Thankful Thursday

  • I am thankful that we knew Ken McCarty. He was an elder at our church and such a great man. His memorial service this week was unlike any I have attended. It sounds weird to say it was perfect, but it truly was. We were heartbroken he was gone, but so encouraged to know He was with God and had given so much of his life to share that with others.

Trip to Joplin December 2016

We had plans to drive to Joplin to see “A Christmas Story” at the Joplin Little Theatre and Mike’s sister was still in the hospital, so the girls made this garland for her room. We had a good visit with her and were so happy to see how much she had improved in the month since we had seen her.

Dinner with Gwen!

We had brunch at the awesome restaurant Karsten works at and if you are ever in Joplin, go there!  The Bruncheonnette 


The Homewood Suites we stayed at was really nice too. A very family friendly place. We enjoyed the show at the theater and had such a nice visit with all our family up there.
