His favorite candy, a movie (three actually all three x-men in one), books (I found 1776 at Goodwill for $3.99 and couldn't pass it up. We both have been wanting to read it for awhile, so it's really a gift for both of us. and The Odyssey, Chris wants to read, also a Goodwill buy for $0.99), and chapstick because he was running low.
I did make him go on a little hunt for it. I decided to have him look for it Saturday night so we could watch one of the movies and also because Sunday we were going to have a busy day.
Currently Chris's sister is at a rehab. center in Carrabelle so as a family we all went down to visit her and we brought dinner with us too. His sister is only like 33 or 35 and this place is kind of a old folks home so she had some good stories to tell us. Hopefully she won't be there much longer.
Last Sunday we attended the funeral for Chris's grandfather. It was a really nice service. He died at the age of 88 and lived a long full life. It was great to see all of Chris's extended family again. His family has a family cemetery out in Wakulla county and so we are excited to go back to possibly get some rubbings of the tomb stones for family history. We also recently received some great family pictures as well. FYI, if you haven't been to a Missionary Baptist Church funeral it is pretty awesome. I'm not going to lie I have never felt the spirit as strong and any other church thing outside of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It's really a great experience. The music is by far my favorite part.
Well, ONE MORE WEEK and I'm done with this semester!!! I'm so ready for a break and I have lots of plans to fill my time. The most exciting thing that has occurred lately is Chris's new job. He will be a sales manager at the Four Points Sheraton. For those living in the Tallahassee area it's the old Holiday Inn round building off Tennessee Street. This has been just an amazing blessing in our lives. Chris is going to be going back to school for his MBA and his current job's hours would not work with school time and this new job will definitely help him to be able to focus on school. Here's a picture of the building. Sales is very much up Chris's alley so we're excited for the move and change. The Lord truly has blessed and has been looking out for us.
