Well, we haven't finished our Japan trip blogging but I (Shonda) thought I would write so that if any of you are still watching our blog you wouldn't give up on us!
Life here in the deep freeze isn't too bad until you decided to go outside! The weather has forced us to rearrange our project schedule a little as any project that involves being outside or in new construction is not an option when the windchill is 30-35 below zero!
We've been working on a draft for our annual letter, due out on whichever holiday that is closest when it is done! Until then, here is a sneak peek of a few things that God has blessed our year with...A warm trip to Florida in February; another fun prom season, highlighted by a prom on a boat in Stillwater, MN; a busy summer of gardening; our first 4th of July at home; being kitty cat couriers from Denver to Lake Preston; an incredible trip to Japan to see Shonda's sister, Shan (see previous blog for pics!); Thanksgiving in northern MN; many Christmas celebrations with our families; and New Year's Eve at home watching football while snuggled up in front of the fire!
