It's Vegas time of year...

So, here we are - Vegas for our yearly visit...FOR WORK!

We tease and say there's some kind of brain washing that goes on. While we're here, the days run in to nights, you sometimes get to eat and take a load off of your feet...

...we're mostly miserable while we're here, but we get so loopy we have fun in the midst of it all and still kind of look forward to it every year.

Here are Julie & I last year...
THIS YEAR - add a little nauseousness to the mix...and I'm not sure how this weekend's going to go! We start work this afternoon for a few hours, then dive in tomorrow.

Please pray for me :) That I take breaks often, get some food, and the nauseous feeling doesn't take over...I actually don't see it too hard to get the breaks - since I'm training people in my position (WA-hooo!)...and getting food, since my mom and sister are good at always bringing food up to my area (in case I don't get away)...but that whole nauseous bit - it's out of my control!

Crazy Weather!

You've heard it on the news, or you're living it - it's been raining here for a few days now, and it's expected to continue for a bit!

As we are each sitting at our desks working hard away for our largest event of the season next week, someone shouts 'HAIL!'...and we all come out of our offices and run out to the front and just watch it come down!

...I find it VERY interesting that we come out to see hail. We stand together in a line, shoulder to shoulder, commenting on the rain and the weather...and I say, 'Funny how we don't come out to see and enjoy the sunshine, but we all run out to see this!'.
I know, it's not crazy snowy and windy weather like Indiana and Chicago.
It was a nice little break that we all enjoyed together momentarily...and I got to reach over to my husband and touch his hand and have a moment with him since we work together :)
...ANYWAY...just thought I would share!
Hope you're enjoying your day and the weather - wherever you are and whatever it is!

Catching up

Isn't it perfect how the background and our pic go together?! :) I heart that my handsome hubby enjoys wearing purple - my favorite color. it looks great on him ;) ...This picture was taken on Sunday, 1/3, our last full day in Indiana...we realized we hadn't taken any pics with the snowy background (on our own camera) so we headed out and got this great shot -thanks to photographer Connie :) By the way, for those that do not know, of my three Boyd sis', I share my name with one of them - isn't that neat?! I always want to call her my twin even though I know that isn't the right terminology.

ANYHOW - I thought I would do a little catch up on posting pics - starting with thanksgiving. It doesn't look like we pulled out the camera while we were at Aunt Kim & Uncle Mike's, but we did while we were at my sister Diane's. My cousin Marisol (see post back in Aug/Sept) was back in town with us for a few weeks, and it was nice to have her spend Thanksgiving with the whole gang.
The expectant parents. Isaiah is due early April! CAN'T WAIT!
Side view of Gera, who it has been really great to see more often this year.
Adam & Shirley
Tia Amparo & Tio Fernando (this one's for you, Nelly!)

My aunt and uncle think Vero (middle) and I look a lot a like..I kinda see it -what do you think?
...and a pic with Crystal jumping in - and two shots of Paige!
Lila made her way to the front room to entertain the kiddos... we decided to do a little photo shoot :)

Absolutely adorable!

May you have a desire for purity...

2 Corinthians 7:1
Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
