I Wanna Wash My Hands, My Face and Hair With Snow!

So guess what? Denton is going to have a white Christmas this year! It started snowing today at lunch time and didn't stop until a few minutes ago.

Everything is white.




I love it!

We tried driving to Denton Bible's Christmas Eve service, but the roads were so ridiculous that they ended up canceling it and making everyone go home as soon as they could. We drove at 20 mph for the entire journey home... the roads were completely frozen and the snow was STILL falling - hard! Someone actually rear-ended my parents since everything was so slippery. Nothing serious, though.

I'll try to take some pictures tomorrow morning of my parents' house in the snow. It's just gorgeous!

This year, Austin and I are spending Christmas with my family in Denton (as if you couldn't figure that out). We drove here yesterday and have enjoyed spending time with my sisters, parents and grandpa.

I love being home. Everything feels relaxed and cozy. I love our giant couch that takes up the entire living room. My entire family can sit on it at the same time.

I love watching movies with my family and playing games with my sisters.

I love having a big family! Having four sisters is so much fun.

Well, to catch you up on the past few weeks:

The first half of the school year came and went. I love my students even if they drive me crazy sometimes! Oh, and finals week is the best part of the year! It's so wonderful to have complete quiet. I was able to fully plan the first three weeks of the next quarter. Oh, it feels good.

Austin and I have been looking for houses on and off. We'd like to find a house in the next few months, but we'll see how that goes. The area we're looking is pretty popular and so it's hard to find a lot of quality houses in our price range... but we're trying!

Our first anniversary is coming up in about 2 1/2 weeks. It's hard to believe that Austin and I have been married for a year! Craziness. I'm not sure how we're going to celebrate. We may or may not have a new niece by that time... Sadie is supposed to be due around the first week of January! I can't wait!

Ok It's really hard to write and watch a movie (It's a Wonderful Life) at the same time... so I'll have to write again later.

Before I post, I wanted to include something that was written inside a Christmas card that my family got. A family friend wrote it and I just loved her words:

"This Christmas may you rest in the deep satisfaction that because you have Him you have everything."

I just love that.

I am richly blessed.

Christ is everything.

Be blessed this weekend!
