A Couple of Good Excuses & Some Pics

Sorry it has been so very quiet around here. All I have for you is a couple of good excuses and some pictures.

First this month has been…crazy. Like over the top crazy. Between Christmas, snow storms, out of town house guests, holiday parties, family get-togethers, a few run-ins with Santa, buying a new car, Compassion reunions, conferences, getting everything squared away to start 2011 strong, and work there hasn’t been much time left for blogging. Boo.

Second I have been basking in the rare “in real life” time I have gotten to spend with family and friends. As great as technology is at connecting us, it doesn’t compare with late nights lounging on the couch with good friends, with lingering over a long meal where the only thing better than the food is the conversation, with ooohing and aaahing at the new addition to Suzanne and Bryan’s clan, with crowding on the couch for a family “Sound of Music” sing-along, or with seeing the joy on my nieces faces as I “make” them some hot chocolate (with lots of marshmallows of course).

What are some of your favorite December memories?

PS – My favorite new social media tool is Instagram. If you have an iPhone you need to try it. I absolutely love how easy it makes it to share pictures and engage with others.

  • Favorite Christmas memory… one year, we almost didn't have a Christmas tree, because my Dad was on a "Down with capitalism at Christmas" kick.

  • My favorite was this year. Ethan (6) came downstairs on Christmas morning and told me that Santa must love him or something because he put crazy awesome toys under the tree.

    And I love the community around instagram.

  • December has been a crazy month.
    I have spent more time away from living at home then actually living at home
    A couple of weddings, snow storms and family have made december feel like a week long instead of 31 days long.

    Favorite memory is probably these last couple of days with family.
    Also, I think it was this month, but CP worship night was pretty epic.

  • Not a lot of Christmas memories this year for the wife and I….no family in AZ makes for a lonely holiday. It has shown me how much I took my family for granted when we were all together.

    I've been able to play some shows lately and more people have heard my music, which is pretty cool.

    And I completely agree with your thoughts on instagram…fantastic, it is.

    • a Christmas with just a spouse…sounds so relaxing and romantic…but maybe I've watched one too many FaLaLaLa lifetime movies 🙂

      • It definitely didn't suck….but seeing our other friends with their new babies and families made us miss our own relatives. On the brightside, there are now talks of children on the horizon. 🙂

  • My favorite December memory is having our daughter phone to tell us how excited she was about coming home for Christmas. She lives 2000 miles away, and it's always nice to see her again face to face, give her a big hug, and let her know how proud we are to be her parents.
