Can I really have only been to San Diego once?

I know right! I have only been to San Diego once! Weird huh? I went down to San Diego wit my friend Rachel. Her family lives down there. It was really fun. I am glad I finally got to go!

Under the pier.

Rachel (right) and I (left). It's funny it was weird to me just put our names in order because I am sure someone would have commented on the grammatical error of "me and Rachel" (Cough..husband, hehe cough cough)

I couldn't believe how close this pelican let me get. I know there is some zoom to a 50mm but not that much. I also couldn't get over how ugly these things were up close, yuck! It was all greasy looking and it had these gross claws on the end of it's beak. Pelicans always look so graceful in flight over the ocean. Oh well :-)
PS I just want to make sure everyone knows that lost is on tonight!!! Woowhoo!

Sad Day Friend...Not Really

Ok, Ok, Ok, it's not wasn't such a bad day. I have definitely had worse. Sunday was my day of teaching the 2 &3 year old Sunday school class. It was really fun, and they were really cute. This week they were all so good, and such good listeners. Last week was insane!!! Fire Alarms and toddlers don't mix :-D. Then later that day our car broke down! I hate car problems. But luckily I have an amazing husband who knows how to look at a car and call our road side assistance ;) he he. Isn't he cute! We "just" had to have our starter replaced. (It could have been much worse). It wasn't really a bad day though. I really love my sweet kids (sniff, sniff), I got to have lunch with one of my bestest friends, my husband is soo cute, and I went to San Diego that night. (Not in our car). So my day was sad but not really, God still blesses me when things are going wrong and I don't deserve it!

Girls, Girls, Girls

These are some of my adorable friends! They are really great to talk too and hangout with :-) We try to meet every other week, try being the operative word, usually we do pretty good. This was taken about two weeks ago, haha. I think it's a really good picture of them...I have definitely had better, that is not the greatest angle in the world for me apparently. It was funny, and slightly annoying (for them, I'm sure!) I was trying to do this with a self timer, and it was being D.U.M.B. I seriously took like 7 pics before I got one that none of were getting our heads chopped off. It did however inspire me two figure out how to use my remote control for my camera. This is going to be an exciting camera week! I get two things! A new lens (fish eye) and a new bag...wooowhoo no more green lunch bag :) I will have to show you the before and after pics. Oh yeah, I got my 50mm lens back from the factory. I wrote about how it just fell apart, well I sent it in to the cannon factory thank goodness it was still under warranty! And they just sent it back last Thursday. I love it :D I can't wait to have a pic with my new stay tuned!

Pro 27:17 "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."
I love this verse! It's so true, good friends sharpen each other. And these girls really do it, they are purposeful and a BIG encouragement to me! I love you guys!!!

Some of my favorite everyday memories from 2008

So ok there are a zillion pictures! What can I say we had a busy year :) Hope you enjoy

This is Bethel Baptist Church in Tredegar (Tre-dee-ga) Alan and I are going to do youth ministry here :) Very soon!

This is when I first got my camera, oh happy day.

My nieces above and below

This is Alan and his grandpa earlier this year before he passed away.

Alan and I went to Catalina for our one year anniversary, it was sooo much fun!

Morro Bay for 4th of July/ Gary's 60th Birthday

He is so much fun to be with

These are some great friends :)

The Bean!

And how could any group of favorites be complete without my sister! I love this pic of her, she's pretty cute :)

2008 was a year of change for us which is always hard...good but hard. As I look at all the pictures from this year I am thankful that during this somewhat year of making big decisions and not knowing exactly what was going to happen God blessed us with great friends, family and a lot of really fun memories that I will cherish for a long time. We love all of you and are excited about 2009 to see what God is going to do in all of your lives. Once again I think we'll have some big changes this year, as of yesterday International Teams told us to go ahead and buy our one way plane tickets to Wales. So we have a tentative date for January 29th. We are soooo excited and a little sacred, but honestly I would rather be scared out of my mind and be in God's will than live out side of what He wants for our lives.
Micah 6:8 "He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love Kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
So what do I want in many things. What do I need? To walk humbly with my LORD.
