Every year we go on a retreat with all the girls who lead in student ministries.  It's always one of my favorite weekends.  It is always really chill and relaxing.  Without fail I get to spend time with people who I already know and love and also spend time getting to know new people.  There's something about the bond of people who serve in this ministry - it makes for great friends for sure.

This year we were out at Possum Kingdom lake staying in an amazing house of a Watermark family.  They are always so gracious.  Mel had us do a project with playdo describing where we were spiritually.  Really funny, but it does make you think.  I don't have many pictures, but it was a great weekend.

Photo taken by Jen.  It's pretty.

Ringing in 2012

For New Year's Eve Jen and I had friends over to our house. I drove straight in from my Christmas celebration in Granbury.  We all made food, brought wine, and played fun games.  I love it when our worlds mix.  We introduced Michelle and Charlie to Jen's friends Tiffany and David and it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.  I'm a dork.

Anyway, not much to say about the night, other than it was so much fun to start a new year off with good friends and laughter.  Even looking back, I am so thankful for all my friends.  I didn't take a single picture, so I stole all of these from Charlie.

 Let the games begin!

 Tiffany is fun to watch play games!
