Christmas update

Well, yesterday we took down all of our decorations. We got some good decor for next year on clearance so I am excited to have a little more than what we had this year. We were a little sparse/lacking on some good decor. Our house feels empty now-probably because we don't have much REGULAR decor....hmmm.


Christmas was GREAT! It was actually so fun! Christmas Eve we went to the Indianapolis children's museum with Bret's sister Carrie and Family. We were planning on having dinner with them afterwards. It was a free day at the museum so it was SO SO packed it was annoying. Other than that It was the most awesome childrens museum I've ever seen. It had 4 levels of EVERYTHING possible. We are definately going back (actually we are planning on going again next week before we go again to Carrie's house for cousin Seth's b-day party. Kade and Maggie loved it. Dinner was great and we had a lot of fun with cousins. Christmas morning was spent here and it was super fun seeing Kade get so excited about it and also watching Maggie scream "BABY, BABY" everytime she opened a present (that's pretty-much all she got. She is obsessed with anything that is stuffed and resembles a small baby). That evening we went to a ward member's house with another family and had some more great food and played games. It was fun.


The break has been so fun for us. We have planned a lot to do and have been busy enough. It's so nice having Bret around! I will be sad when the semester starts. We have just grown too use to him being here all the time!


New Years we went over to another ward family member house and had a blast. They cooked great food- and we loved it all. One more week of no school!

I'm feeling you on getting use to having your hubby home. I think I will be in for a rude awakening come Monday!
Looks like you guys partied hard and had sooo much fun! That Child's Muesuem looks like a blast. Your kids are getting so big and are adorable!

I know all about the decor prob. I've got this big basement painted in dark brown and orange. It's empty. There's very little that i own that actually goes into that color scheme. Plus I'll only be at this house for a minimum of 8 months. Why spend money on that? Oh yeah, and we are poor college students. That's the main reason.

And I'm with you on the MIA hubby. Mine has been out of town 4-5 days each week...and in one week he'll be gone for three months straight. (I'm gonna go insane) But it certainly makes me appreciate him when he's home. I'm all over him-Something he likes.
