We were rejoicing around here at 4:30 when the UPS guy pulled up in front of our house and brought our new Christmas tree! We've been waiting for what seems like forever for it to arrive, and it finally did...just as we were getting ready to leave for Pizza with Santa at the kid's elementary school. We cut our time there a little short to come home and put the tree up! NOW it feels like Christmas at our house, and we are ever so glad!!!

Yesterday and today have been very good days, but very, very busy. Yesterday after church, we drove to Denver to meet with some friends. We get together there once a month, with 3 other families, and it is always a rich time together. We spend the entire afternoon visiting and praying for one another, and we always leave feeling so encouraged...and so grateful for their place in our lives. It is amazing to me that we've made such wonderful friends in the short time we've lived here.

Today John got some promising news. Most of his freelance work is for NavPress, and they called to ask about his interest in a writing project they've got going. I don't think I'm at liberty to disclose details at this point, but it sounded promising and John was excited about it. God has been so faithful to give John steady work, and we are tremendously grateful!

I've almost got my commitment to the Christmas for Kids project wrapped up. It's been a great experience, but I'm ready for it to come to a close. John is ready too. He's watched Abbey for me more times than I can count during this project, and I think he's ready for a break! I'm afraid I've used all my babysitting privileges for a while!
