a little public service announcement

a couple things.
first is fun and easy:

this year when addressing your Christmas cards send an extra one to this address:

Holiday Mail for Heroes PO Box 5456 Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

the cards will be sent to soldiers, veterans and military families. to read more about the program click the picture above. (also a fun service project for a group of kids or adults)____________________________________________

#2 Housing market and Foreclosures

I hope that none of you reading this will even need this information but it looks as if there are some advocate programs out there that will try and help you restructure your mortgage if you are having difficulty making payments. I have not personally used this group (yet) but it looks as if they are moving in the right direction.

off their website "HOPE NOW is an alliance between HUD approved counseling agents, servicers, investors and other mortgage market participants that provides free foreclosure prevention assistance."


stay safe out there ya'll, it's getting scary. There is no time like now to remember what this holiday season is about ... I'll give you a hint, it's Jesus, NOT shopping.

ok so that wasn't really a hint.

i can't even stand the beauty!

Kate wrote a beautiful post about our family picture session called Generations in the Groves. It was so heartfelt, and I'm glad her experience was as beautiful of a memory as ours was!
Thank you Kirk and Kate!!!

Rainforest before - can you see the trees in there? How are they getting any sunlight??

Left side before, right side TREES!!! (HAPPY TREES!)

OH now I see why they are SO SORE and physically exhausted!

RAINFOREST AFTER! Can you believe the difference? This is only ONE of the several buildings (see here).

(scary! standing over the rainforest)

I don't know who should be prouder, the crew that did this, or the biosphere itself!!!
