I know I am behind on my blogs.  I am going to try and catch up.  Fred and I went to Rockport for Spring Break.  We had a GREAT time with our friends Lyn and Ronnie.  On the way there we stopped at a Catholic Church.  It was beautiful.  It is part of the Painted Churches tour in that area. On Sunday we went to Corpus Christi and tour  the USS Lexington.   I was very interesting.  It was very windy and chilly that day.  Fred's dad serve in the Navy and was on a ship similar to the Lexington.    Here are some pictures:

Fred and I took Addison and Hayden to the Charlie Brown ICE show over the holidays.  It was amazing and very COLD!  We had never been to the Gaylord and it is a facsinating place.  Loved it!

This is what Fred looked like when we came out of the ICE exhibit.  His glasses froze over.  It was so funny.
We had a great time!

12 Days of Christmas

You might or might not have heard this version of the 12 Days of Christmas. It isn't a song. It's a story. A true story. Just a reminder why we celebrate Christmas.  It is not the gifts, Santa, decorations, money it is our Saviour Jesus Christ and everything he has done for us.


On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25, the first day of Christmas. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge that feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, recalling the expression of Christ's sadness over the fate of Jerusalem: "Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so . . . ." (Luke 13:34)

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

Two Turtle Doves

The Old and New Testaments, which together bear witness to God's self-revelation in history and the creation of a people to tell the Story of God to the world.

On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

Three French Hens

The Three Theological Virtues: 1) Faith, 2) Hope, and 3) Love (1 Corinthians 13:13)

The Four Gospels: 1) Matthew, 2) Mark, 3) Luke, and 4) John, which proclaim the Good News of God's reconciliation of the world to Himself in Jesus Christ.

Five Gold Rings

The first Five Books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah or the Pentateuch: 1) Genesis, 2) Exodus, 3) Leviticus, 4) Numbers, and 5) Deuteronomy, which gives the history of humanity's sinful failure and God's response of grace in the creation of a people to be a light to the world.

On the 6th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

Six Geese A-laying

The six days of creation that confesses God as Creator and Sustainer of the world (Genesis 1).

Fred and I went to Canton yesterday. I had never been and I have to say I was very overwelmed. That place is huge! We bought a few things but nothing really great. But we still have a great time with Greg, Babette and Tiffany.
