thanksgiving 2008

This year, Sarah and I hosted Thanksgiving at our house. We invited anyone that was not going home to join us for a huge turkey (Sarah got a 20lb-er) and way more food than necessary. We all comforted each other in missing home since all of us have family out of state, so we made due with friends.

So now that winter is pretty much here, this has quickly become our new favorite video.

St. Nicholas

I have heard bits and pieces about St. Nicholas growing up but I'm not sure if I have ever heard this version. (or at least if I did, I sure don't remember it) But I kind of like it and like how there seems to be more meaning to what he did rather than just give money or gifts away to needy people. The funniest part is that I'm not sure if I ever picked up on the fact that the real St. Nicholas was from Turkey. I think I always pictured him from Germany or that part of the world. It would be interesting if St. Nicholas evolved into something that reflected more of the real story.

Happy moment

I never thought I'd have a joyous moment at the gas station...but this past weekend I went to fill up our new car and it only cost $21.35! Not only did we last about 2 weeks on one full tank but it only cost about $20.00 to fill it back up. It would take over $50 to fill the Jeep up and we were lucky to get two weeks on that. Between that and the falling gas prices...I was a happy camper.

Matt is off for a few days to Atlanta, Ga to get some footage of various InterVarsity alumni in their jobs. It's kind of a cool piece in that they get to ask these folk how they see God in their profession. Also, you can see some of Matt's work from this past year in the new InterVaristy annual report. Not all the pictures are his you can try and guess which ones he did.
