Texas Time!

For those of you who are regular readers (and we've met a lot of you on this trip), thanks for keeping up with the Crooks in Romania!  It's been great to chronicle our adventures through this blog and we are encouraged to hear from so many people who are following us in this way.  Keep the messages coming! :)

This week, we are enjoying some great family time with Katie's family in San Antonio.  We have played games (Katie won the Mexican Train marathon), eaten lots of great food (including my first deep dish Chicago-style pizza), and relaxed with family and memories old and new.  Sunday, we had a great afternoon visiting some of our dear friends in Austin. Last night I was able to officially join the SPURS fan club by attending a nail-biter of a game against the Memphis Grizzlies.  While we would have loved for the outcome to be different (117-116 loss in third overtime!), we still had a great time.  We're looking forward to the next few days of family and Christmas celebration #1 before we fly back to South Carolina next Wednesday.

Go SPURS Go! (that's Katie's brother, Paul)
Thank you for praying for, keeping up with, and encouraging us during our time in the States.  We wish all of you a great week before Christmas!


UPDATE: Last night we enjoyed a great dinner at Casa Rio on the riverwalk !  This was one of my requests for our time here.  It was a great night (even if I did get attacked by a duck)! :)
