Merry Christmas from my family

For Christmas, I decided I wanted to post a picture of my boys, since they rarely (if ever) grace my blog. Apparently I need to pick up my camera more when they are around - because looking back over my pictures from this year, there's none of us as a family (and no one wants to take pictures now) The boys don't change as much from year to year as younger kids do, so I'm posting pictures we had taken for last Christmas ... by Char from Authentic You Photography.

Jonathan - now age 16. He looks happy in this picture, but he's even happier now - because he passed his driver's test this week
(yes, I'm praying ... a lot!)

Joseph - age 19. He's packing to leave for a week of snowboarding in CO this Saturday with a few buddies. He's making the most of his break from Penn State Berks, where he's studying Mechanical Engineering.

Joshua - age 21. With this job market and and him graduating from West Chester University (Communication Studies) in 2011 - our conversations the past few days since he's home have revolved around the question of what he will do then.

 With this picture, we could be a band ... if we could sing.

Merry Christmas to all!
May you find peace this season.

(even if the potatoes are lumpy, the same old
discussions happen or the house is messy)
