Catching up...

It has been quite awhile since my last post, so we have a lot to catch up on. Let's see here...
* I am no longer working for Servpro. Of no fault of my own we separated on December 17Th.  It was really sad to say good-bye to some of the people that I grew attached to, but I am still in contact with my favorites.  Needless to say, I am still unemployed, and looking for work again.  It has been a battle, but I feel like something is going to work out very soon.
* Since I didn't have a job over Christmas break, I made sure to enjoy every minute of it.  I went Cross-Country Skiing for the first time on Christmas day with Chase and his dad.  It killed me, but I made it almost 10 miles.  In the end, I am so glad I went. It was peaceful and beautiful up there, and of course, I got some great pictures! (will post at the end)
* Another good thing about not working is being able to go to almost all of Lori's basketball games.  She is a senior at Northwest Christian University and is a starter/leader of her team.  It has been a long, long career of basketball for her, but I am really proud of all of her accomplishments.  We just had "Senior" night last Saturday, and was able to bring in quite the crowd to cheer her one.  I know it will be bittersweet for her to end her career next Friday night, but I must say I am really excited! Mom figured out that she has been playing for 15 years!! YIKES that is a lot of women's basketball.  I am still and will forever be, her biggest fan.
*For Christmas this year, Chase bought me a new smaller camera.  My old "point and shoot" drowned in the McKenzie river two years ago and I was devastated!  My new one is a great Panasonic Lumix and has been performing wonderfully.  Ohh how I love these things!!
There is much more to tell, but I think I will update as things become relevant.  Much love, and pictures of course to follow!

Jack and I got to hang out for the day. He is getting to be such a big boy. He is the sweetest thing ever!

Look at those cheeks!

As I am standing on a log, that is over this stream, Dad says "haha hope you fall in." Thanks!
