Our "crazy" Christmas, 2009

Christmas 2009 seemed to come oh so fast. Rachel working the overnight shift at Target and I spent the first 2 weeks of December back in CT training for my job. With the business of this time of year the month of December seems to come and go by with the blink of an eye. Krystian and Krysteene were a big help and wrapped a lot of the presents. Since moving to Montana each Christmas seems to be different and we have not started any "new" Christmas traditions....some of our friends go out for Chinese food" on Christmas Eve while others stay in and eat buffalo wings and watch a movie "Christmas Vacation"...but no matter how busy we are or how hectic the days can become we need to keep Jesus Christ at the center of all we do. While we enjoy the presents, the food, the music and time with family and friends we need to remember to keep Jesus Christ at the center of it all and that when He was born in the MANGER He was already moving towards the CROSS. Merry Christmas!

Happy 15th Birthday Krysteene.

Krysteene celebrated her 15th Birthday, which is also Christmas Eve. We went to a family service at freshlife church and then she helped out in the kids ministry by playing with the 2yr olds. Not the way most 15yr olds spend their birthday but she seemed to be enjoying herself.

Snow angels.

We got our fist significant amount of snowfall for the year. It started to snow Saturday morning and didn't really stop until Sunday morning. It is expected to snow, off and on, until 5am Monday morning. As Krystian and I shoveled the snow from the driveway and sidewalks Kenneth and Kyersten took advantage of the time outside to make a few snow angels. The average temp this weekend was around 10 degrees but that didn't seem to slow us down. Now it's time for hot coco and possibly a hot bowl of soup for dinner...just what a body needs to warm up after being out in the cold.
