4 on the 4th

That's known as your golden birthday - when your birthdate and your age coincide. Today is our Zion's Golden Birthday.  It only comes once in your lifetime.  Then it's gone.  So quickly it comes and goes, before you know it!  Maybe some of you didn't know it and your Golden Birthday has already come and gone and you missed it!  If I look at it in the grander perspective of time, childhood is like that!  It comes and goes and before you know it, they are grown and gone! Zion startled me the other day by asking, "Mommy, can I live forever?"  I wondered what train of thought had lead him to this question and asked why he wanted to live forever.  "So I can play with all my toys forever," he replied.  But before he knows it, he'll be through the toy stage of life and ready for the "real" toys - cars, motorcyles, phones, or such.  As my sister Brittney pointed out recently, supposing he is grown up and ready to leave home by the age of 20…

New year - new blog!

"So whadya do for New Years?" - people keep asking us.  Ummm....well, nothing exciting, except calling up the Saints and friends in Ghana!  That WAS exciting, though, come to think of it!  We have Brothers and Sisters all the way across the big pond (Atlantic Ocean)!  Isn't that exciting?!  We could use this nifty little thing called a cell phone and hear their voices and enjoy their surprise and delight as they heard us, especially when Zion and Havilah shouted out to them "Happy New Year!"  That WAS exciting!  We even SAW some of our dear brethren and talked face-to-face (okay... screen-to-screen!) on Skype.  Now, THAT was exciting too!  Sure, the connection wasn't perfect and more than half of the phone numbers we tried didn't go through, but after living in Ghana and knowing the plethora of technical difficulties that come with getting anything done over there, we were thrilled and ecstatic for the connections we COULD make.  It WAS exciting!
