Cheering for the Falcons, hoping they can pull off the W!
We are big Atlanta Falcons fans. Zack and I both grew up cheering for them (particularly in the era of Steve Bartkowski!).
We just had to find a place to watch their playoff game last Sunday. But we’ve discovered this to be a tough thing to do here when you have kids in tow – restaurants here that have bars don’t usually allow kids. But after a bit of wandering, we found a place downtown to watch.
A 1:00 east coast start means a 10:00 brunch for us! We enjoyed a nice meal while watching with lots of Seattle fans. Thankfully, our team came out on top! (Despite almost giving it away in the second half!)
We are looking forward to another game – and win – this weekend!
We won’t be leaving for Norway on January 26 like we had originally thought. We are still waiting for our immigration approval and it looks like it could still be a little while.
So we are going to be spending a bit more time in Vancouver. Not what we expected, but also not a surprise to God! We look forward to seeing what He has in store as we wait on next steps.
Here are some recent photos…

That evening, we opened a few packages we had received in the mail, and opened gifts via FaceTime with some of our family. Then we had dinner at our local Indian restaurant – delicious!

Christmas morning was filled with gifts, the reading of the Christmas story, FaceTime & Skype calls with family, and a big breakfast.

|Big hugs for thoughtful gifts – sweet brothers!|
We hosted 8 others in our home for a big Christmas lunch. It was a wonderful time of food and friends: a great way to spend our first non-US Christmas Day!
