Hello, world, from Leipzig!
We are having a wonderful reunion with our daughter, Amber, in Leipzig, Germany. Sorry to say, I don't have an easy way to post pictures on the blog, but if you want to see what we have been up to, check us out on facebook:

Life, Beautiful Life!

Oh, boy! You are going to LOVE the great things I have for you today!

Amy has edited together an absolutely beautiful short movie from the 8mm film footage shot at Amos and Cara's wedding last year. She captured the day exactly the way I remember it! I Love it, honey! Thanks so much for making this keepsake of one of the best days in our family's history: The Day Cara became one of us.

Scene II of the art of Life is a slideshow (FINALLY!) of Ava Lee Joy Murrell's birth. If anybody remembers, I left you all hanging last February wondering what happened after 9:00 pm. For a refresher, check out:
Ava's Birthday, Part 1

Ava's Birthday, Part 2

So, here is the rest of the story: The Birthday of Ava Lee Joy Murrell

I truly love each and every shot in this slideshow, even the blurry, out of focus, less than technically perfect ones, because they are like unique fibers, woven together, to make a glorious tapestry. This is the story of a remarkably ordinary day changed by the miraculous arrival of a new little sister, which will forever change a family.

Last, but not least, your puzzle! Amy snapped this today with her iPhone while we were cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway from Monterey to Big Sur. Awesome country!

Riding the Polar Express

Click to Mix and Solve

What a way to start off the the Christmas celebrating! I got up at 3:30 this morning to take Agape and her friends, Jeannie and Britney to Bryson City, NC to ride the Polar Express. The bed is calling my name loudly, so I won't elaborate how terrific it was. Here's a quick slideshow for you , Coach!
