The Delp Details

Saturday we got MORE snow here in Chicago with a mix of sleet and stuff too. The pups were amazed at the golf ball size snow flakes. I tried to get some pictures of them enjoying it, but they are really quick! If only dogs could make snow angels!

New Hair Color

Kind of a goofy thing to post about, but I have been wanting to do something new with my hair-keep it sassy ya know! Well, today I went to see Michelle (not like you would normally say it). MI-Chelle. He is a very good stylist, although expensive! WOW! Anyway, I didn't really specifiy what I wanted, but I thought it went pretty well. I don't know how well the pictures show it, but the top of my hair is a light brown, which in certain light looks more strawberry blonde. The bottom is a very deep dark brown. It looks pretty cool! He also layered it and styled it. It was a really fun day for me. I felt I was getting very pampered (not like the diapers!)

So what do you honest!

Colorado Trip

We are finally back and getting settled again in the routine of city life. It was nice to be away and 'be one with nature' for 3 days skiing in Breckenridge COLORADO! It was beautiful as you can see from the pictures. We got to ski with friends of ours from church. Our pastor came and stayed with us one day and went skiing after 12 years of not!
The second half of the trip was a conference we had in Denver. It was our denomination's annual conference so most people from the denomination made a showing. We thought this would be good to go to to get to know people better in hopes of networking for the mission field. This proved a success as we got to have a meeting the the field director's for Ecuador! They seem really excited about what we want to do and really want to help get us there! This is such a MAJOR answer to prayer. Thank you to those of you who have been praying.

As well as the conference and rubbing shoulders with many 'Covenanters' we also got to reconnect with some of our friends from Seminary who are out in the trenches as pastor's! We are so proud of them and the work they are doing through Christ. It was such a joy and encouragement to see them all again and to catch up on life.

Pastor Paul and us after a day of skiing! We were all exhausted and sore.

AND We're off!

Tomorrow we are off to Colorado to do a little skiing and for a conference for our denomination.
We are looking forward to being away from the city for a while, catching up with friends, and just being together!
We just checked the weather and they just got 6 new inches of fresh powder!
We'll try to post as we're there.
