I spent the first half of my break back in the Bend with my family. It was a great time of playing cards, sipping hot chocolate, and celebrating the birth of our Savior. We went to my parents' church's Christmas Eve service and heard a great sermon on Jesus coming as the light of the world and were reminded that He will come back again. I'm so thankful to serve a God that made a way for me to know Him through His own son.
Enjoy some pics of the festivities.
|Great Bend got over a foot of snow!|
|Reese thought the snow scraper was an extra large hair brush.|
|It's tough to choose between purple or orange in our house, so Reesie received two cheerleader outfits.|
|A snowman had to be made with all that snow! The Kid and Dad were the hard workers on that one.|
A group of us enjoyed an afternoon of hiking and making our way through a park. There were so many people out running and exercising that I was motivated to run...a few steps...I'd say more of a gallop. (See top left pic) No one there had to know that I struggled to even find my tennis shoes to pack for this trip.
|We enjoyed a treat from the food truck, Hey Cupcake, and some delicious tacos at Wahoo's.|
|Austin's motto is: Keep Austin Weird. I'd say we helped contribute to that cause.|
Happy 2014! Get excited for my "2013-Year in Review" post.
