Hello 2014! - Baby, Reading List, and More

It is a new year and it feels as if there is so much newness in general.  Having II Samuel still feels new in so many ways and yet I cannot imagine life without him!
I love this picture of I & II Samuel! (:

This is a picture of the first day I started cloth diapering. Look how cute that fluffy bum is!

 This is experiencing the Allison Christmas Tradition for the first time: Handel's Messiah.

And a more recent one: Meeting Ben Swann last Friday!

This was at a Liberty Forum for discussion of candidates ranging from Republican's to Libertarian's. II Samuel behaved wonderfully, even though we were there from 5:30-11:15pm!! Not to mention car times from an hour + one way. This baby is a champ and was certainly a popular little man there.  He got so many compliments that night, more than any other time we have gone out. (: Methinks liberty-minded folks must like babies, despite the bad rap most get, ha. His cuteness and dashing hat might have contributed a bit. (;

I also have a new Reading List for 2014:
The Death of Death in the Death of Christ – John Owen
 Green This - Deirdre Imus
The Excellent Wife - Martha Peace
Last Days Madness - Gary Demar
       Leading Little Ones to God – Schoolland
       Always Ready – Greg Bahnsen
       Chosen by God – R.C. Sproul Sr.
     Rushdoony Book
     Nullification – Tom Woods
     End the Fed Freedom Under Siege  – Ron Paul
    I just completed my book for January, The Fearful Master by G. Edward Griffin.  Hopefully I'll have time to write a review in the next week or so. I decided whatever book by Rushdoony I tackled would be subject to change based on what I was interested in at the time.  And the same with the Ron Paul book.  I'd like to read one of his books a year until I finish them all one day. (:  But John Owen? We shall see if I end up tackling this book... I originally wanted to try reading The Institutes of the Christian Religion, but since I am in a bible study where we are going through The Institutes of Biblical Law I figured I didn't want to overwhelm myself all at once!  Maybe next year.  As I did last year, I only included 10 books to give myself time to think of 2 others.  I have already finished the one mentioned above, upon the recommendation of my sweet husband.

I also have a list of "Resolutions" for the new year, which I won't share here other than my blogging goal: two blog twice a month  (Once, check!) and reading one book a month.  I may share at the end of the year whether I failed or succeeded in my resolutions.

One new thing I am looking forward to experience is our trip we are planning for May of this year.  Lord willing, we want to attend our Church's Presbytery/Family Camp and in the midst of that visit the AiG's Creation Museum.

What are some things you are looking forward to this year?

Dear Reader,

When commenting, I would appreciate two of the following: first, that with humility of mind you might consider others better than yourself. Second, that you would not use inappropriate language on my blog.

Phil 1:21, Eph 5:3-4.

Thanks! (:
