Fun time at HuHot and shopping with my hunny

This Saturaday, we spent some time in Des Moines with my wife and some friends on a hot date to HuHot and other fun places. Even shopping wasn't torture. Glad to get away from the kids and spend some lovey time. HuHot was good as always and I was very full of spicy stir fry. Our friends from Oklahoma, Tina and Joseph, surprised us by driving all the way here. They didn't bring the 50-degrees with them. Oh well, winter will be over eventually. Al Gore promised.

Hebrews 10

Isn't it awesome how one sacrifice of one perfect man can bring all humans that are full of sin back to a perfect God who holds the entire universe in His hand.

Nascar 2010 predictions

Since I'm in the itch for spring fishing and Nascar. Nascar comes first, in February.

Here are some predictions to make the chase this year:
Jimmie Johnson
Mark Martin
Jeff Gordon
Tony Stewart
Kurt Busch
Kyle Busch
Matt Kenseth
Clint Bowyer
Joan Montoya
Greg Biffle
Carl Edwards
Ryan Newman

This is not in order, but I don't predict Johnson to win the fifth championship in a row.

Three dark horses that may surprise us
1. David Reutiman
2. Joey Logano
3. Kevin Harvick

Junior will finish 14th to 19th somewhere.

Fog and more fog.

When is the fog going away. Maybe when the ice comes.

New puppy, not enough time to do this blog right

My family got a new puppy today from a animal care facility in Des Moines. Not my idea, but that is what we have. He is a mini pincher, black, and is fun. Cute, and good natured. Alexis and mommy love him to pieces.

Goals for 2009 and 2010

Well for 2010 I don't need new goals because I failed to accomplish most of my 2009 goals. I want to do better, but it is difficult. I want to be a better Christian, better father, and more dedicated and loving husband. Praise by to God that I have this chance.

Merry Christmas 2009

After a long and crazy year for me, we should all rejoice in the Christ who came to save us, coming as a simple baby to remind us of His humanity and love for us. God bless your 2010.

Big snowstorm

This week we had 12" of snow followed by 40 MPH northwest winds. About 5-below zero last night and 10 above today. Drifts as tall as 6 feet here and there and along some large buildings over 12 feet I saw yesterday before. We'll have a white Christmas. Only six months until Summer.
