Christmas Preparations

The tree is full! We are ready ready ready for Christmas!!!

I decided to take a few of my favorite shots from our Europe trip and hang them up. I was so proud of myself as I did the whole process myself (except for Noah getting the nails straight) from taking the pictures, editing them in photoshop, making the enlargements, mounting them, and painting and sanding the frames. They're hanging in out kitchen now...the framed photos are below so you can see them better.

Flight Update...

I just thought I'd update the family on my flight progress. On Friday I took the FAA written knowledge exam for my commercial helicopter pilot license. I passed with a 91% (a few airplane questions tricked me, those darn airplanes!) I'm pleased with my test score and on my overall midterms I scored a 98% getting only one question wrong. Once I re-read the question I realized I had answered it to fast so I should have scored a 100%. I'm at the top of my class right now and on schedule to be graduating sometime in March most likely. I started flying the R44 (4 seater chopper - Shown above) this week to begin working on my instrument rating. It's been a lot of fun learning to fly without ever looking out the windows...all instruments only! Pretty crazy! I'll let you know how it goes as I continue progressing. Love you all! - Noah

How much is that doggy in the window?

For real, people, how can you resist? If you don't have a yard (like me) I understand, but look at them! Please tell anyone you know who might be interested about these little guys and girls. They are so sweet! I got a puppy for Christmas one year and I loved it! Best Christmas present ever...
