Girls Night Out!

Tues night we decided to have a girls night out with our women's bible study. Some of the girls were not able to come, but we went to the Melting Pot. That was my first time ever going there and I loved it! For those of you who have never been there, it is a fondue restaurant. We got a couple different cheese fondues and a chocolate one. They bring out all these different foods to dip in the fondues....the chololate one was my favorite:)

We didn't think to take a picture while we had all that delicious food on the table, but this is our empty chocolate good.

Liz and me! The lights down town in the Springs are so pretty right now!

Christmas Party!

Last Saturday night we had our Christmas Party with our bible study. We did a gag gift exchange and we had a great time! This is a pic of the whole crew! Dan and I were just talking about how God has just blessed us immensely since we have moved here with wonderful people in our lives and has provided for us financially in so many ways! So many people here have been so generous and have blessed us with things that we probably wouldn't have been able to afford. God is so good!

Kurt and Aubrey opened Dan's gag gift. They were thrilled to get a cigar box with a really ugly tie and a picture of Dan with his shirt off that he Autographed for them along with a couple of other silly items! WOW.......

Christy got my gag gift.....a stupid DVD and a shirt that says University of Toledo Marching Band on it!

Shawn got a hat that came from Africa.....he said that it should have stayed in Africa..haha

As you can see Laura is holding an ugly glass decoration that she got in the gift exchange!

My Relaxing Tuesday!

This is a small post that I thought I would share. Tues was the first day I've had off in a while and I was so excited to hang out with some of my girlfriends that I have made here (my midwest friends)! We all made a dish and had brunch! It was so good to just relax and chat in the morning when I should normally be working. I thought hmm......maybe this stay at home mom thing will be pretty fun! I'm sure all you stay at home moms out there can say that it's not just hanging out with friends all day:)

This year for Thanksgiving we were in Woodland Park for the weekend. We couldn't afford to fly home for X-mas and Thanksgiving so we had to pick. We missed getting to see everyone on Dan's side this year for Thanksgiving, as we usually get to do, but we had a great time with the Uher's! They have been so wonderful to us since we've moved here and I don't know what we would do without them! It is just such a blessing to have family around after moving to a new city.

We went out to eat Thanksgiving morning for's kind of become a tradition:)

Sitting down for our Thanksgiving meal

We had our first big snow that weekend since we've moved here.
After a funfilled day we fell asleep by the fire.....even Jack wore himself out!

As you can tell this picture isn't from Thanksgiving. We celebrated Polly's birthday at the beginning of the week.

We went out to eat and then came back to our house for cake and ice cream:)
