It's a song we sing with our kids and it goes a little something like this...

"I love you (insert your name here),
Oh yes I do,
I love you (insert your name here),
this much is true,
when you're not with me, I'm blue
Oh, (insert your name here) I love you
Oh, (insert your name here) I love you!

{living water}

our church is full of insanely talented and creative people.  people with big hearts for loving others.

as part of our advent conspiracy celebration, REUNION has collaborated with Old Try in making Christmas cards.  these aren't just any old cards, these are cards with a mission.  $3 from the sale of each card goes to drill fresh water wells for those living in developing countries.  those suffering from thirst, drought, and disease.

stats tell us that americans spend 450 billion dollars on Christmas every year.  and the thing is, it is estimated that 20 billion would solve the worls's water crisis. clean water could change the world.  Christmas [can] still change the world.

pretty cool, huh?!  if you are local here in boston, you can grab some at any REUNION gathering.  out-of-towners can purchase online through old try here

join us in helping to make Christmas Good News for all!

{family pics...some outtakes}

our dear friend kate took pictures of the kids easy task. 

here are some outtakes.  not exactly frame worthy, but make me laugh out loud for sure!


kids wrestling, laughing, not cooperating, making silly faces...generally not interested in picture taking.  (although miles does seem to be posing like a champ in that last photo!)  this is our life.  and while i do wish we had a model perfect family photo, these tell the story of our family so perfectly.  this is real life...ours anyway.  these kids crack me up and bring me unbelievable joy and i am thankful for them (and their crazy antics!)
