Christmas Letter 2007
[ here's the four eleven of 2007 ]
Merry Christmas!! We hope you and your loved ones had a wonderful holiday together, celebrating the birthday of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
Time has gone by so quickly! We celebrated our one year anniversary in October by taking a 6 hour limo ride around the Dallas Fort Worth area. We stopped at various fun places around town and just enjoyed each others company without life's daily distractions. Marriage has been a wonderful and very easy transition to make. (Thanks to God working out so many kinks through the seven years prior to the big day .as well as having separate bathrooms!)
Kristy is in her last year of residency at John Peter Smith (yeah!) and is kept busy with the daily activities of running her own team. Go Green! Kristy's parents are so happy to see that those years as a cheerleader have really paid off and can still be put to use. Luckily there is never a dull moment, with plenty of surgeries and babies to deliver for everyone. Kristy is currently looking for a job in the Grapevine/Southlake area. Keep her in your prayers, that God will bless her with an amazing job, a group that shares the same values and beliefs, and a fat, fat paycheck!
Although Luke does miss his wife terribly (oh JPS, you harsh mistress) he somehow manages to stay quite busy (and sarcastic) as well. Luke is still working as the Web Administrator in the media department at The Urban Alternative. He has completely redesigned their websites (yey!) and was given the honor of Employee of the Year (go God). I, Kristy, think they are realizing that they are as lucky as I am to have Luke on their team. But the work day doesn't stop once he leaves the office. Luke spends countless hours practicing guitar, writing songs, and playing with his band Inner Frequency. Inner Frequency has had a successful year. They welcomed a new bass player into the group and played venues in Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, College Station and Austin. They even got to play the Taste of Addision in March, opening for the bands Lifehouse and Daughtry! If you get a chance check out their website, innerfrequency.com and come hear them play.
We are still living in Euless, TX and love our apartment! Thanks to Sara, it manages to stay clean despite our hectic schedule. God has blessed us with so many things and we are still trying to get organized. We are happy members at Gateway Church in Southlake, the biggest reason we want to stay in this area. However, we do like to travel (especially Kristy, who could be a professional vacationer) and enjoyed a week of skiing in Steamboat Springs last March and another week of 'fun in the sun' in southern CA with family & friends this past August.
We hope that this letter finds all of you doing well. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family & friends! Here's to a great 2007 and an even better 2008.
God Bless, Team Carnevale
