Okay, So here is the deal, Andrew and I will be traveling over the holidays, and lets just say that where we are, there is not much else. No phone reception, no high-speed internet...just us and the family! So I will try to post Tomorrow night, then I will be back with photos of the Baby (Fred) and the family. If you are going to be in the home town, give me a call. (call my parents house!) Peace and Love to everyone! Be careful if you are traveling!!

We just can't get a saturday of sunshine...and I love it!!!

Hello! I love Christmas Parties! It gives me an excuse to dress up!!!

I should mention that Andrew has lost 20lbs since July!
It is so un-believable, we have had 3 Saturdays in a row of Snow and icy-rain! It is amazing! It has been coming down all day today! It is 9:30p and has been snowing since about 12:00. The roads are bad, it is cold outside, I am actually cold, and I don't even care beacuse I love this weather!!!
Mike is up and he hung out with me and Andrew all day we ran some errands at about 2:00. This is what the roads were like then and here are some other photos from the day!

Photos...and stuff

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

We got rid of a piece of furniture that was just...well...not us. We replaced it with this, and i really do think that it has made a huge difference!! I love it!

This is Andrew being silly. Actually, he was throwing ice at me while I was taking photographs!

and this is my street!

Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I love the weather! We are having what most people call terrible weather, but I love it. Everything has this beautiful glass like appearance! It is just gorgeous. I know, if it were worse and taking our power out, I wouldn't like it so much, but you know what...I do love it!
I am going to take some photos when I get home and post 'em up for you! have a wonderful day!!

This Christmas!

Why is it so hard to find the "perfect" christmas gift. I must say that it is a blessing and a curse to be a "gift giver". I love to give gifts. I love it when someone opens up something that I have gotten them and is excited because they know that I actually put some thought into it. But I am so sad to report that this year, my life has been crazy and I haven't been so intentional to listen to what people want or need. So now, here I am, 3 weeks before the big celebration and no ideas about what to get. PLEASE LEAVE ME LINKS if you have any ideas!
the reason why this is a curse, is because, although i would be happy with nail polish as a gift, (i would say nothing, but i think I would actually be dissapointed if I didn't get anything) I would way rather give than recieve. So even though I am not wrapped up in the commerce of the Holidays for my own sake, I am officially wrapped up in it for the sake of others!!! what is wrong with me. Anyway, I am seriously excited the most, this year, to spend time with my family. My brother, my sister, my sweet little nephew and my husband. I can hardly wait to spend more than a frantic 2 days with them!
I am also wanting to find a way to bring Jesus deeper into the season. Andrew and I have talked about lighting an advent wreath together, but growing up baptist, I don't get the depth of yet, so I haven't made it of utmost importance.
I think it is so weird how being in the ministry, Jesus has become such a MAJOR piece of every bit of every day, I have started to realize that I just asume that people know that i am giving praise to God because of "what I do". Isn't that weird. I am thinking that I need to be more outward, even though my job and walk reflects my love for the Lord, maybe my words are less so.
This is a long e-mail full of random thoughts. Sorry, but let me ask you one more time!
Do you have any fun gift Ideas?
peace and Love...*Sarah
