Goofin' Around

  The worst thing about Christmas Break is all the excess time that you have on your hands.  Not that I don't enjoy that fact because you sure can dispense of this time by doing bible quizzing, playing Xbox, being lazy, or possibly even playing a game with the family.  Last night we started a game of rook around 9:00 pm and got done with the same stinkin' game around mid-night.  If you looked at the score sheet you probably would have been surprised by how many times the game could have been over.  My dad and I won by scrapping for every single point possible.  On the winning hand if we would have lost another five points we would have gone set and played another hour.  But instead we were able to overcome the fact that we did not have the rook and the trump black one was captured with the rook.  This is simply Christmas Break.  Not many other times during the year would I tell you about a rook game, but this just happens to be the time.  When we finally accomplished the feat of finishing the game we looked outside and the ground was covered with a sheet of snow.  I hear that supposedly we are going to have a blizzard sometime this week before Christmas.  With the thought that we might be going to the mall pretty soon I must end this post, probably to your delight.  I have said it before and will say it again, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Great job on keeping your blog up to date, Jonathan! I haven't been as good about updating ours due to lack of time, but it is fun to read about all your happenings in Minot. We sure missed seeing you all for Christmas, but it sounds like you had a great time. Hope you have a Happy New Year!
Oh... and stay warm! I kinda want to go put a coat on after seeing all the snow pictures! Love you all!!!
