...and none of it was Vanilla...

This week we took a little trip to Grapevine, Texas to a beautiful hotel and convention center called the Gaylord Texan.
Every year they open up this huge exhibit filled with ice sculptures that weigh over 2 million pounds! They keep the room at 9 degrees in order to not melt the the complimentary parka's were a huge help.
This place had so much crazy stuff...including an ice bridge, ice slide and an ice santa. All larger than life...we had a great time with great friends! Hope you enjoy!

Tis the Season

This past Sunday marked our last Radius of 2008!
What a great night to end such a great semester of blessing...and celebrate the love of our God.
It was an awesome night...and it just keeps getting better!

Apparently, the only pictures we got on our camera were of our fruitcake eating contest...that, and Jeremiah with a Rudolph nose...not sure where that fits in. But nonetheless, enjoy!
Thanks for keeping up!
You may now return to the edge of your seats...

Christmas Build-up

::Once's been all too long since the last update. So you can all rest your fingers from clicking back and forth daily to our site...because--Hark! There she blows!

Our Christmas season started about the same time that most of yours did...and that was the Friday after Thanksgiving.
We started the day by waking up at 4:30am...and heading out into the wilderness of Black Friday.
This was my first experience with Black Friday Shoppers...and man...i loved it! Well, with the exception of all the lame folks that i wanted to knock out--which was everyone, minus Ashley...sometimes :).
But it was a greatly productive day for us. And i stress the "for us" part...because i don't think we bought for anyone but ourselves. Tis the season, right?

We then headed home...busted out the decorations, and went for it! Decorations everywhere...apparently, everyone was so excited, just not much help.
For the first time, we were able to decorate the outside of our house for Christmas! After an almost life threatening incident with a ladder, a broken bulb, a three trips to Wal-Mart (still Black Friday..stay with me.) for a better staple gun...we were ready to go!
We decked it out this year! Well...decked it out in my sense of the word this time of year...but it was a great day to welcome in our second Christmas together in Dallas.

Thanks for keeping up!
