Happy Holidays!

I know, it's been forever since I posted. And I probably won't post again until sometime in January. We're just busy with family and holiday stuff, and not much is going on music-wise to report. 

Here's an update on Ruby Sue (our Subaru), since I kind of left you hanging on that story. She was totaled. It's a bit sad, after having driven her for 10 years and 231,000 miles. But after all she's only a car. We're just glad nobody was hurt in the accident. 

Our insurance could only pay out a couple of thousand for such a used vehicle. Luckily my parents were able to help us out with an interest-free loan. We are now driving a brand new Toyota RAV-4.

We might have replaced Ruby Sue with another Legacy wagon, but Subaru isn't making them anymore! Their closest option is a smaller car, which just wouldn't have worked for us. The RAV-4 is definitely bigger. We're still getting used to riding so high up off the road!

We've been decorating trees, wrapping gifts, and watching Christmas specials on DVD. Evalyn's 1st grade class had their Christmas party Thursday and Lisa and I were there to help (see photo at top).

I also thought I'd share our bedroom door with you. Evalyn has decorated it with the word "Love" which I think sums up what Christmas is all about. So Merry Christmas, and much love from us to you!

P.S. Here's a little Christmas gift for you, if you don't have it already... Download the song "Santa's Laugh" right here:

Sugar Free Allstars

This past Sunday we drove to Edmond to see the Sugar Free Allstars program at the library. Here's Dr. Rock on the drums:
Chris Wiser on vocals and organ:

We had fun at the concert and a great talk with the guys afterwards. Check out their debut CD for kids, Dos Ninos, which includes their XM Kids number one hit, "Bathtub Boy!"

In other news, Ruby Sue, our Subaru, which we drove for ten years and 231,000 miles, was totaled in the accident. (See the previous entry - nobody was hurt.) So Lisa and I have spent the last few days shopping for a replacement. We've got it narrowed down to two, but it's a tough choice!
