There hasn't been too much going on in the Adams household lately, so there's not much to write about at the moment. Brian and I had a good Thanksgiving. On Thursday we went down to Spring Island, SC where my parents have bought a lot, and walked/ran in the annual Thanksgiving "Early Bird Chase" (5k). Mom and I walked it, while Brian decided at the last minute to run it. Probably not the smartest idea considering he hasn't run over 1 mile in years. You can imagine how sore he was after running 3.2! I have to give him credit though, he came in 4th place! Of course there were only about 35 people participating, but hey 4th place is still pretty good. He wasn't happy about the 15 year old kid that won first and beat him by a mile that's for sure. I think his quote from the weekend (when asked about the race) was, "Stupid kid." Oh the competitive side surfaces so unexpectedly sometimes doesn't it?
On Friday we went up to Charlotte to have our normal Thanksgiving meal with the whole family. We usually get together on the weekend because that's when everyone can make it. Here are a two fun pictures I took:
My little cousins climbing the tree just outside my aunt's house.
Mom working hard in the kitchen - what a face!
In other news, Brian is still unsure about what team he will play for when the season rolls around in the spring. He and/or his agent have talked with several teams, some are interested, others are not. What we're trying to remember is that if God wants Brian in baseball, then he will provide an opportunity with the right team. God has only one team in mind for Brian, and we have to wait patiently on Him to show us who that is. Please keep us in your prayers in that regard.
As the Christmas season begins I'm getting so excited. I love all the decorations, the lights, the holiday movies, the spirit of giving, the music, and of course it's all because of the most wonderful thing . . . Jesus' birth. Speaking of which, I really want to go see that movie "The Nativity." I saw the previews for it a couple of weeks ago and it looks good. I'm not sure when it's coming out, but if anyone sees it before I do, let me know how it is.
Guess I had more to write about than I thought . . .
