I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Texas with one of my favorite people in the whole world - my friend, Diana! She flew in to San Antonio following my conference and we spent a couple of days with my sister, Jo, and her husband, exploring San Antonio. We even got to see the biggest pair of cowboy boots in the WORLD! :)
Then we took off on an adventure and spent the next few days on South Padre Island enjoying the beach and the sand and the hot tub - even when it was freezing outside!
We even walked in to Mexico for a little shopping and a delicious margarita. We came back to San Antonio just in time to have leftover thanksgiving dinner with my sister which she has generously spent the day cooking. It was a great Thanksgiving week with family and friends!!

I attended the first annual Presbyterian Youth Workers Association Conference in November in San Antonio, Texas. It was a great week to catch up with old friends from PSCE and to spend time with fellow youth workers from the Kansas City area. We had wonderful worship led by Aimee & Bill Buchanan (friends from PSCE) as well as Bible study led by Jon Brown. I am looking forward to the next conference (Nov. 2008) in New Orleans where we will also get to spend a day volunteering - which is something I love most!
