Happy Birthday, Grandpa!

My Grandpa Huffman turned 84 years old yesterday! He is a very special person to me and I am so thankful for him! He served in World War II and married my grandma shortly after (They will be married for 60 years in June).

They had 3 kids, of which my mom is the youngest.

He worked at NWA in Minneapolis until retirement. They then moved to Oceanside, CA for 10+ years. We LOVED to visit them there. They moved to Colorado in 2001 (I think) to be closer to my mom & their son. I love having them so close and it has helped us to build an even more special relationship.

He is such an example of a studier of God's Word and prayer. He knows his Bible so well and shares it with us. He always tells us that he is praying for us, and he is.

Thanks to him and his early teasing, all of us grandkids love coffee!! He laughs about it to this day.

He always use to give us licorice sliders. All of us kids will remember those!

Remember the "no kissing on Tuesdays"? Well, I can think of several times where we got him. Remember that one time at Starbuck's?

My Grandpa is a wonderful man and I am very thankful for him.

Happy Birthday, Grandpa! I love you very much!!

Christmas Pictures

Here are some Christmas Pictures. I know it is late, but that is okay. We got back to WI on January 3 and we haven't stopped since!! Heston started student teaching 2 weeks ago and we had a grad class last week where we had about 50 pastors here on campus. It was a great week! I will share pictures of our banquet later.

Bri, I am sure that you will enjoy alot of these pictures! I am not sure if Mom was able to email any of them to you.

We all had a nice Christmas breakfast with Grandma & Grandpa Huffman and Aunt Brenda. After that Dad read the Christmas story and then we opened presents. After Christmas dinner, the cousins came over. It was a great Christmas! And yes Bri, we all slept under the tree; we missed you!!

Happy Birthday, Heston!

Today is Heston's 27th Birthday! I made him cupcakes to take with him to his 6th grade class at Faith, where he is student teaching. I am also making him a shoofly pie for his birthday cake. He LOVES those! Then it will probably be out to Chinese for dinner.

I am thankful for such a wonderful husband. This is the 5th birthday that we have spent together. Heston, I love you now more than ever and I am so very thankful for you! I love you very much and I know you will love your present!
