Dad and I were out playing on Leicester Square when we saw a crowd of people in front of the Odeon Theatre. We walked over to see what all the fuss was about and it just happened to be the World Premiere for It's a Boy Girl Thing. Just as we got there, guess who stepped out of his car - yep, Elton John! He's the Executive Producer. What a fun night! We stood there and watched Sting, Sharon Osborne, Kelly Osborne, Kevin Zegers and more walk up the red carpet. What a great city!
We have had a wonderful day in Oxford. We started with a C.S. Lewis tour where they showed us his home, his hangouts, his friends, etc. It was fun to walk in his footsteps and know about the man who's writings have had an impact on so many people's faith journey. He himself didn't become a Christian until later in life - when he was riding a bus up Headington Hill. :) It is pretty cold here today - there is frost on everything. This picture is in front of the Randolph Hotel which was seen in the movie Shadowlands.

It's great to be in London!! Think I'm a little blurry? That's the cider! :) The first week has been fabulous. We've walked all over the city, took a bus tour, day trip to Oxford for an Inspector Morse tour, went to the ceremony of the keys at the tower of London and went to church at All Souls on Regent Street. It has all been fabulous! We moved in to our flat on Sunday and that has been nice - just having a kitchen and our own rooms. Tomorrow it's back to Oxford. I'll add more highlights tomorrow.

We're off to London!! I flew to Dallas yesterday (Dec. 11) and spent some time with my good friends, the Lindberg's, in Mesquite, TX. We had a great dinner at Cane's and laughed a lot. This morning they brought me to DFW where I waited for the rest of the family. We are now waiting to board our plane for London. I can't believe this trip that we've talked about for 2 years is finally here. What a great way to spend Christmas!
