Updated Reading List

I have to apologize. I have not kept my reading widget updated (on the right side of blog page). It is updated now and reviews of the books that are no longer on the list because I finished them will follow over the next several days. Sorry about the delay.

Free Furniture

We are still really having a great time with the Wii that the kids got for Christmas. We decided tonight that we are getting rid of our living room furniture so we will have more room to play. If you are interested in any of the pieces, just post a comment. We are willing to trade the whole group for a second wii controller. We are tired of swapping controllers. We could also use ice packs, ace bandages, and any emergency room connections you might have.

A Few Pics from our Trip So Far

This is where the day starts with a little reading, thinking and conversation with God:

This is the view from there:

This is my spot on the beach (a little more reading, zune, and playing with the kids):

Wow Wii!!!

We had a great Christmas morning at the Mashburn house. Melissa and I were fortunate enough to score a Nintendo Wii for the kids this year. They had no idea we got it and were so excited Bailey actually screamed when they opened it. The fun did not stop there, though.

I used to be a big gamer as a kid but have never been very interested in video games as an adult. The Wii will change all that. What an amazing game system. The way you actually act out the motions to play the games is amazing. I got so tired from playing that I actually was wishing there was a game you can play sitting in your chair.

I also think I rediscovered some old sports injuries. I think I will actually be sore in the morning.

We got to Marco Island tonight (and brought the Wii). We are looking forward to some beach and wii time over the next few days.

Going to bed with sore elbows,

Merry Christmas

Hi Everybody,

I know it has been a while since my last post. I will be back soon, but I wanted to pop on tonight and wish everybody a Merry Christmas.

Tonight we went to Christmas Eve Services and then watched "The Nativity Story" together. We are off to Marco Island tomorrow after the gift opening festivities in the morning. I am sure that will provoke some blogging.

See you all soon.

Merry Christmas,

We Are The Champions!

Sorry it has been almost a week since my last post. I have started my new company/job. More on that later. First, I want to share some exciting news.
Five years ago, myself and Sammy Waller started a softball league at Flamingo Road Church. It started with about 120 guys playing on 8 teams. Since then we have played 7 seasons (twice a year for 2 of those years) and this year we had 16 teams with about 250 guys playing. I have seen a lot of guys get connected to church and God through the league.
Since the beginning, I have had good teams and bad teams, but never won a championship. This year, that all changed. Last Thursday night, we won the championship. It was a great night and something I have been waiting for. We all celebrated and had a great time. Here is a pic of the team with the monster trophy:
Sorry about the quality, it was taken by my son with his camera phone.
I just wanted to post this to say thanks to all the guys that have played with me throughout the years and to celebrate success.
