Blogging enthusiasm

I wanted to post a little note to let everyone know we haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Amber and I have been very busy lately with work, home life, and some other things we will probably mention in an up and coming blog. A few weeks ago we repainted our bedroom and I installed a new ceiling fan last weekend. I am going to be installing new flooring in our living room hopefully in the next month or so. It finally came in last week and we are excited about how it will look. We promise we will post pictures to let everyone see our progress.

We are also excited that some of our favorite shows are back on. Prison Break is back on and even more exciting. Amber and I forget to breathe we get so caught up in it. We've also been enjoying new episodes of The Office. So funny!!

Tonight we start our 13 week 'Truth Project' series at church. We are very excited to be leading that, and we hope the turnout is also good.

Hope everyone is doing ok and hangin' in there. It has gotten a bit colder here, and we definately do not like feeling like icicles. Stay warm everyone...and maybe our family in Arizona can send some warmth our way! (Hint hint Jack and Jane)

Love you all!

Christmas 2006

So, not having internet at home and being busy at work = no blog posts!

But, so that you don't have to wait any longer, here you go! Christmas pics!

Sharon's beautiful tree. I guess they grew up with the real thing but have matured into the artificial variety! Our artificial is still standing and will be until Monday when I have off and will take it down! (Thank you MLK Jr!)

My Johnson side of the family started a tradition where everyone brings inexpensive gifts and then we play a dice game where every time you roll doubles, you get to pick a present. Then, when all the presents are gone from the "pot," everyone opens their presents. Then, we played for 8 more minutes and when you had doubles you could steal a gift from someone else! As you can see, Nathan is quite the dice roller! He had all of his gifts lined up like a choo choo train!

Jason and I after the service.

We did have a very nice Christmas and new year. It seems like so long ago that I am having a hard time writing more about it... We were blessed with many nice gifts from our family.

I am still in the midst of wrapping presents myself! We are going to visit the Andersons this weekend to celebrate and to the Johnsons the last weekend in January. We like to extend the season!


To...Brittany who turned 17 on December 29th! Yes, Brittany came into this world 17 years ago on my half birthday! I am so amazed at how quickly she is growing and what a fine young lady that she is. I am working on getting her to come to college by us...

To...Easton who turned 6 on January 8th! Our little buddy is becoming quite the little man!
That is all for now! We did paint our bedroom last weekend, so we will have to get those pics up, too. Every room is now painted (except for the spare bedrooms!) Next home adventure: flooring in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Jason "inherited" a great table saw from work for this project! Score! He gets to "store" it until further use. Ahh...the joy on a man's face when he has a new tool (even a used one!)

It's 2007!!

To all of our readers and occasional visitors...we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a safe and memorable New Years Eve/Day!
Amber and I had a great little break and made some great memories and were able to spend Christmas with my family. More stories/pictures will come, but we've been too busy relaxing and enjoying our days off. It's back to the grind for me, and for Amber starting tomorrow. She can update all of our faithful blog readers on the highlights of our Christmas and NYE celebration. Until about sharing some of your memorable moments with us, or maybe your favorite gift you received for Christmas, or even a New Years resolution you want to share.

Until next time....
