"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with friendship." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well, here are some highlights from our "Christmas Vacation"
I didn't want to post these too late...seeing how January is nearly half way over!
My Aunt Nancy was able to spend some time with us celebrating Christmas!
I believe she just drank her first Jager-bomb!
Looks like it was a good one!
Jenni & I

We had a great time. There was a lot of Guitar Hero, and Wii bowling going on! Lots of yummy food (thanks aunt Nancy for the navajo tacos) (thanks mom for yummy beef roast with mashed potatoes and the works!), games and fun! Being so far away from everyone is hard...but so wonderful to see everyone!!
We have been married for four wonderful years!! Ben is beginning his 5th year teaching- but this is his 1st year teaching elementary PE! He also is doing as much mountain biking as he can! Emily is an oncology nurse and is starting her 3rd and final year of grad school at UT this fall!
"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us..."
