Merry Christmas!!!

What a day! I love's so fun, especially as a kid. But, man it's a lot of work! We had our big Christmas get together Thursday night. There were about 30 family and friends at our house. We had so much fun. Lots of food, fun, and laughs. But it was also a very long and tiring day. I was exhausted when it was all over.

Then came Christmas Eve, we had 4 stops to make. Everything went smoothly. We really have such wonderful families.

Today, we've made 3 stops, we're taking a little rest then will go to Steven's parents for Christmas with them tonight. I love getting together and visiting with everyone, it just drains you when it's all over.

I'm already thinking about after Christmas shopping. Unfortunately, our pre-lit Christmas blew some now we have to buy another one. I'm hoping I can find a cheap one.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Busy, Busy!!!!

I thought after the fall semester was over my life would slow down… boy was I wrong. This time of the year is never slow. There is so much going on and so much to do.

Last Thursday, the hubby & I celebrated our 4th anniversary. I can’t believe we’ve been married for 4 years. Time is flying by so fast…I wish it would slow down…but I also catch myself wishing for certain days or events to get here…I just need to learn to be more patient. Maybe that will be my New Year’s Resolution #1 thing to do in 2011.

This past weekend, the hubby & I went to Dallas to just get away for the weekend and celebrate our anniversary. We were supposed to stay with Dave & Paula, but Paula’s mom got sick so they had to come to Texarkana to take care of her. Instead, we spent the weekend with Gin & Howard. It was nice to get to visit and catch up with them. It’s been a while since we got to spend much time with them, so everything worked out. We ate, ate, and ate some more…then did a little shopping in between eating. I think I gained 2 pounds…but that’s okay…I don’t ever get to eat like that here.

I been trying to finish my last minute Christmas shopping. I hate that I’ve waited til the last minute to finish things up but it is what it is. I only have Steven’s stocking stuff left..and I’m pretty sure I know what I’m going to get him so it shouldn’t be too hard.

Today, I’m meeting with Jenny to have her birthday lunch. I always love visiting with her…I miss working with her and it’s always fun to catch up. Thursday marks the beginning of Christmas for us. Everyone is coming to our house Thursday night. We have 3 places to go on Friday and 3 places to go on Saturday. I enjoy Christmas, but it’s a lot of work! I’ll be exhausted by the time Sunday gets here. Thank the Lord for these 2 weeks off! I love being lazy and going shopping when I want to.

So Thankful!

I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am right now. Things just seem to be working out so well. Monday is my last class for this semester!! I’m so happy Fall 2010 is about to be O-V-E-R!!! This week is also the last week before Christmas break… Halleluiah!!!! Thursday is the hubby & my 4th anniversary. I can’t believe we’ve been married that long. Time is flying by. Christmas is right around the corner. I’m just the happiest girl in the whole world!!!

Final Countdown!!

I can "almost" see the light at the end of the tunnel! The fall semester is almost over. I finished writing my Research Proposal yesterday. I sat & worked for 7 straight hours to complete it. Now Kayla is proofing it, hopefully there won't be too much to change and tomorrow afternoon I will turn it in...I'll be almost done with everything for this semester. I still have my Action Research Project to do...but I'm not going to stress out too much about it... I'm so ready for Dec. 14th to get here and I can take a sigh of relief. This has been such a tough semester!
