Parker's Baptism

Our little man Parker was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints on January 3, 2009. It was a special day which we shared with friends and family. We witnessed the power of the priesthood as Kevin baptized his son and blessed him with the gift of the Holy Ghost. Parker was so excited for this day to come! He even used his $20 Christmas money from Grandma and Grandpa Wiscombe to help buy his first suit. We are so proud of him and we love him very much!

New Year 2009

We said "goodbye!" to 2008 and "hello!" to 2009 by hosting a New Year's Eve party at our house. The combination of food, friends, and hilarious conversation made the hours fly by and before we knew it...the midnight countdown was upon us! Even after ringing in the New Year, we managed to stay awake for an extra hour-and-a-half. Who said old people can't stay up late? hee-hee!! We're looking forward to this new year with hope and optimism and continuing to be thankful for all of the blessings in our lives.
