a super sunday

Don't have much time but I wanted to put up a couple quick pictures from our Superbowl party yesterday. We had it in our pastor's office, because he has a projector, therefore, a big screen. A pretty view of the back section of our church's campus (as the office is on the fifth floor). The circle building is where Brent works!

I think we slightly overshot the foot, but it was a good, random assortment. Crab rangoon, mini runzas, party bread, a couple desserts, some chips and dip, some apples and dip...etc! It was great. We all ate a little too much, stayed up just a little too late (11 oclock on a school night!?), and had a lot of fun (despite that Arizona, and Warner, lost).

One weird thing though...our friend Meagan's hands turned blue! We're not sure why or what or ??? But they were definitely blue all day yesterday. I don't know if you can really tell in this picture, but have any of you heard of this before?
Unfortunately/fortunately, whichever way you want to look at it, I was back to work today. And boy was it hard to get back in the swing of things- for me and the kids! A handful of my students still don't have power though.

Tonight I'm going to whip up something for supper really quickly and then settle in for a new Jon and Kate Plus 8!

Kels,
I have heard of this - ask me about it sometime. Anyway, it could be Raynaud's Disease or Syndrome. Here is a brief description: "Raynaud's disease is a rare disorder of the blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes. People with this disorder have attacks that cause the blood vessels to narrow. When this happens, blood can't get to the surface of the skin and the affected areas turn white and blue. When the blood flow returns, the skin turns red and throbs or tingles. In severe cases, loss of blood flow can cause sores or tissue death. Cold weather and stress can trigger attacks. Often the cause of Raynaud's is not known. People in colder climates are more likely to develop Raynaud's than people in warmer areas. Treatment for Raynaud's may include drugs to keep the blood vessels open. There are also simple things you can do yourself, such as 1. Soaking hands in warm water at the first sign of an attack; 2. Keeping your hands and feet warm in cold weather.

Look it up for a more complete description.
Love,
A.L.
