Micah's first haircut!

Due to the frequent confusion by strangers over whether or not Micah was male or female, we made the decision that it was time for a haircut. For the last several months he has had these beautiful curls that made the decision a tough one to make, but it's definitely more important that he know he is a dude. Of course, during the haircut, the leopard print cape didn't help that situation. However, despite the totally embarrasing cape, he did great! NO crying and barely any fidgeting. Wow, so thankful for that. I was wondering who would take pictures since he would be sitting in my lap and Noah's, well, 6. But when we got there our good friends Zach and Sarah just happened to be there. Zach was just finishing up with his haircut, which turned out nicely, and they agreed to stay and take pics. Thanks guys! We kept some of the curls, but his "i'm so obviously a boy" look improved by about 50 percent. It's a start.

Chinese New Year

Well, it's been a fast and furious beginning to 2007. New Year's Eve wasn't exactly rockin' at the Dixon house, but we celebrated our own Chinese New Year with take-out.
Duane and Noah "made an appearance" at a party while I spent some welcomed time at home with Micah - sleeping. New Years Day Duane and I hit the road to Atlanta for the Passion conference while mom and dad kept the boys. Thank you, Thank you mom and dad. The conference was great! 24,000 college students came to praise God. Just seeing it was awesome. We came home on Thursday to a sick Micah, and Duane and Noah came down with it on Friday night. We won't go into details, but it was not a pretty virus.
I did not get it, PRAISE GOD! As soon as I realized that Noah and Duane were both sick, I started praying. Somebody had to keep up with the recovered Micah!! Duane is well and Noah is now battling a cold, so he is still a bit under the weather. He was well enough to get started back with homeschooling today though. We are praying everyone will be well on Wednesday when we are supposed to leave for Panama City. Duane is leading a board of people who are putting on another conference for college students, The Gulf Coast Getaway. We will return from that on Monday and then I am desperately hoping for some normalcy in our schedule! (i'm not however holding my breath, for I am married to Duane) Happy New Year to all of you!
