the first big Missouri snow

at least for us!

Merry Christmas!



and Christmas came early

2010 has been a big year in many ways.  New home.  New church.  New schools.  New friends.  Wonderful and hard all at the same time.  So this Christmas needed to be a little special.  One trip to the Humane Society makes all the difference:

Merry Christmas!

Ellie declares her love…

…for her daddy!!!


double digits

10 years ago today, seminary finals were temporarily interupted by Emma’s early arrival.  In true Crisman kid fashion, she was a week early.  You can read her birth story here.

Today, she is 10.

Double digits.  It’s a big day.

She’s an awesome big sister,

has a great sense of style,

beautiful blue eyes,

loves to spend time with her family,

loves the Lord and has a big, compassionate heart.

Emma, we are so proud of you!
