Happy Christmas to all!!

I sure love this time of year!! For many of you who know me, this comes as no surprise!! :) I love everything about it...the smells, the music, the lights, the decorations, snow...everything!! But more importantly, I love the chance it gives us to reflect on our Savior and the wonderful gift he has given us. He has given us His love. He has given us Hope. He has given us a second chance when we fall short. For all these things I am grateful for---at this time of year and always. May we all use this wonderful season to show a little more kindness to those around us, and draw closer to our Savior--for because of his sacrifice for us...our lives are happier.
Merry Christmas to you all and a wonderful 2011!!!

Thanksgiving with Danny & Jaime!

We had a great Turkey Day! My brother and his wife came out to visit us and we had the funnest time. They were able to stay with us for about a week and a half! We had such a great time making and eating good food, roadtrip to Indianapolis for the Circle of Lights, seeing the Nutcracker, walk at Sunders Springs, Christmas in the park, the gingerbread house at the Galt House, our nightly hot chocolate, puzzles, Conan, Nertz, Jaime's and my mani/pedi party, eggnog toasts and boiled custard, ski ball and air hockey at Blazers, crusing the homes in Old Louisville, the Bat Musuem, and lots of other fun stuff. The best was the last night they were here, Jaime and I stayed up all night (literally) finishing a 1000 piece Christmas puzzle. We were just putting the last piece in as Steve was leaving for work at 6:40 am! It was so much fun! It was just great to have them here and I'm really missing them now that they are gone. Roscoe has been sulking too--he loved having extra people around to play with! :) It was a great time--come back soon guys!
