About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Well worth the wait!

Well, although it has been a lifetime since I have updated our blog, it was well worth the wait. On April 15th, Leighanne Meredith joined the family. She was 6 lbs 7oz and 19 inches long. She is well loved and I have so many helpers I don't know what to do with them all!

Enjoy some pictures

We blessed Leighanne on June 12th here in Nebraska.

It was great to have Nana and Papa here to share in the special occasion
