What in the world are we doing swimming? you ask. Cody was on the winter retreat with our church so Jordan and I hung out all day....First we went to the pool at the junior high and did some swimming
then we headed to the library to play a little chess.....
came home and changed clothes and went to dinner at the Olive Garden courtesy of Ken & Debbie! Thank you so much. We had to wait an hour to get in so Jordan made a friend outside, Anthony, and they played in the snow a little together! We asked him what he wanted to do fun after dinner and he picked walk around the mall! How fun is that? Blah

When life hands you lemons (five days of almost continual snow) what else can you do, but make lemonade.........
Tom and the "super sled" ( 2 pairs of skis from the trash screwed to a board for a seat) head up one of the best places around to sled ride.....WH high school...Cody.......and Jordan have both gotten pretty good on their snowboards....the olympics can't be far away....
Tom opts for a more traditional ride.....he also ripped his pants on the way down........
The super sled goes so fast there isn't much time to stop......Statement of the day, from Tom while looking for his gloves " if you aren't wearing gloves on the super sled, you can't stop"!

Good-bye 2009

We say a fond farewell to 2009 and begin a new decade on this big celestial ball. What will this year hold? Do we really have to take some of last year with us or can we have a fresh new start? These are just a few of the things going through my mind this new years eve. So many questions. I am not one for making resolutions, mostly because I never keep them, but somehow I feel like the only thing that we can do is trust God. To not try and understand why but to ask "how Lord, how can we make this happen"? Trusting Him to work out all for good, to His glory. Happy 2010! The only thing I really wish for us all is PEACE, may it fill your heart and your life this whole year through.
