Florida 2009

Well, I've finally found a lull in my day (or month as it were) to put some stuff up. So, here is the trip to Florida I took with Allison in September after my birthday.

Me and Lissie.

This is the dinner I made for us. Each of us cooked either lunch or dinner while we were down there. Lissi and I did dinner and the boys did lunch. I made chicken pot pie and fried apples. I have to admit, it was pretty good....especially the apples!

And here is Allison's. She made shrimp scampi (which was delicious by the way), green beans, salad, and garlic bread.
One day at the beach we had the idea to make Allison into a mermaid. So we did. And here is the finished project. We put seaweed around her for decoration, and on her head for a crown. It was tons of fun, but unfortunatly, the seaweed itched Lissi like crazy and her arm was really acky after laying like that for so long while we covered her in sand. A lot of people who walked by really liked it and took pictures!

The place where we stayed also had a neighborhood pool and we would go there when the beach got really windy and the currents became dangerous. Right to left: Elijah, me Lissi, and Lee.

The second day at the beach, Elijah and I decided to make a sand castle, which then turned into a contest between me and him, and Allison and Lee.

And the finished project: We won the "Best Aslan's How Look-a-like Award". Course, we were the only ones to build an Aslan's How Look-a-like. :) Oh well, it was fun and it really did look quite like it.

I had a great time and am so thankful to Lissi and her family for allowing me to go with them. Lissi teased me that I took the place of her guitar. ;) Hopefully some time this weekend or next week I'll have more pics up of Red River!!! Stay tuned.

So much for keeping on track...

Sorry guys,......again. Things keep going way too fast for me too keep up with stuff. So, some more updates.

1. My Dad had surgery this past Wednesday on his back. Two of his lower vetebrae were sqeezing around his spinal cord, cutting off the circulation to his legs. As a result, his legs were falling asleep when he stood up for a while. Luckily the surgery went wonderful and he is alreay home and on his feet. Please continue to pray that his incessions don't become infected. The incession is causing him some minor pain, but his back is feeling better already.
2. My trip to Florida with Allison's family was soooo much fun! I have pictures and as soon as I can remeber where I placed my hard drive stick, they will be on here! ;)
3. My book is going good, however I will not be posting my book on here for copyright precautions. But, I will be posting snipits.
4. We went to Red River last weekend and had an amazing time. As soon as I get some pictures from Allison, you can be sure I will update extensively.
5. My cousin is now married and both Andrew and Kendall looked wonderful! My other cousin, Nathan will be marrying his fiancee, Robin, in January.
6. Upcoming events include the annual Thanksgiving trip to NC, Yule Fest in December, and Nathan's wedding in NC.

Stay tuned for more details. ;)
