Mike and Kerry have been married for 12 wonderful years! Colin and Ashlynn keep us on our toes with activities, constant jokes and entertainment. We were blessed to add Bethany, our eldest daughter, to our family a few years ago...she started out as the best babysitter EVER and quickly became part of the family. We enjoy out Air Force life and view every move as a new adventure full of travel and new friends! In that great adventure we've moved from Columbus, MS to Suffolk, VA to Waldorf, MD to Fairborn, OH to GERMANY to Burke, VA and now our lates move settles us in bright sunny Fairfield, CA!

Winter Wonderland with GREAT friends!

Mike has been helping our
friends and neighbors
with their family room remodel.....
and it looks GREAT! 
We will post pics after
the finished product,
but everyone needs a break.....
so we took all of the kiddos
off to see the Ice
sculptures and lots more fun!

Have we said how much we LOVE our neighborhood
and neighbors!  Like Jenn said.....when we prayed for
friends for our kids when we move....
God blessed us this time with amazing friends
for the entire family!  Thank you God for the Dunne Family!

Easy Bake and so much more fun!

Boy the kids got lots of fun things this year....and we've had all the time in the world to play with them.  We've even had the neighbors to share our fun with :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS! He gave you everything...your life, your family, EVERYTHING! What will you give him for His birthday? Forgiveness? Acceptance? Extra time with familiy? Prayer? Food for the hungry? Time for the homeless? What is your gift?


yep....their my kids! Ash got up at 5 a.m. saying she heard Santa's bells! MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of my friends and family! Don't forget to thank Jesus for EVERYTHING and say an extra prayer for those who have lost loved ones, who are far away from loved ones, and especially for our brave military men and women and their families!

For all of the Birthday here!

The REAL Santa!

We needed to get out of the house today, so we got in the truck heading to the mall!  Of course EVERYONE else in Fairfax county had the same idea we did :(  We sat in traffic for 1 1/2 hours to find out all of those cars were going to the mall too!  But we saw the real Santa and got to walk through the Polar Express snowglobes, then get dinner, so all was well!

Daddy's Yearly Christmas Photo Shoot!


Still digging out

Well we still have lots of snow and it hasn't lost it's least for the kids!  We spent the yesterday still digging out and trying to start a snowman.....the snow just doesn't want to pack, but we will try again today! 

The kids dug out the reindeer and daddy started shoveling the deck and then decided just a path was good enough!
