December 2005


Joy and I went to see “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe” (2005) tonight. Joy’s mom watched Charis so we could go out to dinner and the movie, which was a very nice treat.

I absolutely loved the Narnia books as a kid, so seeing the movie was very cool. We both really enjoyed it (even though Joy has never read the books). The CGI was a bit more noticeable that you’d want, but overall the story and presentation were great. Georgie Henley was perfectly amazing as Lucy. The sense of wonder she displayed was incredible and really drew you in. I hope they make movies for more of the books, because I will definitely go see them if they do.

This morning I was sitting in the den orgainzing some books on the shelf and Joy had just finished feeding Charis in the dining room. She brought Charis into the den to see me and Charis reached out her arms for me to take her. I did, and then she put her arms around my neck and said “da-da” with a big smile on her face. Can I even begin to tell you how cool that was?

Joy and I spent the day packing up all of the Christmas decorations around our house. No, we aren’t scrooges, but with a baby in the house and quite a few new toys, we need our floor space back!

While I was packing away the Christmas stuff in the attic, I also rearranged things up there to make room for a few boxes of Charis’s clothes that don’t fit anymore, plus her infant car seat and a bouncy seat that she doesn’t fit in anymore. This is the first time we’ve really put some of her stuff into “storage”, and it was kind of weird because I guess it means Charis is growing up.

I turn 30 years old today. It’s kind of strange turning 30 and having my first child all in the same year (it makes me feel old!). But I am incredibly blessed with a gracious wife, a sweet new daughter, and wonderful friends and family. I praise the Lord for the 30 years he has given me so far, and I look forward to many more to come.

I found a fun link yesterday and I went to post it to del.icio.us and discovered that the site was down for emergency maintenance. It appears they had a power failure last week that caused curruption on some of their RAIDs. Up until now I thought I was just a casual del.icio.us user, but it appears I may be addicted. What to do with my new link? I actually had to create bookmarks in my web browser (something I almost never do anymore), and I will transfer them to del.icio.us as soon as it comes back up. Best of luck to Joshua and everyone else at del.icio.us as they try to get things running again. I didn’t know how much I relied on their site until today.
