I can still remember holding that tiny little baby (5.0 lbs, 16.75 in) and thinking to myself, only eighteen years with her! Well, time has flown by and Elisabeth turned eighteen in June. Since Slovakia has a thirteen year school system she still has one more year to go, but she’s looking to the future: college in the States, developing her voice talents and driving (have to be 18 in Slovakia).[Read more…]
We hope that during this holiday season you’ll take the time to remember the greatest miracle that has ever taken place in creation–God became flesh, the Holy One took on the sins of all the world. And he did it so that you and I can be reconciled to him and dwell forever in his Holy Presence to experience blessing and peace and joy forever.
From all of us in the Patterson house we wish you a wonderful Christmas season and blessed 2020.
Elisabeth is keeping up on her violin and voice and it’s amazing how much improvement we continue to see. I especially didn’t realize how much a person can improve their voice through practice and training.[Read more…]

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours. May the wonder of the incarnation seize your heart and may you have a happy and healthy 2019!
Every year I think it’s time to do something different for our Christmas greeting but as a family we enjoy going through the photos of the year and watching the end result. So, once again it’s time for our annual video Christmas greeting.
Max loves climbing and he loves the outdoors. If he could, he’d spend all his time hiking in the mountains in our back yard (and beyond) and surviving on whatever he can make do with from the forest. So he’s the perfect candidate to interview for a climbing segment on local TV.[Read more…]
We hope you are enjoying a wonderful Advent season in anticipation of the coming of our Lord and hope you have a blessed 2018. Enjoy this greeting with a short photo overview of our year while Jana (piano) and Elisabeth (violin) play “A Song from Secret Garden.”
We had a beautiful fall in Slovakia this year and snow as early as Nov 1. Check out our fall 2017 photos.
