Snow is here to stay downtown

It snowed 6-7 inches downtown last night. It is truly beautiful and so amazing to see! Last night Bill and walked to a local pizza place for dinner. It was very romantic! This is the view from our apartment last night.
Today we went downtown with our friend Michael to do some shopping. It was great! Here is the downtown tree. I LOVE Christmas time!!!

Spokane, WA for the day or two...

Along our drive to Spokane was absolutely beautiful! The plan was to drive down Sunday morning and then return late Sunday night after Bills best friend Ryan's ordination to Christian Ministry so that neither of us would miss work. Unfortunately the roads were icy and with degrees of 10, we figured to be safe then sorry and stayed the night in Spokane. It was great to see Ryan, Abby and his parents-especially great to see Ryan ordained.  

 Congratulations Pastor Gackenheimer!!!

Rough week

This past week was very stressful as many layoffs took place at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound. I am very thankful to report that I was not affected. I was actually promoted to Match Coordinator and I start my new position tomorrow. It is kinda similar to what I was doing in Indiana with calling the families and volunteers to check in on their matches. I will also me preforming the match introductions where the big and little meet for the first time. I am really looking forward to this new opportunity. Prayers go out to the those whom where affected. May God Bless you!

Thanksgiving in Terre Haute

Bill and I arrived in Indiana late Thursday night. We celebrated  
Thanksgiving on Friday with the family-it was great to hug and love on
everyone! On Saturday afternoon friends gathered at my sisters house.
Though it was a short visit, we had a great time again hugging and catching up with everyone. I hope to come visit sometime for an extra long weekend or a week so that I can really have time to visit with everyone.
