My car accident

I was in a car accident last month that was quite a shake up for me but luckily no one was hurt. I am doing fine- a little sore in the back and a bruise on my knee.I hope my back won't get worse and I am grateful I am in such good shape- blessing #1. Blessing #2 was that the children were not with me. They were at my friend, Jenny's house, and I was on my way to pick up Jason from basketball. Blessing #3- no one was hurt and we all walked away fine, no one had to go to the hospital. Blessing #4- the accident happened right in front of a fire station. The response time was impressively speedy! Blessing # 5- Our car was not an expensive one so to know that it was totalled did not crush us- unlike the young man's car that hit me- a rather nice Mercedes. Blessing #6 - my friend Jenny was my first phone call to get Jason and she came to be with me at the accident- it made all the difference in the world to have a friend there! Blessing #7-Heavenly Father was protecting me and all involved and was "with me whithersoever I goest" (Love this years YW theme!) I have a small suspicion that the young man involved was talking on his cell phone but I will never be sure. I didn't even see him coming.
We have since purchased a new car and the beautiful thing is that it is completely paid for- that was our first priority. It just isn't fair to get your car totalled when you only have one more payment to make. We again found a great deal in San Francisco. I believe there is not a strong demand for minivans and they just want to get rid op them!

Devon and Indoor Soccer

Devon had the chance to play some indoor soccer at the beginning of this year. He loved it and picked it up very quickly. It was sooo much fun to watch and some of the best soccer I have seen kids

his age play. He doesn't look excited because he didn't want his picture taken!

Christmas 2009

Here are some pictures of our Christmas morning. Unfortunately, I don't remember much except that it was a very quiet and relaxing day, a good day. We stayed home and just played for the whole day.

Lance blocked of the living room and made them line up before they could come in on Christmas morning.

Devon's Arrow of Light

Devon managed to complete everything for his arrow of light a month before his birthday! I can't say it enough but good scout leaders rock!
