pics from (grand) parent's visit and update

The following are some pics from Mom and Dad's recent visit. The first couple of pictures are from our hike out at the bluffs. Being spoiled by grandparents is hard work. A bit north of here are some wind mills for energy and we went and saw them. We even crossed into Iowa, which isn't too far from here. Dad was born in Iowa but he left when he was 3 months old, and he hadn't been back since then. It had been a while but Iowa was glad to see its native son. Here's a rare picture of all of us. As for an update and prayer requests. We have been doing pretty well but also quite busy. The church is going ok. It feels like people are getting to know one another better and community is forming. Some people are also beginning to get involved, so that is very good. I would just like to see some more consistency as we can have many show up one week and not so many the next. Just continue to pray for us and our church- that we would go foward knowing God and sharing his love.
smart kid...

The Scooter

Well, here's a couple of videos of Evan crawling or 'scooting' as we call it. He's really started doing this in the last week or so. Sorry I haven't posted much here recently. I know I have a lot to catch up on. I hope to put some more pics, videos and prayer requests on later.

happy march!

Following are some recent pics and videos of Evan. Sorry it's been a while since I last posted any. Guess I'm making up for lost time. Things have been going well. Not too much to write about. Hope you all enjoy these pics and videos.
Evan likes mirrors as you can see here.
Here's my beautiful bride with our wonderful baby.
Here's Evan at 9 months and 2 days. We forgot to take his picture on his 9th month birthday, so here is this one.
You can see in this one that Evan is a fan of Sports Illustrated.

This one's kind of short but you can see him eating a cookie. Watch it kind of closely.
Here is Evan showing off one of his new tricks- waving!
Here's him just being Evan. Here's him lunging forward. He's not crawling yet but sure is trying and is moving around, rolling and spinning.
This and the next one show him doing another new trick- shaking his head.

Here's Evan with a bowl of snow. We got a lot of snow yesterday and here is his reaction to some of it.
