Giving Thanks

This Thanksgiving we're thankful for Jesus, family, great friends,and the unconditional love they've shown us.

We wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.  We think of those so much less fortunate than ourselves and ask God to help us be His love to a thirsty and hurting world.Our hearts are with our friends in Haiti and the serious situation they are facing this holiday season.

Our family counts each one of you that has prayed, encouraged, given, followed along, and loved a blessing and gift from God.  

On-line 'relationships' often feel empty and fake. That is not really what we've experienced here and we thank you for walking this journey of faith, struggle, pain, and joy with us. 

Seriously -

May you know His provision, experience His healing love, and rest in His mercy and grace this Thanksgiving. 


The FOURTH ANNUAL Livesay CHRISTMAS extravaganza entered production phase in late October. All of the filming took place weeks ago, we're editing and getting it ready now. What started as a last minute "horrible idea" in 2007 has turned into a family tradition. Members of this family have varying opinions on exactly how fun the tradition is, but most family traditions come with some rolling of the eyes and a smidge of consternation, right?

We hope to have the 2010 production finished and posted by mid-December.

To see the last three years go here/2007 (the year Silent Night took on new meaning and no one was able to remember lines) and here/2008 (the year we used a Mastiff as a donkey and Britt and Chris mailed footage from Waco) and 2009 (the year Troy declared Tara certifiable but still agreed to write a Christmas song) is posted above.

Last year included lifting a donkey in and out of a large truck. This year we had zero access to live stable animals. Our beards and costume stash sit in a dusty closet in Haiti. All that to say, now is the time to lower your expectations because we're going in a totally new direction this year.

We're taking off for a few days of family time. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
