i love christmas time b/c it's one of the few times where we get to spend quality time with all of our family back north
it's great going from the country which is quite and relaxed and snow filled to being in the city and wrestling with my niece and nephew...and of course jenica and i both love the face to face conversations we get with parents and siblings no matter how great skype may be
crazy to think that we are just a little more than 24 hours away from a new year starting....i don't think i have ever been as expectant for a new year to start than this one. Not b/c this year has been bad, but b/c i am more excited than ever to see what God has in store
i am still hoping to get a "favorite shots of the year" post in, even though that may land a few days in to 2010....we shall see though
here are some more from chicago - bowling and korean bbq
keep watching intently
celebrate with dance despite the outcome - then repeat
mom and dad!
korean bbq time!
they brought out tiny marshmallows for the kids at the end of dinner...it was great! inspired a run to the store for s'mores back at home in the fireplace
finally some fun with lights on the drive back from dinner (i wasn't driving - btw)
