How Deep the Father's Love for us

This is a song we love to sing at church.  Hope you enjoy!

 How deep the Father's love for us
how vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
to make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss!
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross,
my sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there,
until it was accomplished.
His dying breath has brought me life,
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast of anything;
no gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart;
His wounds have paid my ransom.

So I won these the other day and received them in the mail today!  I'm excited to read them....I know I will be encouraged and convicted!!  The first book is Proverbs for Parenting and the second is Parenting is HEART Work.

In other news, this has been quite the trying week.  We got home from vacation and a couple of the kids have come down with a croupy cough.  Then we got stranded on the side of the road when our van alternator died.  Then hubby was in bed for 2 days with we're-not-sure-what but thankfully he is back to his normal self again....and we also found out that our dear Pastor has resigned and is leaving the end of the month to be a senior pastor at another church!  We are happy for their family but are sure going to miss them!!!  I hope this next coming week will be better.  We will start it off with hubby's work Christmas party so the kids are looking forward to that!

Today the weather is calling for lots of snow so hubby has already left from work early to avoid the dangerous roads.

For baby updates, everything is on track and looking good.  She is still such an active girl!  We are counting down with 8 weeks left!

And last night, our big girl comes downstairs and says her tooth is really wiggly and wants me to pull it out.  I grab a kleenex and hold onto the tooth....give it a twist and out it pops only to realize I'm holding 2 MOLARS!  How in the world I pulled out both I do not know but poor girl cant chew on her left side anymore (both teeth were loose by the way).
That's about it.....

We had a nice time away for Thanksgiving.  It is always enjoyable spending the holidays with family.  We were able to see the grandparents and great-grandparents, cousins (Aunt/Uncle) and second cousins.  Here are a few pics....
