for my dad

so my dad told me over Christmas that i don't keep my blog up to date enough...so here you go dad, this one's for you!

Christmas was wonderful, as it always is. crystal and i had to run around from place to place like we do every year, and that includes making it to 5 Christmas' and still we missed going to one on crystal's dad's side of the family. it's great having both of our families in the same town so we can see them all each time we go home, but we also feel like everyone is getting just a little bit of our time as well. so it's always hard to decide how and where we are going to spend our time in parsons.

on the gift side of things, my mom and dad got me an awesome tool package for one of my gifts and it's a craftsman cordless drill, trim saw, flashlight and dust buster vacuum. super sweet, i'd been looking at buying one of these for a while but just couldn't justify the purchase because my old boss (a contractor) had all these tools i could borrow. but now i don't work for him anymore and this was a perfect gift. thanks dad! being a craftsman member through sears is definitely a sweet deal!

in other news matt and steph, marv, charlie, wiggins, jed, tom, myself and anyone else who happens to stumble in have been hard at work on the new shop. we've managed to tear down all the old drop ceiling and expose the even "older" (but completely beautiful) original metal tile ceiling. we're going to try and get it painted on saturday and we can't wait to see how it turns out. also we tore out all the old shelving that was there for all the shoes and that took us over a week to disassemble everything and either pull the nails to keep the lumber or throw it out because it wasn't salvageable. big time thank you to everyone that is throwing in their helping hand, we certainly wouldn't be this far along without you, and i just hope that everything keeps going as smoothly as it has been.

well crystal has already headed to the bedroom to rest her head, so i'm going to follow. somehow we fell across an open wireless network so we watched "prep & landing" on hulu tonight. it was totally awesome, you should check it out if you have an extra 25 minutes or so. on the riding side of things not much is happening right now, and i seriously need to hit the trainer, but i'm so bored of being inside just in general that it just doesn't sound like much fun. i hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. see you soon.
