Back in the Saddle Again....

Well, here we are, back in the saddle again, like literally this time! We've moved to a ranch - WHA? That's right, whether people read this or not, I've decided that I need to start writing just to testify what God is about here in North Dakota! So here we go again!

First up, the history: Did you know that before Sam and I even met each other, God had put a similar dream in each of our hearts?

From my perspective, which is the only one you get here :)

The Lord laid on my heart to be involved in a conference center/retreat center. I really want to be involved in a place where families can come and connect and get away from the distractions of their lives. I want a place where couples can come to some Christ-centered marriage retreats. A place where fathers and sons can focus on doing things that bring them closer and develop their relationships. And that's the start of it. Seemed like a big dream. One I kind of put on the shelf because how in the world could it ever come to fruition......

And then I met Sam..... all of a sudden EVERYTHING seems possible! But I digress! Anyway, as it turns out, the Lord had given Sam a similar dream! 

So together we got a plan - Sam would develop his art and eventually we would move to Wyoming or Montana where his art could finance this whole dream! North Dakota was temporary. 

Or so I thought. and hoped. 

I will continue the saga, but in the meantime, here's an update on our family since I see I haven't posted since our #1 was just born - now we have 3!

They are pretty cute, if I do say so myself! Stay tuned for more stories and pictures!

Hello! Anyone out there?! 

I notice it's been about 18 months since I last posted. Thought about getting up and running again! Most of you that follow this blog are pretty up to date on what's going on around here.... like Gabe has a little sister!!! Yep! Cassia Paige Coleman born December 3, 2011. So we are very busy enjoying her! Pictures to come, as soon as I can figure out this new blog system! Anyway, let's have a little shout out if anyone is out there!

There are lots of changes coming to the Tundra, at least in our lives! We are excited to share them and how God is working, but all that to come!

Is Daddy reading to Gabe?

Gabe's 1st Birthday

Going all the way back, did I ever post a picture of Gabe's 1st birthday?

We ended up having a pumpkin fest with some friends... Here's Gabe chowing down on his pumpkin cupcake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese icing!

We're going CrrrrAAAzzzYYYY!!!

One day, I was running late and had a dr.s appt. So I jumped in the shower to get ready and Sam was going to come back from his appt. to take care of Gabe. So after I got out of the shower and realized that things were strangely quiet, I snuck downstairs to see what the little Gabe man was up to. I saw two little white hands putting stuff on the step and I walked around the corner to see this little face looking up at me!I took my chances on taking a picture of him before I threw him into the tub to scrub him down with 5 minutes to spare!
I probably shouldn't have taken the time to take a picture of him, because he sat on my bench and put a gigantic white spot on it therefore ruining my fabric. Need to recover that still.... Oh well. But with a face like this, how could you be mad for long!!! Especially daddy, whose painting had deep finger gauges in it! Oops! :)
