In the News

Our twins have made it into the newspaper over the past month. (In a GOOD way, not the court reports or anything!!) First, Shae was pictured asking Santa for her two front teeth. Santa's a little slow to comply with that request as of mid-January, but I'm sure his elves are working on it. Good thing the Chief Elf let Hermey set up a dental practice at the North Pole!

Then last week Paige participted in the elementary school spelling bee. It was for grades one through four, and Roosie was very nervous about being in it. I told her that I was proud of her for qualifying and "just have fun". Slacker Mom wasn't able to attend the bee, as I had a temporary loss of car keys. Thanks to my friend Astrid for taking photos like this one for me to share. Several people told me that Paige did a good job of speaking confidently and making it through a few rounds. She went out on the word "eye" which, in my biased opinion, is a pretty tough word to spell phonetically, anyway. You go girl!

In totally unrelated news, my prayers go out to the people of Haiti. What a devastating blow to an already devastated country. The faith of the survivors, singing and praying as they await help, is a sure testament to God's hold on them...and so now it is up to the rest of us to show His love in return.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.--2Corinthians 1: 3-4
