Finals and Freedom

Thanksgiving was a wonderful break for me this year as my schooling has kicked up a notch as we approach finals. The week before thanksgiving i had an 8-15 page paper on philosophy due and thank God i finished it in time and mine was actually 19 pages, hopefully my prof. won't mark me down for being a little over... Although i'm sure they are not much fun to read. :D Anyhow, i was exhausted by the end of that week and thuroghly enjoyed my thanksgiving break and all the food and family! So this week i went back to classes with a bang and started the week out with a presentation on Tuesday at 7:40AM... glad that's over now too. Now i guess the only thing left is to reach finals week and finish well.
Things are going well at home and at work. Kregels is getting busier by the day and I love selling all the Christmas gifts and seeing everyone's excitement for the season. a little snow came down today and i thought this might be our first big snow, but with it being michigan you know it stopped snowing within minuets and the sun came out to greet us! i do love the seasons!

Well, if you want more on what i've been up to check out our other blog... winellweekly.blogspot.com

Hope you all are great!! Love and Prayers!

This Just In...

Ok, i confess, i've forgotten about my blog for a few weeks and i've neglected to update all of my faithful readers on the new and ever exciting life of Chirstina Winell.... Ha ha well maybe not so exciting.

Mid-terms have come and gone and it seems impossible that the first semester of the new school year is coming to an end very soon. I am anticipating a good finish to the semester and i look forward to the winter events. TODAY marks the first day of Abbica, which for all of you who do not know, that is the beginning of the week of Abby Winell's birthday. Her birthday is 11/11 and we always celebrate throughout the week. This year's theme is Alice in Wonder land and it is always a party with Abby. We will officially celebrate Abbica on Sunday with cake, streamers, a tea Party and the works. Should be a blast.
On another note.... Jared got his first buck last week in the bow season. Actually he got TWO bucks so needless to say he was pretty excited and we have enough venison to feed a family of five for a year. I think we'll survive the winter months over here in sparta.
I am still working at Kregel Parable Christian Stores on the East Beltline and Christmas has come to Kregels this week we had our Christmas Open House on Saturday complete with Christmas music, Spiced Apple Cider, Cookies, and Christmas decorations. It was really fun and it gets me in the mood to have Christmas. Although Work gets a little nuts around Christmas time it is a whole lot of fun and i look forward to all of the festivities.

An update on Jared's Grandma, Arline Winell, she's still at St. Mary's rehabilitation center on 4 mile off of Alpine and she's doing very well. Her mobility is up and the pain is down. She has a mild case of Pneumonia and has been using a nebulizer and is not feeling poorly. She is looking forward to coming home and bugs her nurses to talk to those docotors and get her out of there all the time. She's a riot and i don't believe anything can ruin her spirit of joy and contentment. We all can learn something from her.

Blessings to you all as we kick off another week!
