Christmas 2009

We had a great Christmas with lots of family this year! We got to see Grandma K, Grandma D, Grandpa D, Aunt D and Uncle D in addition to all our parents, our siblings, our nieces and nephews! :) We enjoyed spending time with everyone and can't believe how generous everyone was! Thanks again! 

We just love this season and Christmas time. It's so nice to spend time with family and celebrate Jesus' birth! I can't believe that also means it's almost 2010!

Eagles and Rams Prevail

Great start to the week before Christmas! J and I got to go to an Eagles game with some friends and they won 6-4! It was a great game and I got some action shots I posted below. :)

Eagles playing.

More Eagles playing! We had seats in the 4th row, so we could see A LOT of the action! :)
So J's bro graduated from CSU this afternoon and it was great. The speaker was very good, quite motivational and short winded! :) Here's part of the gift we gave him. Cool huh? J and I had the idea and I picked out the record and he assembled the clock! I think I will have him make me one too! :) We also gave him a Gerber multi-plier tool.
The ceremony at Moby Arena. This is the whole College of Business graduation this December, way smaller than my Liberal Arts College back in May of 2007!
We had a nice lunch around 2pm at Red Robin in celebration of his graduation with the fam.

Tonight we have a Christmas party to go to as well, so it's a full weekend! :) Until next time!

Fa La La La

December is sure flying by! Slow month for subbing...but God is good and in control. So we are resting in that. :)  I am continuing to apply for other jobs, but haven't heard anything. There are jobs out there, just way too many people applying for them.

J's semester is wrapping up, and just has a final tomorrow and on Thursday. Then he'll be completely done with classes and just has his dissertation to finish! So that's exciting.

J and I just had a blast this weekend with our Church's Christmas program. We both had solos and God's glory was singing and ringing in the halls of the Church! Fun, fun! Jesse's fam came Sat. night and mine did Sunday night. :)

We just got invited to go to an Eagle's hockey game this Friday night with some friends of ours. So that should be fun. Neither of us have been to one of their games before! :)

J's brother's graduation is this coming Saturday. So it will be nice to see him walk! Then that night another one of our friends is having a little Christmas party that we are going to! Which I'm excited for! She's making tons of fun food I guess which is cool! :)

Tis the season

Wow, it's already December 1st. Can you believe it? I sure can't! We don't even have any Christmas decorations up yet! I am going to work on that tomorrow though. We had a great Thanksgiving and we are looking forward to Christmas time with family!

J's prelim went well, and he passed! :) So that set a date for his final exam. So, that's exciting to have a date for everything to be done! We are so excited to see just where God wants us and all He has in store for our lives. J has quite a list of places he can apply for Post-Docs and can basically start applying now. (It's a little more complicated than that with etiquette and all...but for all intensive purposes he can start applying now, since his prelim is over!)

As for me, same ol' same ol'. I have a couple more schools on my black list and I have had fun overall subbing these last few weeks. I got to sub one week for a music teacher in Wellington and I will sub there next week too. 

So, if you haven't already heard on Nov. 18th, our Jeep's spare tire, wheel and bike rack were stolen while it was parked on the CSU campus around 2pm. Crazy huh? Thankfully, our insurance is paying part of the damages and we already have a brand new spare tire and wheel to replace those. (We had gotten 5 new tires for the Jeep at the beginning of November.) I still don't understand why people do thing like that...but at least they actually took something this time, unlike back in April and just slashing the top of the Jeep. Our poor Jeep though...

Thanks for all the prayers. :)
