Welcome to our family! My deepest desire is to point others to Christ, who continues to dramatically changed me into His image. May God's glory be revealed through the ups and downs of our family.

Siblings instead of cousins?

Todd's brother and sister-in-law have two girls, Zoriana and Katerina. Garrett and Katerina look like brother-sister, and Zoriana and Joshua look like brother-sister. Hair color, skin coloring, all are the same. Kinda craziness!

Graham Family Christmas

Today we celebrated Christmas as a family. We did a gift exchange, and a white elephant exchange. I received Trivial Pursuit! What a deal- I definitely gained from this exchange... Thanks family! We had a great time, and Garrett didn't want to leave. He loves playing with his cousins. Merry Christmas!


Is anyone else sick out there? Garrett is barely eating, and Joshua threw up last night in bed, and again this morning on our rug... Joshua is barely eating, which is fine since his stomach isn't happy... What is this bug? YUCK!


Cincinnati Children's Museum

Garrett, Joshua, and I went to the Cincinnati Museum Center today. It has become our favorite spot, one that we will miss big time. We would highly recommend going now, when they have their Holiday Display with trains. The museum was empty today, so we stayed extra long and played hard!


85% and chugging!

Well, we are at 85%, and four weeks till our finish date. One of our v. p.'s did share that they will allow us to go past our date (January 10, 2009) to keep support raising, but we are praying (feel free to join us) that God will finish us up by the 10th. I am starting to think of it like a pregnancy due date. I never past mine, but I can only imagine how incredibly hard it would be. I know we will finish, and part of me wants to finish now, and part of me doesn't. Finishing equates to moving from every family member and friend I know. Finishing means starting this amazing adventure that God has been preparing our hearts for, for 2+ years... Finishing means leaping and waiting for God to give us wings. The picture shows us at the Christian Business Networking Day at the Vineyard Community Church. What a blessing it has been!
