Wheeeeeeeew Weeeeeeeeeee! The past 12 days have gone by in a flash! My time with Brian in the Dominican was wonderful, but too short. In fact, I was unprepared for how hard it would be to leave him, on Christmas Day at that. But once I got to the airport it was hectic and stressful, so there was no time for tearful goodbyes. Here are a few pictures from my time there.

Cows were everywhere around our hotel!

Here I am hanging out at the hotel pool one afternoon after Brian left for the game.

Brian and I after a game. It was so humid I had to wear a hat to tame my frizzed out hair!

The mountains were pretty! This photo was taken from the back seat of a car when we were on our way to the Sun Village Resort and Spa:

A few pictures from our time at the resort:

This giant lizard, or whatever it was, was made out of bread! The Christmas Eve dinner was delicious!

At the show on Christmas Eve, Brian was dragged up on stage to participate in a dancing competition! It was pretty funny!

Resort on the Beach . . . here we come!

Starting tomorrow, Brian and I have the privilege of vacationing at the Sun Village Resort and Spa in Puerto Plata!! Brian has the next 4 days off so we're taking advantage of those four days as well as the fact that we're in warm place with beautiful beaches. This little vacation is our Christmas present to each other. It's a little unconventional to spend Christmas this way, but if you have to be away from family I guess it's the next best thing! We'll suffer through it ;)

A New Bed!

I am sooooooooooooooooo excited about our new mattress and box springs that's being delivered this Tuesday! These are our Christmas presents from Mom and Dad. THANK YOU Mom and Dad!

I'm so excited about this gift because it will be a huge upgrade from our current, extremely loud and squeaky, too firm, queen size bed. Not that I'm complaining, I'm very grateful to have had that bed. However, I'll be happier when I don't wake up in the middle of the night every time Brian goes to the bathroom! (Not that I have to deal with that right now anyway since he's in the Dominican Republic.) Speaking of which, I fly down to see him this Wednesday! Hopefully I'll have some cool pictures to post on the blog soon!

On the Road Again, Just Can't Wait to Get on the Road Again . . .

Brian got a call a few days ago from a team in the Dominican Republic. They want him to come down and pitch for the remainder of the season and into the playoffs. We're very excited about this opportunity! The only sad part is that Brian will miss Christmas :( At least I'll get to fly down on December 18 and stay through Christmas Eve.

The team is actually called the San Fransisco Giants, and they are located just outside of Santiago. Please pray for safe travels for Brian, that he would enjoy his time there, and that he would have the opportunity to demonstrate the love of Jesus to his new teammates.

Fun times are ahead!
