Long story short, at the church we used to go to by our old house the priest was a big man, with a long beard, and a BOOMING voice. He scared the daylights out of Henry. When it was time to say "peace be with you", he went around to everyone (it was small church) to shake his/her hand and inevitably when he got to Henry, Henry would cry. Henry thought he was Jesus. So, whenever we would go to that church he would yell "I don't like that Jesus". Not a good thing to have your child screaming at church.
We have changed churches, but the fear still sits in Henry. He also doesn't like it when the church is full of people (can you say mini-Mark?).
Anyways....lately we have been talking about how Christmas is Jesus's birthday and that is why it is really important to go to church on Christmas. (aka - it is not just about the presents)
This morning Henry says to me "Hey mom....what about this, what if we didn't go to church but we called Jesus and sang him Happy Birthday".
I nearly lost it. I love being a parent to young kids...

Check out the link for pictures of a car pile up in our neighborhood! This is on our local news website. We finally had a neigbhor pay a guy with a bobcat to come plow our street. We have been getting in out with 4 wheel drive and snow chains.

This guy was selling sausage on the street with his mobile grill which I thought was pretty cool.

Mark is in Montenegro (yes...in Europe!) for work so I had to go to the photo shop to buy the connector for the camera so I could send him pictures. HILARIOUS to see the videos he shot of Henry. The first one cracked me up because Henry spent all this time talking up his game and then he missed his shots. The second one I had to post to redeem H-man and his ability to shoot. Check out Francie just chillin in front of the mirror during "the game". Classic.

We had to post this picture as Francie's curly-Q on the top of her head is hysterical.
It is even cuter when her hair is really blonde (not like it is today...greasy because I seriously can't think of the last time she had a bath....yes she is the second child).
After downloading Francie's picture I also found this picture of Henry on the top of Mt Hood at the end of August. I had to post it as the view and his smile made my night.

We can't wait to make it our home! Remember, all are welcome! We now have room! Attached are some pictures from their realtor's website. I will post ours as soon as I can find our camera connector in the pile of boxes.
