Winter Jam 2006

Last night we went to a concert with our youth group and some friends from work. Winter Jam 2006 was the name of it and it's probably the best I've ever been to. Hawk Nelson, ZOEgirl, TobyMAC, Newsong, and Newsboys were some of the featured artists. It had an awesome gospel presentation and a sweet motorcycle "death sphere." As awesome as it was, I think I'm getting old because a couple of the artists started hurting my ears. I think they may still be ringing.

car crashes

In the past couple weeks we've seen some weird stuff on the road. The first picture on the left shows a car that was actually driving in front of us in that condition. I knew Kentucky allowed alot of stuff, but I'm pretty sure that still wouldn't pass inspection!

The second incident we saw yesterday and was even more unbelievable! Driving home from shopping, we passed an apartment complex right before ours. The house right before the apartment entrance had a car lodged in its front door. I was driving, oblivious to the whole thing until Michelle said, "Woosh!" I still don't know quite what that means, but we turned around and drove back by the scene to check out the damage. The picture isn't that great and was taken as they were towing the car away.

The really funny thing is the story behind this picture. We didn't have our camera in the car, so I walked back to the scene afterward and walked by on the road taking several pictures. I walked past the house, crossed the street and started walking back, looking unsuspicious. Apparently I didn't succeed because the policeman called me over and started drilling me with questions about who I was and why I was taking pictures. Apparently the driver had disappeared. Thanksfullly, the policeman seemed pretty satisfied that I wasn't the driver and didn't arrest me.

youth group

Amy and Michele eating dinner before youth group. They are both in our small group and are quite the characters.

birthday boy

Well it's time to actually post some photos from the holidays. We had a wonderful time at Michelle's parents, and also at my parents. My grandparents (left) went with us to a very nice restaurant for Pop's birthday and also to celebrate their anniversary. Also check out our other holiday photos and Michelle's quilts.

happy new year

Well we made it home yesterday to our sweet little apartment after driving over 7 hours. Our visit to see both parents was wonderful. Wonderful, that is, excluding us both getting the flu, getting work done on our car, and Michelle's trip to the emergency room! But as Michelle and I kept saying, "We're doing better than we deserve."

So today it's back to work, and poor Michelle was almost buried under hundreds of web orders to enter. But we survived the day and we're almost halfway through the week.
