We were able to spend our last day in Wisconsin visiting some of our “old” favorites. Places that hold many happy memories from the dating days. We ate dinner at Liesl’s favorite french cafe, Trocadero. Complete with a gruyere cheese plate, mussels, smoked salmon crepe, and finished off with a cup of coffee which they serve with an adorable little dark chocolate square and personal cube of sugar.

Spent the night down on Old World 3rd Street and woke up to the winds howling at -25 degrees below zero! We still ventured out to Milwaukee Public Market where we picked up breakfast a fresh fruit and yogurt parfait and two hot coffees from the Cedarburg Coffee Roasters. We were also able to pick up some yummy snacks for the road at a couple of the other vendors, including chocolate hazelnut biscotti! Yum!!

Afterwards we hit the road to head back to Missouri and the Missionary Training Center. We will have a little to unpack and then it’s Linguistics class welcomed by Pete on Monday the 19th! We’re ready for another year, seeing what awesome things the Lord is going to do.

Winter Break

  Our Christmas and most of our winter break was spent traveling from Waukesha to Baraboo, WI and then back and forth, and back and forth a few times. This was of course, our best effort to spend the most time possible with both families, with friends in both areas, and with our home church Walnut Hill Bible and cultivate the relationships we have established there. We enjoyed seeing all of you, it was good to be home. Not only was it good to be home, but it was a great time of re-connection, and even though there was alot of traveling we were able to refresh and set goals for this next semester.
Christmas Eve morning included brunch at Kathy Heidemann's home just a few houses down from Pete family.

Brunch was fabulous! Not only is Kathy a great cook, but she's an even more wonderful friend and prayer warrior for us.

There was wonderful company at brunch, Kathy, the Hypkis, and Kathy's two cats Belle and Reggie. Here I am found squeezing Belle.

After attending the Christmas Eve service with the Hypkis all the Hypki girls rolled their sleeves up in the kitchen to cook the evening meal.

On Saturday night after Christmas we had a small birthday party for my sister-in-law Lindsey, and everyone was able to come. Madeline enjoyed all the attention especially playing with Uncle Jay.

Christmas Day we drove up to the Muscaneros and the whole brood was there. Pete holds our nephew Mason in this photo, he's 6 months old and squeezes like a little teddy bear.

 As we prepare to travel back to Missouri on Jan. 15th we are excited and in anticipation of what the Lord is going to do in our lives in the next few months. He has been so faithful through so many of you, and we are blessed beyond measure. Especially our families, we love you guys!

Happy 2009 to you all! May it be a year to remember, a year of smiles and laughter, a year of things learned and people loved, a year of new experiences, and a year of refreshment.
