Christmas Activities

December 25, 2009, 11:43 am - James Farrer

So what did we do Christmas Eve? Last night after the kids went to bed my brother-in-law got out a couple of buckets of Legos and we all went to town building all sorts of stuff. Boats, planes, houses, cars, magical dungeon lair complete with escape route and escape vehicle. Definitely a fun family activity.

This morning was fun. The kids had fun opening presents and have been bouncing from toy to toy. For the most part they've been pretty good natured and pleasant about it all. It's been a nice relaxing holiday so far.

Dano's in Norway

December 15, 2009, 10:36 pm - James Farrer

After two months in the Mission Training Center my little brother just got to Norway. He's serving a mission there for our church. It's really cool. He's close enough to the part of the world that I served in that I think I've got a good idea what he's heading into. Except they are significantly more modern than the Baltics. It's all good though. I got to talk to him yesterday for a few minutes while he was in JFK airport on a layover. He was excited. It sure is tough going into a new country, culture, and language with only a couple of months preparation for it. 

I remember having no clue what everyone was saying for several weeks. Eventually it got better and I was later able to speak very comfortably with everyone there. It's been fun to go back through some of the pictures and think about and share some of the experiences that I had on my mission. I don't think I've ever met someone who was so excited to hear the stories. I'm excited for him. I'm sure it will be a great experience for him. 

I just got an email saying he'll be serving in Oslo. Awesome!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

December 8, 2009, 9:22 am - James Farrer

I went out this morning to go to work and there was 6 or 8 inches of snow in the street. I shovelled the driveway and as I was finishing a truck got stuck in front of my house. I tried to help get him out but with relatively bald tires the guy was pretty much out of luck. Even with another guy who stopped to help we were doing good to get him to the side of the road. Then I helped get the other guy who stopped to help going again. Just as I was about to head in another car got stuck. I got him moving again and am now trying to give it a little time before attempting it myself. A light, small, two wheel drive pickup is not the best thing for the snow. Oh well, it keeps life interesting.

Oh yeah, after last night and this morning the snow banks are four feet high and there was almost enough snow on the driveway to be worth shovelling again. Good day!
