I'd like to title this picture: Why I Haven't Started A Blog Until Now. Look carefully. See what Lucas has in his hands? That's right, my most favorite Christmas present ever (thank you Ryan and Kathryn). Our razor sharp J.A. Henkels knife. What better way to pass the time on a beautiful fall afternoon while Mom is figuring out how to create a blog. Can you chop the carrots and potatoes for tonight's chicken noodle soup while your at it, son? Thanks. Mom will be right up to supervise you.
Well, welcome to my blog anyhow. This first post will be a smorgasbord-ish smattering of events and thoughts from the past month. Enjoy, but plan on future posts being sporadic and disjointed. That's just how I roll.
Hope your Halloween was as frightfully delightful as ours was (complete with an 18-inch-high Best Child's Costume trophy for Micah at our ward's Trunk-or-Treat)
This is my brother and I. If we could talk him into getting some highlights and waxing his eyebrows, people may start mistaking us for twins. I've always felt like we shared more DNA than anyone else, and here is the proof.
Mr. Coleman and I went to visit Mr. SPM at his rehab two weeks ago. It was scary/emotional/exciting/hopeful. I could recognize a tiny spark of who he really is, inside the shell that we have known for the last several years. Keep praying. Keep hoping. Miracles are occurring.
Five years ago the Coleman family welcomed a tiny, delicate 5 pound baby girl during a dark and wintry period of our lives. She has been the special sparkle that has brightened uncounted moments since then. She celebrated her birthday with friends. They danced, ate cake, played games and LAUGHED.
