What a different Christmas..... This has been the strangest holiday season. I got the tree up and the lights on and never got it decorated. It must have been catching because my mom did the same thing. My mom and dad didn't get the presents wrapped this year so they handed out the gifts out of the bags they bought them in. You know when you do Christmas like that you realize what is really important. Family, time together, and just playing and enjoying each other is what really matters.

We have had some great time together. We will be holding on to every moment before school starts again on Jan 6th. Lauren starts mid January.

I pray that you are all blessed and have a great New Year. I can't believe it is already 2009. How has that happened. Our lives are like sand through an hour glass (heard that somewhere before). But oh how true. That is why the Bible says redeem the time because the days are evil. We must make the most of each moment knowing that we can never repeat it or have it back to do something different.

I love you all may God bless you.

let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.....

WOW!!!!! This morning at 6:00 I woke up to snow cascading down like I have never seen before here. It snowed hard out here in Central until around 9:00. We accumulated about 3 to 4 inches. It is truly the most beautiful and peaceful sight. Watching it snow was so incredible. Yes I was officially declared the oldest kid out here on the property. It is after 4:00 and we still have snow blanketing the ground.

Christmas is fast approaching. Shopping still left to be done and going here and yon. Lauren finished her last final today. I am so proud of her. She has officially completed her first semester. Bryan is getting ready for his midterms. He has also started his basketball season. I love watching him and his friends play ball.

I love you all more later.
