More Christmas in Mobile

It's great being in Mobile for Christmas. Ryan and I went Christmas caroling with some friends from my old church last night. And we laughed until we hurt until late in the night.

If you are ever in Mobile, make sure to drop into the Dew Drop Inn. Keep it simple and order the Dew Drop hot dog or the Dew Drop cheeseburger. And top it off with the banana pudding. We saw half of the Hayes family there. On your way home, stop at Old Dutch for some ice cream. We skipped it this time because we have so many pies at home, but it was tempting.

Later tonight, we dropped by the local Christian bookstore to get a little work done and ran into one of my oldest friends and favorite artists, Jan Horton. She is primarily a children's portrait photographer and muralist. Check out her stuff. Jan and I have been trying to connect all week, but the Christmas Fates ignored our calendars and pushed us together. It was awesome to catch up.

Now, I've pulled on the snowflake flannel pants and ready to settle down. I'll spend the remainder of the night overseeing the shooting up of the turkey, watching Christmas movies, and tracking Santa's progress.
