Random Kinds of Factness

A completely random and useless (though still blogworthy) piece of information about Brett and I is the fact that we love to collect ornaments. We collect new ones every year. We like ornaments of places we have been, we get an "Our Christmas Together" ornament every year, and most recently we started collecting chiropractic ornaments. We have decided to get a chiropractic ornament for every year we are at Palmer. Last year's was a snowman couple holding a heart that said "Chiropractic Christmas." This year, what better way to celebrate the season than with a snowman caduceus?

A Funny From Outback

While at dinner at Outback this evening, Brett and I were amused by the sentiment on this coaster:
Its times like these when I'm glad I have a blog... and a camera. :-)

Happy Birthday

I had a very fun 22nd birthday. It snowed which was exciting. It was the perfect kind of snow: the kind that falls and looks pretty but melts as soon as it hits the ground. We had dinner at a restaurant called Granite City which we had been wanting to try for a long time. It is a restaurant/brewery with a very nice atmosphere. I would recommend it to anyone who has been thinking about trying it. Other than that we pretty much just hung out around the house, which was nice to do too. Here are some pictures from the day:

Tree Hunting

The Friday after Thanksgiving is our traditional Christmas decorating day. We went to the same tree farm we went to last year to cut down our tree.

I'm Dreaming of a White...Thanksgiving???

We had our first taste of winter Wednesday night. Snow fell for a good portion of the evening, but due to ground temperatures being so high, not much of it stuck around. We did see a little evidence of winter on it's way when we went to cut down our Christmas tree yesterday:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Even though we were not able to be back in San Diego for Thanksgiving we still had a pretty good day. We went down to our neighbor's house for dinner, but being big fans of leftover Thanksgiving food, we decided to do our own Thanksgiving at home first. Here are some pictures from our day:

Some things never change, but I think my fingers may have gotten a little bigger:

Well, I may have spoken too soon about our bowling team kicking butt. We got our butts kicked last week on bowling night. The guys we played bowled multiple turkeys each game, which was certainly difficult to compete with. Although, according to the score board our team won because the guys we played were not so smart and deleted their handicap. In an effort to keep things on the up and up we let them count their handicap on their total score and we got totally clobbered. Better luck next week. Fortunately for us, one of our team-mates has a good friend who is a semi-professional bowler. He will be giving us pointers when we practice next week.

I realized today that I have been a little bit of a slacker when it comes to the blog posts, so I thought that I would update you on what's been going on lately.

1.) My knee. As many of you know I injured my knee recently. Not terribly, but bad enough that I couldn't walk on it for a few days. I am happy to report that I am walking much better now. Luckily, I now work for a chiropractor (see #2) and she is working to make sure that my knee recovers. Just for fun, I thought I would post the picture above. Through the magic of digital x-ray, that is actually MY knee that you are looking at. Pretty cool, huh?

2.) My job. This is my third week working at my new job. I landed my dream job (with pretty decent pay, too) in Durant, which is about 20 miles west of here. The only downside of the job is the fact that it is 20 miles away, but I figure if that's the only downside I am pretty lucky.

3.) Bowling. Palmer League bowling began last week. Every Thursday night from now through early next year we can be found at the bowling alley. Last week our team did pretty well. We won, and our team score was into the 500's for all three games, while most other teams were only in the 300's. It looks like it is going to be a pretty good bowling "season" (is that what you call it when it's bowling?). I plan on taking some pictures tonight, so hopefully I will have those posted in the next couple of days.
