During my pregnancy, I prayed over him everyday. I didn't pray for his success or future occupation. I prayed that he would love Jesus; have a personal relationship with HIM; serve HIM; be good and kind and bring joy to others. God was gracious in answering our prayers...we continue to pray daily for Ethan's salvation, as we understand that it will be his decision to make.
Today, Ethan is a sweet, compassionate, HILARIOUS, kind-hearted little boy who loves Jesus, loves to sing about HIM and loves hearing stories about David and Goliath, Jonah and Daniel.
Ethan is also passionate about learning new things and Lightning McQueen. I've so enjoyed seeing his personality develop!
On a lighter note, we are in preparations for the big celebration tomorrow! It of course is "Lightning McQueen" themed ;) per Ethan's request. I can't wait to celebrate our little Mr.

Every year my amazing hubby designs his own card...and every year is better than the last! He has amazing graphic art skills, creativity, and a good eye for design.
Shown above is this year's design(although it's showing blue...not sure why...it's actually red)...it's so good in fact, that I'm having him blow it up to place in our bedroom.
design: Brent Jackson; title: tied in knots
medium: digital camera and cherry stems.

Last night I wasn't quite at the top of my game. While leaving the grocery store, my arms full of groceries, he found...THE. PERFECT. PUDDLE. Before I could say, STOP...it was too late.
The cold muddy water from that puddle covered his chucks, all the way up mid-thigh of his jeans. His reaction? Utter joy and laughter. Although I was not very happy, and we had a talk on the way home...I have to admit that now it is pretty funny. And, his laughter and ear-to-ear grin is still staying with me. I so love that laugh.
