Finally the day has arrived! I am an official "minivan" driving momma! Who would have known that I would actually be excited about this...We FINALLY decided on a 2002 Poniac Montana. It drives well, is roomy and Gavin loves the DVD player. I must say, I am happy with the way things have turned out. God works in mysterious ways...we are actually coming out on the better end...who would have thought??? Anyways, with all this new found freedom, we have been busy, busy, busy. Isn't it always that way?

Me, Jason and Gavin participated in our church's living nativity this weekend (http://www.faithlafayette.org/page616.aspx). For those of you that don't know, it is 12 scenes from the bible, acted out. It is really cool. This year, we all were in Bethlehem. Me and Gavin were commoners and Jason was a Roman soldier. Gavin was so cute in his biblical attire...wish I would have gotten pictures. Since it is Indiana, we actually have two different sets of cast for each scene so that no one has to stay out in the cold for very long. Just this weekend we saw more than 4,000 people come thru! It is truly a must see thing! Thankfully, the weather was gorgeous (for Dec) and it was more fun than sacrifice. Gavin had a blast and I am sure he will tell you all about it.

I can't believe that Christmas is almost here (8 more sleeps according to Gavin) :) Jason has the whole week of Christmas off plus a few days in January. I am looking forward to it! We are planning to go north Christmas day and then spend a few days there to visit with family. It will be busy, but we are looking forward spending time with those that we don't get to see very often.

Congrats on the new van! I am sure it feels great not to be trapped in the house any more.

I really thought Micah might wet his pants when he saw Jason at the living nativity, he has a thing against Roman soldiers ever since he watched this Story Keepers movie. If Jason would have asked him if he was "hiding any christians" it would have been perfect.
