Not much to blog about...

Well... we're still alive. Just in survival mode for getting through this semester. I can't believe that in about 2 months we will be done at John Brown University! Well... sort of. It looks like I will have to finish up some online courses over the summer because of transferring and everything. But Thomas will be able to walk at graduation, at least :) I'll just put his cap and gown on and take pictures haha :)
We're super duper excited about graduation mainly because our families will be coming - yay! My dad and Thomas's parents and Grandma Driver will be here. I haven't seen either of my parents since we were in South Africa for our wedding in December 08, and we haven't seen Thomas's parents since last May at Robert's graduation from Wheaton College. Oh the joys of being missionary kids...
So right now we're just putting our heads down and pushing through to the end of the semester. We both have a lot going on. We're looking forward to Spring Break in three weeks - it looks like we'll  be going down to Texas with Thomas's cousin Ben and staying with his aunt and uncle and family :) I'm excited to see them, and I'm also excited for it to be WARM! Hopefully we'll get to go to the beach since they only live an hour or so away from the Gulf of Mexico.
Well, that's it for now... hopefully there will be some picture-worthy events in the near future so I can put some up on here!

Happy Valentine's Day!

We went out for dinner to the English Tea Room... I forgot to take the camera, but it was delicious and we had lots of fun and talked and laughed non-stop for two hours :)
We took some pictures when we came home...

Thomas and the card/poster I made for him :)


Sarah with the poster


It took us a few tries to get a good picture with both of us in it...



Then we switched sides and finally got a semi-decent one :)


Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We hope that your day was as full of love as ours :) And not just today, but every day of the year :)

A Walk in the Snow


After the big snow/ice storm was over, Thomas and I went for a walk and took lots of snow pictures. This was a week ago, and since then that snow has mostly melted. But right now it's snowing again!

These are some pictures from last week's snow

We took pictures with our snowman (or snow-woman) the morning after we made it.



Icicles hanging from our roof


Snow-laden trees on the path to JBU


The pathway 


Snowy field


Lonely little tree


I found some pretty blue berries in a frosty tree


Icy branches


Us on our walk


Thomas walking along the path back towards our house


Sarah in the middle of lots of snow


We found a snowman that someone built sitting on this bench


Our snowman/snow-woman from a distance... we built him/her in front of our friends' apartment, two doors down from our apartment. They had more snow :)


This was a few days later, when the snow had started melting


Looking very droopy!


Our snowman (woman) is still standing now, though the head is gone and half of the torso has melted too. There's more snow coming down right now, but not enough to build a snowman!
