Well, it finally happened. I fell on my basement stairs Tuesday morning. It could have been worse. I tripped on the second or third stair going up. And I was holding on to the rail, so I just strained the muscles on my right side and have stair marks up my left side from where I hit the stairs. They bruised pretty fast! :) The one on my hip is really ugly! But I think it’s already getting better! All the better for the 3 hr car ride tomorrow!

Have I mentioned that our pastor is leaving? It's sad for the church, but his new job is so perfect for him, we can't help but be excited for him. Tomorrow we're doing a sending service for him. Endings are always hard for me, so I fully expect to cry. (Ben knows me well enough to expect that!)

and it's snowing again! Twice in two weeks! It started this morning.

So you may or may not know that I prefer to finish my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving. But this year I'm still not done! The Plaza was packed! The Discovery Channel Store was shoulder to shoulder!

And I've started working on an anniversary present for Ben. It will be five years in January! Amazing...

So here's a picture of my mom's parents when they came to my house for Thanksgiving.

Snow pictures

The snow was so pretty. And I got a day off from work in the bargain! :) I cleaned the house, and made cake for Ben, and then made cut-out gingerbread/molasses cookies and decorated them. It was so relaxing. (And it reminded Ben very fast that he needs gloves! - we got them on Saturday)

Here's my back deck early Thursday morning. It had just finished snowing. Posted by Picasa

And here's the view from my front porch. Posted by Picasa

It’s the first big snow of the season! I’m not a huge fan of the cold, but snow is pretty!
