Wow-

So ok, wow I haven't posted in a REALLY long time. Uh, fall came and went and now I'm just getting ready for christmas. I'm heading home from Dec 19th-26th so I'm totally looking forward to that. It'll be good to get some nice needed vacation.

As for what I've been upto, I've participated in several "service projects." I've put them in quotations as they were run through work as opposed to church so that would't be the technical name, but that's what they were just the same.

In Novemeber Citi hosted Global Community Day, and I got to go out with a bunch of my co-workers and turn some old trails into some really cool new biking trails. It was a TON of fun! There's just something to be said for digging in the dirt. :)





This past week I had the opportunity to go make Christmas Hampers with the Salvation Army for kids. It was so much fun until you started to think about why you were doing it, and then it was just sad. Let me just say that going forward I will be buying a toy with every pay check to donate to the Salvation Army at the end of the year. What they do is truely amazing, they manage to create Christmas for those who wouldn't have had one otherwise. Honestly working there on thursday really rung home the true meaning of Christmas. Sadley there's no pictures (We were too busy working to take any) however if any of you ever get offered the opportunity to go help you should totally do it!


What else to say...uh my brother got married in September...those were some good times. Other then that, not much new in my life. Hopefully I can post a little more regularly :)

Great to hear an update! The Salvation Army do some great things and it's wonderful that you were able to participate

Let the party begin... said...

It sounds like you have a very full life going on...I'm glad you mentioned the toy thing because Raven has so many dolls she has never played with that I think I'll let her pick some to donate. good to hear from you.
