Christmas Tour - Day 1


It is finally time for another Christmas Tour! Its been a long day, but its not over yet!
We woke up and started the long drive at around 5:30 am and arrived in "H-Town" at 5:40 pm. I spent the whole day stuck in a car with my parents and 4 younger siblings. Oh joy! I passed the time reading, day dreaming and sleeping. Pretty much killing time. Some random things...
Favorite sight of the day...

My favorite sight of the day has to be a tie between seeing this...

We saw this 18-wheeler from N. Carolina with its top covered in snow. Its probably the most snow I will see this Christmas!
...and this!

Finally crossing into Texas!!!

On my iPOD play list (because, who can survive travel without their iPOD these days!)...

* Casting Crown's newest CD - My favorite song so far is called "If We've Ever Needed You" which talks about how much our world needs Jesus Christ!

*Steven Curtis Chapman's new CD, Beauty Will Rise - He has written these songs over the past year following the death of his baby girl Maria. His steadfast faith in the Lord is evident all over this record! Such an encouragement!

You need to download this song - "Your Love is Better Than Life" by Fee

My good read of the day...

"A Million Miles in a Thousand Years" by Donald Miller - This book is a reminder of how our lives are a small part of God's Story. I highly recommend it; its a very fun read. Miller is an interesting person, which makes for an interesting story!

Best end to the day?

A perfect Texas sunset and my mawmaw's fudge on arrival to her house! yay!

Just a thought...

You know you have been in the car for a long time when you get to observe both the day's sun rise and a sun set! lol

WOW!! Sounds like a long trip. At least the drive down was good, even if you did see the sunrise and sunset!! Hope you have a Merry CHRISTmas!!

Glad y'all arrived safe & sound. And I love Donald Miller.

That Barbie the babysitter thing on your sidebar is adorable. You know I love retro stuff like that! :)
