Happy Thanksgiving!

i am so very thankful for our friends who volunteer (free of charge which is amazing!!) to come over and babysit (or just watch tv while adelaide sleeps) for us so we can get out for an evening. it is a really nice blessing. i have a lot of friends who don't have the same type of community and for them i wish i could fly over for an evening just to watch their babies or their tv's.
i have loved the time spent with Justin listening to good music since for the most part that is where we go when a babysitter comes, a concert. i also look forward to the time when adelaide can come with us to these concerts and enjoy some of the tunes with us.

Iron and Wine was fantastic last night! really good.

Thanks friends. We know we are blessed and you are the blessings.

interested in learning a bit more about this Ron Paul fella.....

hey all,

so my friends are off......waiting for their flight currently.
don't have much time to write (once again) must clean up the house before THIS concert tonight (thank you andrew!)

i think for 2008 whenever i write a blog i am going to also include a really cool quote from some amazing person. i like this idea and i have been encouraged lately by quotes.

oh for the info on the new car. i believe it is an 02 chevy cavilier. it was very well kept and justin seems to really like it. so, yeah........very cool.

hey all.

here we are monday afternoon. this marks the beginning of a crazy month and a half.
i am very excited. i love the hussle and bussle. the visitors. the cooking. the food. sometimes the weather (when it isn't 100 degrees). the parties. the decorated church. the ugly christmas sweaters. making gifts. the movies (love actually!!!). sharing. giving. inviting. man, i dig it all.

right now my house is a mess. the laundry is piled up. we still only have 1 car. adelaides crib sheet has poop on it. oh yeah and she pulls herself up to a stand in the crib (yikkeeeess!!!). i haven't shaved my legs in a looooooooong time.the kitchen floor is really dirty. and guess what.......we are going outside to play with the neighbor children!!!

oh did i tell you guys that tomorrow night for Justin's work christmas party we are going to spend an evening with Rod Stewart. hahahaha, isn't that hilarious. it's gonna be a hoot. i'll have to tell you all about it if i find a minute.

did i also tell you that the new season of Project Runway start Wednesday Night!!! YAHOOOOOOOO!!! Justin and I can't wait. too bad it's from 10-11pm at night. it is gonna be a stretch for me to stay awake that late on wednesdays but i think i'll be able to do it.

hey guys, lets just keep rockin' and rollin'.
don't let the malls fool ya, joy isn't in them (although sometimes i find joy at American Eagle :0).

Joy to the World!!!

P.S. dudes, i bought a pair of jeans and the belt loops in the front are smaller than the ones in the back....have you ever heard of anything so freakin' lame? how am i supposed to wear a dig dang belt?

Note to the greater church at large:

STOP TELLING ME WHAT TO DO and instead create space for me to frolic and dance with Jesus!!!! Love me. Keep me.

per heathers request here are some Halloween photos of Adelaide.

Adelaide was a pumpkin BUT the costume was too small (it was a handmedown) for her so she basically hated every second being in it (as you can see from the photos :)). But you know we had fun! The Piglet is Adelaides friend Kiley and the Elmo is Victoria.

Enjoy.
