brought it into the garage.  Then,  my 2 friends, Anthony and Nathaniel showed me a place where mice nearby like to hide.  We got down there and Anthony flipped open the boat.  We saw 3 mice!  One jumped out of the boat (which was their hiding place).  Nathaniel and I chased it to the end of the boat where Anthony was and he squashed both of their brains out with a HUGE stick!  We were all so happy that Anthony killed the 2 mice.  We call ourselves, The Rat Patrol because last year we shot 4 mice. And the year before last we shot a Rat. It was half a foot long!  I will post something when we catch more!

Card Player

Claire loves to play cards. My Grandma came down for Christmas and Claire was begging her to play cards with her. My Grandma and Claire played "War". Here are some pictures of her playing with my Grandma!


I will share with you some things that I like about Christmas:

1. I like sitting around the table with a hot cup of cider and sing Christmas carols.
2. I like hearing Dad read some passages recounting Jesus' birth.
3. I thank God that He sent His own son born in a manger to die for our sins!

Stephen's Battle

I did this video with my friends, Joshua Horn, Stephen Horn, and Jake Dohm. It was really fun!

I would like to share some thoughts with you on Christmas:

1. Christmas should not be a time to remember Santa Claus, but to remember Christ's birth
2. Christmas is a great time for giving to others because God gave us His son, Jesus Christ

If anyone has any other insights I would like to know what they are!
