Winter Wonderland!

Paul took this picture from our apartment a few days ago when
it snowed! He used the snowblower for the first time!
There are a lot of new experiences this year, especially since he
is from California!

This picture was from Josh and Melinda Landers wedding
on December 18, 2010 at Camp Joy! Paul's pastor from California,
Pastor Greg Landers came to be in the wedding! Both were
amazed at the new winter sights!

Growing and Blooming!

Paul's family sent us an amaryllis bulb. Paul planted
it, yes in the middle of winter, and we watched it grow!
What fun! Paul's gardening skills are great! He has the
green thumb!

A few weeks later! The flower is in full bloom! Good thing we
took this picture, because a few days later it was in full wilt!
God also gave us a gift of new life (our baby) but he/she will not bloom
until about August 5th!

Baby News!

Surprise! On Christmas morning Mom and Dad Bird
found out that they are going to be grandparents
in the beginning of August! At first Dad
thought it was a wedding photo album.
Lydia told him to look a little closer!

Of course, "Aunt Lydia" was surprised also!
We called Mom and Dad Sondergaard the same
day to announce the news. The last gift they opened
from us was a baby book for
Grandma and Grandpa Sondergaard! :)

Our First Christmas Together!

We spent most of Christmas day in our new home!

Paul had a white Christmas!
