New Year's

Ever since we got married, Ryan and I talk about what we are most thankful for at the end of each year. We agreed that finding Emmanuel Church of Greenwood and making it our church home is what we are both most thankful for this year. We have met so many wonderful people and have grown in our faith as Christians. Plus, it is so nice to have that support and community while we are bringing a new life into this world. :)

So, it is pretty coincidental that we spent New Year's Eve and the beginning of 2008 with some of our new friends from church! Beckie and Tim moved to Indiana from Washington State to work at Emmanuel and have quickly become two people with whom we really enjoy spending time! They LOVE playing games, which is one of my very favorite things to do, so we hit it right off...not to mention...Beckie is a great cook. :) Beckie actually keeps a blog, too, and shares a lot of her ideas/projects for doing crafty things. Check it out to see how talented she is: http://infarrantlycreative.blogspot.com/. She often provides pictures and step-by-step instructions to create various things, so enjoy! Anyway, Beckie and Tim had us over to their new house, and they also invited our pastor Danny, his wife, and their three kids. We had a great time! We ate a ton of food, played the Nintendo Wii and a game called Sequence, and talked and laughed the night away. It was the perfect way to ring in the New Year! Here are some pictures of me after we got home around 12:45 a.m. As you can imagine, I slept until after 10 a.m. today after staying up so late!
