"Puppy Love" at Antioch Adoption Auction

On Saturday, our family went to Seattle for Antioch Adoption's annual auction fundraiser event. It was a good opportunity for us to help out, however we could, in raising the funds necessary to continue their ministry of helping foster children find forever homes. The children at "Crossroads Country Ranch":) donated a puppy to be auctioned off! Below are the pictures of that part of the auction.
On the right, standing with her husband, is our Antioch Adoptions caseworker. She and her husband have a yellow lab puppy, and would like to add a second labrador sometime soon (preferably in a year from now). The bidding got off to a slow start, so they jumped in to help it get going! It got to a point where they almost won the bid!
But in the end, a very nice dad and mom, of three kids who are very anxious for a puppy, got the winning bid. You can barely see the mom holding up her number right under the puppy picture. It was very exciting!

A Few of Our Favorite Things . . This Week

Our First Snow

Mommy put this snowman lawn ornament out on our front lawn as a surprise for Kyle while he was away helping friends move. He had been keeping a very close watch on the weather forecast all week, and was really hoping for enough snow to play in:(

Fall Colors

Here are two reasons why I love fall so much!
These are two of the new trees we planted in our yard a year ago!
Aren't they beautiful?

Birthday by Candlelight . . .and Lantern

Last night we enjoyed a fun finale
to all the birthday celebrations we've had the past several weeks.
And we did so with a bang . . .
of sorts . . .
Around 6pm our first power outage of the season began!
It lasted for about five hours or so!
So, here in this photo, you can see Lydia
holding up a lantern to provide more light for the photo:)

Thirteen years ago today . . . .

It was election day!
Remember . . . . how we couldn't believe Clinton got re-elected?
Then . . . God chose to lighten our hearts,
brighten our day,
and change our lives and the world forever for the better . . .
so He caused something wonderful to happen!!!
And now, today, we are the proud parents of four more
awesome teenagers:)! Woo hoo!
