As they say in the great state of Texas: MERRY CHRISTMAS, Y'ALL

I hope everyone's holidays were just as awesome as mine were. Christmas Eve we had an interesting night though. After all of our festivities we were just hanging out at my mother-in-law, Carol's house and getting ready for Santa to come when suddenly the carbon monoxide (sp?) alarm went off. We sat wondering what to do for a while and then decided we should probably call 911 like it tells you to. So the police and fire department showed up and the reading of the air in the house was 22 parts per million (honestly no idea what that means) but it wasn't too good. So we went over to Jennie and Kaleb's for a while and then went back when the gas people showed up. They fixed everthing and we were ok, but a little scary for a bit there. It did give us a lot of respect for those guys though. They were so nice and didn't even seem upset that they had to come over at 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve. ;)

Christmas day was awesome. We all got to talk to John's brother Dan, who is on a mission in New York. He's doing great. John and I got some awesome gifts and we are just lovin' life! How could you not when you are married to such an adorable man who just treats you like a queen?

Well, that's about all I have. We'll leave it to John to add anything if he wants.
Loves! Merry Christmas, hope Santa left some goodies for everyone!!! ;)

Well...well...well...I think this is like only the second update I've written so here we go;) John and I have to speak in church tomorrow. Our topic is on "Building an Eternal Family". Fun, huh? We were supposed to speak last week but our ward missionaries wanted to so we had to wait a week, which in some ways was nice because we had our talks prepared a week in advance, but honestly I haven't thought much of it at all this week.

My sister-in-law, Jennie, let me burrow a book called A Thousand Splendid Suns. Let's just say that's all I did this week. It is SUCH a good book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for something good to read.

John's work is picking up. I hardly see him. It's NOT fun, but life goes on and some things have to happen. I still haven't started work, which has been hard. I am going to call them on Monday and if they still don't say I'm going to be starting anytime soon, I'll have to start up the job search again.

John's friend, Jackson, rented The Beatles Rockband so we've been playing that A LOT this week. LOTS of fun. Love that game.

I'm excited for Christmas. I am going to miss my family in TX but it's such a bitter sweet thing. It'll be great though, because I LOVE THE MOSMAN'S a lot.
