All Under One Roof for a Weekend!



This weekend was half celebration and half good-byes. Smiles and tears.
Our WHOLE family was together for the twins’ birthday so we made the most of it and went swimming, shot skeet, played games, sibling talks and held little Evan!
The good-byes were because Hannah, Dustin and Evan are moving back to MN temporarily. Kind of a test move for them, but they are planning on coming back the beginning of December sometime. We are excited for them…but at the same time it’s so hard to see them leave.
So here’s lots of pictures from our time together. We had so much fun =)

Our group picture kept getting bigger! =)

Caleb ran the slinger for us and would shoot the clay pigeons we missed! He’s just that good!


For 7min. Maggie is older than Carinna and LOVES to rub it in! Just because she can.

Part of the swimming group.

Lots of nephew, son, grandson and great-grandson lovin!! He’s a sweet, cuddly, smiley baby.

We had a great conversation!

Make memories. Family is a treasure.

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Rom 8:38-39

Little Dornink’s baby shower


Last week, Mrs. Mount hosted a baby shower for Hannah! The theme was “ready to pop”. She was blessed with lots of fun and handy things.

Mrs. Mount was so creative and made an adorable diaper cake and put together 2 survival baskets for D and H with things that “pop”!

At a baby shower there’s enough babies for everyone to hold!

San Antonio, TX – CWVFF


The 1st annual Christian Worldview Film Festival was held this March in San Antonio, TX. John-Clay was one of the 33 speakers at the guild and he had a part in 5 of the films that were entered. So, with that brief history, our family drove the 7hrs down for the closing ceremonies and presentation of the awards last Saturday! Our family has been pretty scattered this month so we were excited to be all together and take a trip for the weekend!

We got to meet lots of great people John-Clay has worked with this past year and see some familiar faces again too!

John-Clay’s Haiti project won best Promotional Film and Awakened won Best Documentary!

Sunday morning before we headed home, our good friend and host while we were in TX, treated us to a delicious breakfast at IHOP.

We had a great time! It was neat to go and be able to support John-Clay and see the impact God has given him on so many lives in the filmmaking world!
