After my 25 days of Christmas posts, I feel like my blog is very neglected!

We finally got snow! Well, we've had some snow here and there, but now we *really* have snow! We got probably 6-8 inches on Wednesday and it's been snowing off and on since then with more snow in the forecast. It's been snowing pretty good most of the day today and the evening church service has been cancelled because of it. It's a hassle for travelling, but it sure it pretty to look at!

Monday was eventful...I had Braxton and we were having a great time together. We were "talking" on the phone to each other, he was playing with a baby doll pretending that it was Lizzie (whom he calls Zizzie) was so cute he would hold her and pat her, put her in the high chair and pretend to feed her, take her to go potty...hilarious! And then it happened...we were walking out of my parents' room and one of the dogs ran past Braxton knocking him over. He fell right in the corner of the wall and split open his eyebrow. Talk about feeling horrible! I took him to the ER and met his mom there. The little guy did so good while they glued it together and has been doing really well despite having a black eye and his eye being almost swollen shut one day. I know accidents happen, but I really hope that I never have to deal with anything like that again. 

I made some homemade flour tortillas last night, and they were SO good! Soooo much better than store bought. Josh was skeptical that I could do it and had some other tortillas on standby, but I'm happy to say he didn't need them. :)

Lastly, I'm working on a project that's been keeping me busy. I'm super excited about it and can't wait to share what it is! Be on the lookout sometime in February...oh the suspense! ;)

This past week, Maggie and I had the opportunity to go visit a fellow blogger! We've gotten to know Rebecca through blogging, Skype and even talking on the phone. We had talked about how it would be fun to actually meet someday, and probably a month ago Maggie and I decided to just see how much it would cost to fly out there. To our delight we found great tickets and decided to go for it! 

We had such a great time of fun and sweet fellowship with Rebecca and her family! THANK YOU for having us!! 

We got to spend a day in Chicago!

On the train back to Indiana

We went to Michigan and got to see Lake Michigan, which looked more like an ocean!

On Sunday, we got to ride on Rebecca's bus route as they took the kids home. 
We also go to meet another blogger on Sunday...Nicole!

The college was having a volleyball marathon while we were there. That was fun to watch!

On our way home we had a layover in Denver, so we got to see the Rocky Mountains...very cool!

Be sure to go to Maggie's blog and Rebecca's blog to see their post about our visit.
