A Little Update to Wet Your Appetite!

Hey guys we hope you all had a great holiday season with friends and family. Ours was filled to the brim with fun things to do and people to share it with. I just wanted to update y'all a little on what has been happening with us.
We were able to see both of our families this year and mine was actually all in one place (Dad came home for Christmas) everyone had fun celebrating birthdays and watching some of the bowl games on TV.
Sadly, this year when we chilled at the Brown's we missed spending time with Acacia (she is serving the Lord in Russia) but were able to have a fun day with the rest of the Brown bunch!
Terence got his first gun for Christmas and since has discovered he is a pretty good shot. I on the other hand will maim the wall rather than hit an intruder!
Terence had shoulder surgery on January 4th and the lucky duck got to miss the first week of school because of it. He is doing well and doing everything possible to get ready for his senior season of football which he wouldn't miss for the world!
Everything has been going well we have had a few bumps in the road in the realm of home maintenance, but thank heavens I have a Father-In-Law that knows about plumbing. T's shoulder has kept him pretty low key and when we discovered that we had a plumbing issue we immediately called Robert to come and take a look. Luckily, it was a minor issue and we made out with a brand new faucet installed by Robert of course because T is an invalid and I don't know a hammer from my hiney. The faucet looks good and surprisingly doesn't leak, who would have thunk it! Now I just have to get my kitchen deep cleaned to match the newness of the faucet because it looks a little out of place with the dirt and grime!
Again we hope everyone was able to remember the reason for the season through all of the travel and stress!
