Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Grandma's Daddy

By Nicolle:
My Mom has gray hair. Clara calls her "Gi-Gi." Whenever she sees someone with gray hair, she points at them and says, "Gi-Gi." Also, whenever we see someone who looks around the same age as her grandparents- male or female- (but without gray hair), she points and says, "Grandma." She isn't subtle about this, by the way, and some people might think it rude. Well, today she saw an elderly man (probably in his 80's). She pointed and shouted "Grandma's Daddy." Hilarious.

NC Zoo

This last weekend, we went to the Asheboro zoo. Clara could not wait to see the lions and was willing to let anyone know what a lion sounded like.

First we saw the alligators. Clara liked them, but Nicolle and Greg were a bit paranoid for a while, thinking everything that moved was an alligator.
A Gorilla walked right up to Clara (with only a glass window between them) - she was half excited and half terrified.
Clara enjoyed seeing the animals and has been talking about them ever since.

Get Well, Soon!

By Nicolle:I'm feeling grateful. My best girlfriend just recently found out the reason behind the myriad of health problems that have been plaguing her for the last several years. She found the diagnosis herself, by doing research online, after hundreds of doctors/tests/and treatments had proven ineffective. Way to go, Trin! The best news is there is one surgery that should fix all of the problems. Surgery was today, and I hear it went well. Here we are in choir at Belmont University, where we got to know each other 11 years ago.
I was new and shy. Trinity was outgoing and made me feel welcome. We became fast friends and had tons of fun working on projects and studying (okay mostly laughing late into the night) together. We knew we'd be each other's maids of honor, before we even knew who we would marry.

Love you, Trin! Thanks for being such a great friend. Get well, soon.

Winter Wonderland

On Monday, Greensboro got a massive winter storm. School was canceled for a month, Roofs caved in due to the weight of the giant snowfall, Doors could not open because of the snow blocking the doors and Greg's job had a two hour delay (I didn't know work had 2 hour delays, I thought that was just school). Greensboro received 5 huge, mind blowing, crippling INCHES of snow.
Being from New York, when I hear Snowstorm, I imagine measurement in feet, not inches so when the normal NC Winter Storm Warning comes up, I get excited until I hear that 1 inch may be possible. This was the most it has snowed since we have lived in NC.

Clara had a blast in the snow.
She got to go sledding for the first time.

She did some snow angels with her Dad

She even got to hang out with a snowman and sing the Snowman song.
She was sad however, because she was unable to get to class due to her car being snowed in.

Overall we had lots of fun and by Thursday it was in the 60's and all the snow was gone.
