Christmas in the Midwest

This New Year's Eve Debbie and I will celebrate our 12th Wedding Anniversary. I'd put this last year toward the top of the list to be sure. It is hard to believe that the last time we were "home for Christmas" was before we were married. After twelve straight Las Vegas/So-Cal Holiday Seasons we are flying east tomorrow morning to be with Deb's family in Indiana.

We did all of our Christmas celebrating today since we have to leave for LAX before 8:00 in the morning. Today was a very casual day. The kids got a Nintendo GameCube, which is about five years behind the times but they think it is the pinnacle of technology. I was able to usher Deb into the 2000's with her first i-pod. But mainly today was about doing very little together.

I'm looking forward to a week of rest, family, and dietary freedom...followed by a month of (hopefully) work and weight loss :)

Merry Christmas. Here's to the celebrating the unpredictable, unimaginable, irrepeateble birth of the most rebellious, counter-cultural, optimistic conspiracist the world has ever seen.

Stunning plans. Christmas in the upper east of Canada is the same, only possibly icier and snowier.

Rise to the New Year; we toast the way God will work among us in the world.
