A few pics

Need to be better at this, but since I'm not, here's a few kid pics. We've had a fun summer, so some youth and us pictures later!!

Becks decided Sadie needed to take off her clothes. And that he needed to be the one to do it. Then he didn't want to wear his either. And he told me his big boy undies were hats...here we go!

"Found my feet"

Beckham's checking it out in this one...
And then of course...

This is our Chubbers, but we call her Sadie Piper

Brian and Becks came down in hats yesterday. I can only imagine the conversation that went with this: "Daddy wearing hat?" "Yes"
"Daddy wearing hat?" "I am"
"Daddy wearing hat?" "Sure am"
"Daddy wearing hat?" "I am wearing a hat"
"Daddy wearing hat?" "You are right"
"Daddy wearing hat?" (no answer...)
"Beckham wear a hat?" "Sure, you can wear a hat too"

Progressive Dinner

This past weekend we had our annual Progressive Dinner with the youth of Redeemer. Unfortunately it was the same week as Prom and Senior Banquet for many of our students. Regardless it was a great time! You can see more pictures and read about the night here.

While we were doing this our friend George was having a rough day that would only get worse as he sat with us in Kansas City while his wife gave birth to their first child in Dallas. Classic story, though he doesn't appreciate the "classic" part of it yet. Their is reason to praise to God though as their baby boy, Reese Owen Deines was born healthy apart from the abandonment issues he has as a result of his dad missing the first big event in his life. Nothing showing up to a Christmas pageant won't fix. After all, it is not like he skipped his son's big event to play in a pub league division "D" soccer game.

Beckham's Bunny "Nummies"

Beckham saw a rabbit in our yard the other day and everyday since has asked to "see bunny." We decided to put out "bunny food"(aka carrots) to try to attract them. No luck yet, but he keeps ask, "check bunny?" before looking out the window.

Bum Bum Dances

Beckham asked Laura to play the toy piano today so that he could dance. I ran to get the camera. Below is the dance and a remix I made.

Another video for the Grandparents

All are free to watch, but this is something that will be more interesting to grandparents.

He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!


Easter is my favorite holiday, and I think one of the most underrated too. Christmas is great, but why doesn't the RISING of our Savior get more attention? Here's a few pics from Easter and around it. Sadie still looks like a baby I think...and Becks tells me he's "haaan-some" when I put him in a button down shirt...like on Easter!

Beckham Sledding


For the second straight year we took Beckham sledding in the front yard on a cookie sheet. This year he enjoyed it a great deal more than last year. I also drilled him in the head with a snowball, definitely plan to do that more.

Sadie Piper Hough

Sadie Piper Hough was born at 5:51 a.m. on January 24th 2008. She weighed 7 lbs 9 oz (6 oz more than Beckham) and is 18 inches long. Chubby, I'll deny I ever said that when she is a teenager. We'll put more pictures up later as the poor girl's head takes shape.

Brian's Ordination


On Sunday evening January 6, 2008 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church, by the grace of God Brian was ordained as a Teaching Elder in the PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) denomination. He was also installed as Assistant Pastor in the church. Pastor Tony Felich (Senior Pastor of Redeemer) did a great write up afterwards explaining what an Elder is, you can read it here. This was such an exciting event and it was a great pleasure to have Brian's Dad Hank and Jayne as well as the Jones (Sally, Roger and Sarah) come out to celebrate this event with us. I am thankful to all those at Redeemer for coming out for the night. Big thank you to Jay Bennett and his family for driving up so Jay could preach the sermon. I'm trying to get an audio or video version to put up here. Anyway enjoy the photos!
