Day 366 of 365!  New Years Eve

Day 366 of 365- December 31st The last day of our Project 365 (day 366 due to the leap year) is here!  We made it!  What a year this has been.   It can be a little overwhelming to look back at our posts for this past year and see all of the changes and experiences God has walked us through.  We have had new beginnings in Baton Rouge, endured the challenges of getting settled, and experienced absolute heartbreaking loss in our family.  God has truly never left our side and given us such peace along the way.  We pray that you know His peace that passes all understanding.   We were...

Video Games & Bullseyes

Day 364 of 365- December 29th Saturday was a low-key day at Grandma & Grandpa Petersons.  Mario Kart on the Wii is always a popular game with the cousins and today was a Mario Kart day. Jonah took 1st place on the race. Next up… Jonah vs. Caleb Sumner preferred to play his new DS game from his cousin. Caleb can’t hold the dogs for long, due to his allergies, but that doesn’t stop him from getting a little time in with them.     Day 365 of 365- December 3oth As we were in the kitchen, helping to prepare for lunch, Sumner ran in asking Adam to grab a camera...

Pictures in St. Charles

Day 363 of 365- December 28th Our gift to Grandma Peterson this year was an old time photo of all of the grandkids.  Adam’s sister was able to set everything up at a fun studio in downtown St. Charles, MO.  The kids had a great time getting into the cowboy & southern belle character costumes.  The boys’ favorite piece in the attire were the guns and the girls loved the parasols.  The photos turned out great!  (Not sure if I am allowed to post any here though.) As we were walking up to the photo studio, Adam spotted a photo opportunity.   Many thanks to our photographer,...

Ping-Pong and Nerf Wars

Day 362 of 365- December 27th The ping pong table was up and running and was it ever popular!  Adam had me come and capture some photos of him and Caleb as he worked serving the ball to him.  Caleb was able to make contact with the ball on most of the serves.  I know Adam sees visions of him and his boys playing some doubles matches in the future! Later that evening, the dads and kids participated in the annual nerf war.  As always, I think the dads ended up having just as much fun, if not more, than the kiddos did.  Never a dull moment! The kiddos The dads Uncle Luke and his Iron Man...

Christmas with the Petersons

Day 361 of 365- December 26th We headed over to Adam’s parents house on the 26th to spend a few days with the Peterson side.  Memorable moments here: the grandkids (4 girls and 6 boys) are always so excited to see each other, surprising Grandpa Peterson with a new ping pong table (especially since he told Grandma Peterson just that morning that he was needing to replace the old one!),  seeing Uncle Phil in his Duck Dynasty beard (scary how realistic it was!), and opening up one of the best presents…EVER!  (I don’t have a photo of this one, but Adam and I were given...
