Happy New Year!

Oregon weather is so weird! Yesterday it poured down rain and the snow was quickly melting-we can see grass now!! What a change from a week ago. Yesterday the grater (snow plow) finally came through our neighborhood.......by that point we could already see pavement, so I'm not sure how necessary a plow was. It would have been nice if they could have come earlier. Yesterday was the first day in a while that I could get out of my driveway!
What a difference it is between living here and Spokane! Life here kinda just stops when it snows! But finally things are getting back to normal and people are coming out of hibernation! I'm thinking that in about nine months we are going to see quite a few babies!! :)
On another note, yesterday was Bill and my 13th anniversary! I cant believe it's been 13 years! It's been great though. Bill and I have grown together as a couple over the last few years and I LOVE being married to him. He is such a great husband and dad and I am looking forward to the many years to come.
Bill is on vacation this week and the boys are loving having him home. We havent really gone anywhere over the last couple of weeks (besides me going to work) and it's been so nice to stay home. I'm becoming a home body! It helps that I live in St.Helens and there is not much to do here and I dont like driving into Portland too much.

Today is my 8th day on the job. I am loving my new job but by the end of the days my brain gets so fried!! There is so much I have to learn and am thankful for the 8 or so months of training I'll be getting.
Anyway, thought I'd do a quick update.......hope you all have a great New Year!

Happy New Year Stephanie! I'm so excited to see what 2009 brings for you guys. God is so good. Yesterday I was telling my brother in law a little about how thankful I am for what God has done for us this year. Tears welled up in my eyes as I tried to express how much it means to me that He brought Scott back around to ministry again. We learn and we grow through hard times. I am certainly hoping for the best in 2009, but I have grown in leaps and bounds in faith in 2008.

Love you sister!
P.S. I think the weather is weird all over the place. It looks like we're going to bring in the new year with some crazy wind. : )
