Weekend Birthday

It was our nephew's birthday this weekend, he is now 4 years old! I just can't get over how fast they are growing up. I have to say that I am always so flattered when they are excited to see me and when they ask, "Where is Aunt Carrie?" It is such a good feeling to have them recognize me as family. Here are a few pictures of the bowling birthday party.

Here is James blowing out his candles.

James is truly the sweets monster of the family, takes after his dad and uncle!


Scott and I also saw the Al Gore Documentary on Global Warming. Hey it was free! It was pretty interesting, we both learned a lot about the topic. And that's all I really have to say about that. You'll have to check it out for yourself. I will say this though. Be thankful for all God has given us, the beauty of the world, it is all pretty amazing.

No MORE Chili!

OK, I think I've had enough Chili for 2 cold winters in Iowa! My stomach cannot handle anymore tomato sauce! But did I tell you it was good! But it's time to move on and empty the left over bowl into the garbage.

Anyways, now that the uncertainty of my life has calmed down a bit, I find myself missing that uncertainty. Each day seems to be the same: I get all day, come home, work some more, watch some TV or at least stare at the TV while my mind thinks of 100 other things, warm up the bed, go to bed. Can anyone else relate? In a week and a half things will shake up again as I go back for 2 weeks of training. Then in March my brother and his girlfriend are coming to visit, followed by my parents. This is very exciting because neither has been to our house here in Savannah and my parents haven't even been to Savannah! So check back in March to see their exciting adventure.

Well, American Idol is on...time for a little therapy as I watch these crazy people with skewed perceptions of themselves and their voices put themselves out for the world to see. I love to see the good ones get a chance though!

Here are some good reminders to help me on my journey with God: (We just started studying Romans)
1. Personal Righteousness will not save me. (Romans 1:16) "...the Gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation."
2. Pursuing righteousness will sanctify me. (Romans 1:5) " call them to the obedience that comes from faith."
3. Personal commitment will position me for greater service. (Romans 1:9) "For God whom I serve in my spirit..."

Super Bowl Fun. Way to go Colts!

On Friday night Scott took me and his parents to see an off Broadway show at the Savannah Theater. It was called, The Fantastic's, it was a nice, funny story line and we had 1st row balcony seats. The singing was amazing, and for very few effects, it was pretty good. The best part was it felt like a real date night!

On Sunday, Scott and I hosted a Super Bowl party with our Small Group from Church. I made the biggest pot of Chili I've ever made and it was delicious thanks to a tip from my mom! When the guys arrived they played some football outside for awhile and the girls played some kind of words game??? Bobble or something like that. It was really funny when they started playing during half-time and it must be the quietest game ever because there was not a peep out of them! I, on the other hand, was watching the football game ever so intently as the Colts went on to win 29-17! Go Colts! In between I was also attempting to make ice cream...oops a little runny...and brownies. We had so much food! Anyways, we had a blast!

After the game Scott and I cleaned up in record time, I was really tired, but I was so happy this morning when everything was put away.

Everything else is going well, I feel like we are getting our life back to a normal routine.

Love and prayers to everyone!
