Its Christmas Time!

We had a great Christmas with family. On the 23rd, we went to my G&G Forbush's house and had a potluck. It was so nice seeing the aunts, uncles, cousins, and especially my grandparents. Then Christmas eve was spent at my dad's house. We started a new tradition for the grandkids this year where we read the story of Christ's birth from Luke and acted it out. Of course the grandkids played all the characters. It was really neat. We also had food that they had in the olden days like goat cheese, figs, pita bread, and other nuts and fruits. That was cool to experience too. I think the kids understood more of the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas Day was spent mostly at my mom's house. We had a present exchange game that was fun and also had an amazing Christmas dinner. Later we went to my dad's and opened Christmas from eachother. Andrew got me exactly what I wanted...some workout pants from Victoria's Secret and anti-wrinkle eye cream. I knowunds rsounds retarded, but I am already starting to get them. I spoiled Andrew with a remote conrol helicopter, windows tinted for his car, and other smaller things. We are so thankful for all the blessings which we have been given and most of all for our Savior Jesus Christ!

Thanksgiving and the Weather

Thanksgiving was a blast. We were able to spend time with both of my parents. My two favorite things about Thanksgiving are the food and spending time with family. Both were perfect. The food was amazing and most of my family was able to come to my dad's for dinner. On the other hand...this weather is crazy and not so perfect. I like snow for the month of December and that is it! The weather the last few weeks has been rediculous. Driving has already been terrible. Hopefully this dies down when Christmas is over. On a lighter note again, I am so excited for Christmas. I can't wait to spend it with my family and best of all...my hubby!
