It isn't every day that you hear people from Seattle beg for rain, but yesterday that is what we were saying. It snowed hard the whole day and we got quite a bit of accumulation. Usually we would be thrilled to have a WHITE CHRISTMAS (because that doesn't happen often around here) but...this Christmas we were just worried about our flight getting out today. It is 4:00 in the morning and I must be excited and nervous about getting our flight because I have tossed and turned all night. Yesterday was a different day, it started out pretty normal and then we all kicked into our GOTTA GET PACKED AND READY mode and then it seemed like this might really happen!
It will be hard to not have Angie and John with us but I am sure they will be well taken care of by (John's mom) grandma and this will be a short trip anyway.
I need to start waking everyone up. I was hoping to tell you what my FAVORITE Christmas gift was but ....I have to wait a bit before I do that. Trust me keeping this to myself, is hard! :)
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas day and enjoyed the true meaning of it! I will share with you one of my favorite Christmas stories...it is the TRUE story of Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer, I don't know if you have read how the story of Rudolph came to be, but it is a sweet story. I guess I can relate on many levels with that story. I tease my family every time I have to put on my camisole with a shape ( or I call it my Mrs. Doubtfire outfit) that I feel just like Rudolph ...when his dad made him wear that artificial nose just so he would be acceptable to go out in public with the other reindeers. The famous line I quote each day is "It's not very comfortable". Anyway here is the web site for you to read it, it is wonderful.
Well, hopefully we are off to Utah to go see my Bradley get married. It is hard to imagine we will have another kid getting married, I still can't believe that we are getting old enough to have are kids growing up and moving on. But as a mom I have to see the up side ...our family is growing. We are soooooooo excited to have Krystal as part of our family! I hopefully will be adding photos of the wedding soon.
Have a wonderful day and remember...
