Quick Update

Christmas was wonderful. Mom, Dad, and Katelin all came up on Christmas Eve and stayed 'til the 29th. We had a great time. We went sledding every day but one, played a lot of games (mainly Mexican Train) and gave my parents a tour around town. It was a nice relaxing and fun time having them up here. Hopefully I'll get the pictures on my computer soon so I can post them.

Tim has been doing some free websites to get fun toys. So far he has gotten an xbox 360 elite and an ipod touch for free! So he pretty much had his Christmas before Christmas thanks to himself. The junior high youth leaders all pitched in and got Tim Guitar Hero III for the xbox, that has been a fun game. Before Christmas we had the junior high kids over for a game night of xbox and card/board games. Then on New Years Eve we had the senior high kids over for another game night and sledding. Needless to say, I'm tired of all the songs on Guitar Hero, but it was worth it to spend time with the youth.

My work life has calmed down dramatically. Hallmark was done before Christmas and Friday was my last day to teach at the pre-school I was at all December long. Now all I am doing is substitute teaching. It's a bummer going from a steady position for a month back to a random class each day blindly, not knowing what to expect of the students and what they are working on.

My voice came back which was nice, too bad I didn't have it for work though. Oh well. This morning I was sneezing and blowing my nose constantly so I took some allergy medicine before church which made me really loopy. I am still feeling the effects of it, so I guess it's a 12 hour thing. Hmm.

Sundays will be even busier for Tim and I for a couple months. We'll be going to the 8:30 service, teaching 7&8th grade Sunday School at 9:45 then at 11:00 help out with another class teaching Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. Today was the first day with that schedule, so I'm pretty tired. Hopefully I'll get use to it and I wont be so drained each Sunday.


  1. Its awesome that you guys are doing the Dave Ramsey thing. We had the class at our church as well, and it was just soooo helpful for everyone.

    It sounds like you guys are doing awesome... we are all praying for you guys up there! :) Enjoy that snow. We haven't even had any ice down her. I'm jealous of y'all.

    Yours in Christ,
