I can see the fingerprints of god.
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of god
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god
So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?
Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week!
This is an ICE sculpted display of the Nativity. Top picture is Mary, Joseph, and the babe-Jesus! and the second picture is the whole caboodle - We visited the ICE display yesterday at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando. A nice change to dress up with scarves, mittens, and hats. The exhibit gives you a Parka (what's that? - us, South FLORIDA folks don't own those). It was a chilly 9 degrees in the exhibit! It was just breathtaking of the artistry the designers come up with each year. AMAZING!

Health Update: Griffin is doing much better these days. A week back he spent a few days in the pediatric unit at Bethesda for some respiratory issues, but he is bouncing back now. At his 6th month check-up this week he is on the full-term baby charts now for 6 month olds at 25% for weight, and 50% for height. He is growing like a weed. He has never missed a bottle or a meal and now enjoys lot's of pureed foods, and is drinking water from a sip cup. He is full of smiles and brings so much JOY to our lives!

Well, long story short boy #1 had an accident with our big camera - a BIG accident! He had good intentions, but.... We borrowed a few dinosaur digitals from family and our stash in the closet, but nothing is like your great big fancy camera with all the fun features when you are an aspiring shutter bug as myself.
So.... after many months now "winging" it with the dinosaurs, and maybe a little bit of complaining...my honey bought be a brand spanking new and improved manual/digital Canon. Just like my old one, but the newer version. WOW- my heart is like pitter patter like the day last week when I said when do you think we can get a new one-the baby is like almost 6 mos. old-and we never took any photos on our terrific vacations this summer-life is passing us by...do you get my drift....maybe that's why he said last week- okay great, go on to Best Buy and buy what you want!! YEAH! Thanks Honey!!!
So stay with me, I haven't quit. I am unloading everything this weekend from the dinosaurs and the disks I had to make-and before you know I will be back. I know you won't be disappointed.
Speaking of not being diappointed...

Buddies at heart! Carter just adores Christopher, and I think Chris enjoys him too, at least this trip he did! :)
