Baby Jesus

This Christmas season got me thinking about Jesus in a whole new way. I've heard the Christmas story many times. I've read it for many classes. I've heard numerous sermons preached on it. But this year, it struck me in a new way. It became more real to me than ever. Jesus came as a baby. God, the creator of me, the creator you, came as a baby. The Almighty came into the world not as a mighty ruler, but as a vulnerable infant. Although I've hear the story many times, I've never digested the story in this way. It's never really hit me until recently. This was such an incredible thing which my God did for me. Just a thought for today. Have a great day everyone. much love becky

Yay for Monday Night Hockey

This was our first hockey game of the semester (there was a game last week, but we didn't go). It took a little longer than usual to get there because of the snow. That's right, we're finally getting some snow over here. Still not a whole lot (about 6 inches), but plenty for me. Anywho, the hockey game was a lot of fun. We won 10-5 or something like that. Blazer hockey rocks! haha. Well, that's my attempt at trying to update this thing a bit more. Enjoy the few pictures from the night. much love becky

All bundled up

Say what?


Good times with Kate

Nice pass, eh?

Fight, fight, fight...or not

More action

Christmas Break

We've been back at school for just over a week and it feels like we never left. The first week of classes are finished and there are piles of homework to be completed. Although it feels as though we never left Sussex, we did--for three weeks. Our Christmas break was a lot of fun. We stayed busy with a lot of travelling. We were both in Oklahoma from the 18-27. The majority of our time there was spent visiting with family and friends. It was great to be with family for Christmas. On the 27th, I left for Oregon and spent a week there. I had a great time. I got to see my brother and sister which I am so thankful for. I didn't think I would get to me sister for another couple of years. I also had the chance to catch up with a lot of friends from high school. This was the first time I'd seen everyone back home since I've been married which was a little weird at times. As much as I miss Oregon and miss everyone who is back there, the trip back made me so thankful for where God has led me in my life. I wouldn't change a thing. While I was in Oregon, Jeff did some more visiting with family and friends. He also had the chance to do some hunting. The day after I got back from Oregon, we flew back to Providence. We stayed a night there and then drove back up to Sussex. Here are some pictures from our trip. much love becky
