December 16th was our last Sunday at Farmdale Baptist Church. Mark preached in the am and pm services, and then they had a nice reception for us after evening church. The cake was really good :) We will miss our friends there. They are really sweet people.
Hope with one of her favorite Christmas presents. She loves that stoller.
Hope and Aunty Robin. We had a very good visit to So Cal for Christmas. Thank you to my family for making everything so nice and for being so good to us! We got to see some friends too, but not everybody. I am sorry I missed some of you! Obviously I didn't get very many good pictures over Christmas, since I am only posting one!
This is a picture of many of my girlfriends from Louisville. We had a goodbye lunch at Ernestos, and it was a fun time. Whenever you make new friends in the seminary community, you know it will most likely be only for a short time. But this doesn't make goodbyes any easier! From left to right: Lori, Krisiti, Me, Suzie, Julie, and Jaimie. Both Kristi and Suzie are planning on adopting from Ethiopia this year! Very exciting.
Mark's parents came to help us with the move and we are thankful. We had nice warm 50 degree weather to move in with, and it has not gotten too scary cold yet. Hope and I even walked around the campus yesterday. No pictures of the new place yet, but hopefully soon. Hope's contributions to the packing process looked much like this. She has transitioned well - she seems to not notice there is any difference in her life at all - except for that annoying molar that is coming in.
Thanks for reading and for keeping in touch. Happy New Year!
