"Since incorporating in 2006, the Texas Ramp Project has built more than 3,338 safe, durable ramps across the state."
I'm proud to be a member of a team that does so in Kyle, Texas.
In December, The Fellowship of Plum Creek did a fantastic thing, they put on a "Night In Bethlehem" which took people on a journey of the birth of Christ.
VERY interesting and I learned a few things I didn't kow. My favorite part was the scene where the Innkeeper was saying "No Room At The Inn" but wasn't a mean guy... he was a frustrated business owner... "Why are so many people coming here... I have to turn you away... I don't know... No Room.."
Happy new year. I swear I'll try and post more in 2013. I've been busy with work, kids, church, and life.... but that's not an excuse.
I have been continuing to take a bunch of photos in Kyle.... I've just not posted them very often.
So... let's start this year.
This is my chiminea... I bought it a year ago because I always wanted one, but the problem with Kyle is... well... it doesn't get cold too often. When it does, I bought some fire logs... and they last like 5 hours.
So.. in order to enjoy this, it has to be cold and I have to want to hang outside for 5 hours. Not something that happens very often with a 5 and 8 year old.
I really didn't think this one through... but it's really enjoyable when it's on... and we've rosted marshmellows a few times too.
Chiminea is Spanish for "fireplace or chimney" and they are used outdoors.
