So this will probably be the last post for several weeks. We are leaving for Vegas this week and we will be gone for 3 weeks. So this is me wishing you a Merry Christmas 9 days in advance. Feel free to come back on Christmas day. In such case, Merry Christmas: today! Below are some of our Christmas pictures:
Megan has really given us a run for the money this week. She is SUCH the little trouble maker – but in a sweet and funny kind of way. This week alone she has: climbed out of her crib, colored with crayons on the wall, crawled/fallen out of her high chair, and to top it all off: skipped her nap 5 days in a row. It is so hard to describe her little personality. I wish I knew what went on in that little brain of hers. She is just so fun.
So Adam and I planned on leaving Meg with a sitter and going to a party on Friday night. Yeah well – no such luck. I was on my way to pick up the sitter (she lives in another town and I didn’t know that until the Friday afternoon) and while on the highway, I realized I was going the wrong way and got frazzled and veered off the side of the road into A LOT of snow. Luckily, I was not going fast AT ALL because I was planning on turning around (our highways have turnabouts probably every 3 miles or so). Anyway, I was stuck and I had no idea what to do. So I called 911 and they sent out a deputy who tried to help me, but I was way TOO stuck, so we called a tow truck and he had to pull me out. One hour (and 40 dollars) later I was turned around. I decided to go ahead and get the babysitter anyway but about halfway there my gaslight went on. I was so upset/stressed that I just decided to forget the whole thing and cancelled. By the time I got home I was so upset and literally bawling my eyes out (a rarity for me). We had ordered a pizza for the babysitter, so after calming me down, Adam went and picked it up. While out, he stopped and got me some beautiful little roses that I love so much. We ate the entire pizza (one of those large “take n’ bakes” from Papa Murphy’s…so delicious) and watched Spider-man 3. The night was stressful, but turned out okay in the end. My little Megan was so sweet to me when I got home from the whole ordeal. I don’t know if she has ever seen me cry before and she would not leave my side. She climbed up on my lap and just kept smiling at me and hugging my neck. She also loved my roses:
So….other than that…Adam had his finals on Friday and they seemed to go okay. It’s really hard to tell how he did this semester. Things are VERY different from BYU. He still hasn’t finished the big project that was due/postponed. It WILL be done by Monday. Make no mistake about that.
Adam and I are both really excited about Christmas. I think I have finally matured enough to really appreciate the real meaning of Christmas and I have really been trying to think about Christ’s birth and focus on the Savior. I can’t wait to go home and be with family and experience all the special Christmas traditions.
So I never posted pictures on Picasa from last week, so I will post them with this week’s pictures. We did a little photo shoot with Megan in one of her Christmas dresses, so be sure to check them out. I guess that’s all for now…until next year 🙂
