Christmas Card

It has been so fun to catch up with old friends and make new ones this year through this blog! I don't even have most of your physical mailing addresses so consider this your Christmas card from our family to yours. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas filled with special times with family and friends. We hope you are filled with Joy this season as we remember the most precious gift ever given. Jesus Christ.

No time to Blog!

Our holiday season has been jam packed already! We celebrated our Christmas with Russell's side of the family this past weekend and had a great time. This week will be focused on concluding our Holiday Food Roundup at church where we give 1 weeks worth of groceries to 50 families including a full Christmas dinner. It is an awesome undertaking but so rewarding. Thursday we will start our trek to Georgia to spend Christmas with my family. The only thing we are not looking forward to is the LONG car ride with an almost 9 month old!

Visiting Santa at Abby's Birthday Party

Here are a couple of pictures with Santa today at Abby Railsback's 1st Birthday party. We actually already visited Santa a few weeks ago, but since I don't have a scanner I couldn't post the picture. I guess we aren't too afraid of Jolly Old Saint Nick yet. A little suspicious, but not afraid.

It goes around....

You know. One day you are all about keeping your blog updated and then the next it feels like a chore! I enjoyed reading about everyone's Thanksgiving in their postings. Ours was relaxing. We headed down to San Angelo to see Russell's family on Tuesday and didn't return until Saturday evening. It truly was nice to get away from the hustle-bustle of life here that we can never seem to get a break from. In a nutshell our activities consisted of shopping with my mother in law,EATING, going to see Nana, spending time with Russell's (ughm) interesting cousins, EATING, going to see the new James Bond (which was FABULOUS,by the way), and, oh yeah! More eating.
I have a little more than a week left for this semester and I am just READY for it to be over for a few weeks. Classes have been really great this semester, but I am in NEED of a little break right now! We did go and get our Christmas tree on Tuesday which is always an adventure. This year seemed a little easier than last year...but still, we had to find the "Perfect Tree" for Annaleigh's first Christmas. I know she won't care much about the presents this year, but her face is priceless every time I turn on the lights to the tree.
I will leave you with some pics from Thanksgiving at my in-laws house (she had her tree up the first or second week of November!)
