It didn't taste good


This morning when I was brushing my teeth I accidently put my face wash on my toothbrush instead of my toothpaste.

I didn't even realize what I had done until I put it in my mouth and realize it had a horrible very unexpected taste. I wouldn't recommend it.
Amanda Update: She definitely did a real good number on her nose. She has to have surgery tomorrow to repair it. She's handling it very well but she'll be sore for a while.

Poor Dandy-Mandy

Last night I called home and my Dad answered. After recognizing it was me he asked "Do you need any help?"

I responded no, I was fine..."Well Amanda does...we think she broke her nose."

Amanda wiped out face-first last night on concrete shed floor. She had parked her car in the shed and was running out to beat the garage door. She went to hop over a puddle...hit some ice and...


Right on her face. Wasn't able to catch herself at all. (She thinks she probably had her hands in her coat pocket because it was cold but she really doesn't remember.)

Story goes, she came in gushing blood and in a lot of pain. They were able to pack her nose, give her a pain killer and then took her to the ER.

She has an appointment with an ear, nose, and throat doctor today to see if she needs to have any surgery to fix her nose. Dad says you don't need to be a radiologist to see that it is broken in the X-ray. It will just depend on how it will heal if they leave it alone.

Amanda isn't feeling too pretty right now....

So you can appreciate what she really looks like. Here is Amanda with me at the Valdosta Airport, after her visit last summer.

Feel better soon Amanda!

Our Friend FJ

Mark and I have a dear friend here in Thomasville, FJ. Mark met FJ in the Wal-Mart parking lot sometime in the summer of 2005. Mark had just got off work from 2nd shift and was stopping by for groceries. Well he talked to FJ for a bit in the parking let and they ended up getting coffee at the Waffle House. He has been a friend every since.

He did the fabulous food at our rehersal dinner and was in Matthew's wedding. He is now managing a restuarant here in town, in addition to his catering business. He is a really neat guy and we feel blessed to know him.

We are going to try out the new restaurant tomorrow night probably. I bet it will be great!

With all the young brothers and sisters-in-law I have, going to the Lindberg house is always fun. Here are some fun pictures.

This is Hannah and Rachel playing horse. Rachel uses Hannah's hair for reigns.

A fun Lindberg Pryamid.

North Florida Fair

A couple of months ago, Mark & I along with Matthew and Renae went to the North Florida Fair. I normally think of fair-time being in July or August but those months are so miserably hot here, they wait until November to have many of these events. It made for a very comfortable evening.

We walked around looking at animals and various shows. I enjoyed watching the 4-H goat showing but my comarades were less impressed. Here are some pictures from our outing.

Below is a water buffalo. The veggie tales song comes to mind... They had a large display of various unique animals. It also included things like a zdonk (zebra-donkey mix). Very interesting.

Here is Matthew and Renae looking at...well I don't remember what.

Mark "milking a cow" :)

Mark and I sharing a turkey leg. I love these things. It is very carnivorous, I know.

Sunday Morning

For the mornings Mark and I are here in Thomasville, we have a very efficient routine. When we wake up I head straight to the shower and Mark makes breakfast. He does things like eggs & bacon or biscuits & gravy. Here is a picture of his biscuits and gravy. Isn't he romantic with the heart biscuits?

This system works well as it takes me notably longer than him to get ready in the morning. It helps prevent us being late to church :). The Mennonite Church here does have a Sunday School for everyone before church. I am very blessed by the ladies class, so we make an extra effort to attend.

Without the help of my honey...well we do like cereal.
