Welcome Christmas!

The season is upon us and I am grateful for a wonderful time with family at Thanksgiving and for all the blessings that come with family time. For many of us family time can be so challenging during the season due to strained relationships. I know the pain so well. I won't go into details here but God is faithful no matter what.

Josiah is so stinkin' cute! I am pretty happy getting ready for Christmas shows at the Tacoma dome and at Seattle Convention Center as well. There will be lots of benches, birds, owls and French decor. Here's a preview.... For more information about the show go here: These shows should be great. Hope to see you all there....

It's June 10th 5:56 am and I get a text from Jordan McLean...."Natalie is in labor. Come on up when you can. I will come out when she's done." So I arrived at the birthing center in Kirkland at 7:30 am. I had to get on my computer and make sure everything was taken care of at work. Natalie was two weeks early which was no shock to me. Poor thing was looking like she was 90% baby! I called my mom first thing in the morning. She wept. I called her on the way up to the hospital again. I was a nervous wreck. This was it...the moment we had waited for. Another miracle coming. A child... a wonderful miraculous creation. My offspring! There was a family there that also had a baby come two weeks early. Susan, (one of the grandmother's) showed me the ropes around the center as this was her 5th grand-baby.
