Happy New Year...almost's less than two hours until 2007! No big parties that we are attending tonight, no hosting any parties to bring in the new year...just the fam and one of Bryan's buddies. We're really exciting people aren't we! But that's just fine with's been an extremely busy month and to have a whole night just being here at the house is cool with me. Can't think of a better way to bring in the new year than being with my family. Happy New Year to everyone!

I'm back...

So like I said...we've got internet today in the new domicile. (You would think we live way out in the country or something) We’ve been enjoying our new home…got a great view of the sun setting each night…I’ll make sure to have some pics of the view soon.

Much has gone on in the Prosser household over the past several how about a quick recap and then I'll try to get my butt back in gear blogging a little more consistently.

I've taken some "vacation" days as I always do around the holidays, especially when Bryan is out of school. Kind of makes me feel like a kid reliving those 'Christmas Vacation' moments.

Last weekend my family came down from the 'Ville for our 2nd annual Richmond Christmas gathering. Oh man did my lovely bride fix up a feast! (See pics!) It was a great time to have family here in our home...I love my family. And we had our big rummy game as usual, and of course the winner takes home the coveted mouse. My brother-in-law Jim won the game and keeps the mouse until we play next…he won’t keep it long!

I'm still preaching in place of my pastor since his back surgery. I've been doing a series called, "Challenged by Christmas" as we had been celebrating advent. I've really enjoyed preaching in this role...little bit different from teaching youth, it's been a bit challenging, but it's an amazing experience. So I'll be preaching this Sunday and after that our pastor will be back.

We went to the 'Ville Monday and Tuesday to celebrate Christmas with Holly's parents and always, a great time. Even took in a movie...Rocky Balboa! I love Rocky...and I'm glad he decided to come back for one more after Rocky 5 (STUNK!)

Got back Tuesday...took down all the Christmas stuff...did a little rearranging of the furniture. We had to make room for a NEW item that we got for Christmas. Let me explain first...a great story:

Holly's workplace did a "12 Days of Christmas" give away thing...12 days before Christmas a drawing was done for all Bluegrass Mental Health Employees...12 people won something like honey baked hams. The next day 11 people won another each day narrowed down the prizes got BIGGER. So guess who won the GRANDPRIZE from 1,000+ people in the drawing? HOLLYBIRD was the GRANDPRIZE WINNER! And what did she win????? A 50 inch PLASMA SCREEN TV!! Holy Cow Jeff did you say 50 inches of Plasma?? Dang...we couldn't believe it! I went and picked it up last's now in the great's been pretty enjoyable. DVD's are really incredible looking...we watched Dead's Man's Chest (Pirates of the Caribbean) tonight...stinking awesome. Just in time for all these college bowl games!

That's it for now...I'm tired

Alright...still no internet at the "new" house...Bell South has to bring out their engineers or something like that to fix things. So, I'm posting here in my office today.

Been a really CRAZY past few weeks, but it's a good kind of a crazy! Last Friday morning was graduation day at SBTS. What a day! What a was an "ultra formal" kind of a service, but I liked it...matter of fact I was really trying to savor every minute of it.

As they began to call out individual names, I was getting pumped...should I let out a big "yee-haw" after receiving the diploma? Or maybe a high-five to Dr. Mohler? Nah...again, it was a really formal service. "Jeffrey Wayne Prosser" was read...I walked towards Dr. Mohler...I gave a glance at a few of my professors who were sitting in the loft. Dr. Mohler said, "Blessings on you Jeff!" And then I walked off. WHEWWWWWWWWWW!!!! FINALLY!!!!!! AFTER 16 YEARS!!!!! HALLELUJAH...HALLELUJAH...

That night my incredibly awesome wife Holly, had an "open house" for me. She said a few family members were coming by...sounded good to me! NOPE...NOT EVEN CLOSE!! It was like "This is your life!" kind of a deal...there were folks I haven't seen in a while or for that matter friends that I didn't expect to see that night. I WAS BLOWN AWAY!

Of all the folks who were there, I gotta mention two guys who are to this day mentors to me. They will never really know how much they have impacted my life and have been incredible examples of what it means to be a Godly man. Kerry Jones, who was my youth minister at Valley View Church in Louisville and Rick Trexler, who was my campus minister at EKU. You guys are such great encouragers to me! I am a blessed man to have you as mentors in my life.

GREAT DAY and GREAT NIGHT of celebration! Thanks Holly-bird for everything...You really surprised me with all of this. Thanks to you and Bryan for allowing me to finish this degree...dang, I'm glad it's finished. You guys are awesome...and you are the love of my life.

-We're moved! The new home has been invaded by the Prosser family. We even have things hanging on the walls and a Christmas tree. The official move was last weekend (Dec.1st - 2nd). Thanks to all of those who lent me your muscles! I'll post some pics when we get some internet out there.

-Friday is graduation! FINALLY!!

-Our pastor has been out the past several weeks due to a bad back. So I've have the privilege to preach for the month of December.

So lots of stuff going on...
