Well, I've been off work for the last 4 weeks and have used this time to do everything except write blog posts. Here's what we've been up to the last month...
Week 1- I went to Malibu!!! (separate post to come) Josh gave finals, graded, and submitted grades. We also got our car back from the body shop- it looks beautiful!
Week 2- Mom and I spent 2 days washing windows. We decorated for Christmas and did a little shopping. I spent 1 day making ~100 cinnamon rolls- mmm, mmm!
Week 3- We enjoyed Christmas with Josh's family a little early and then my brother came to visit for the whole week!! We always put Adam to work when he comes and boy, did we have a big project this time. Josh and Adam took out a 50-foot pine tree that we needed to get rid of. Chopping the tree and doing the cleanup took 1 1/2 days. Don't worry, there will be a whole post with pictures and videos of that adventure! We also spent a day in Dallas visiting some family while my brother was in town. The rest of the week we just enjoyed each others company, ate a lot, relaxed a little, and played with guns and a bow. Oh yeah, we also hit our 11th anniversary!
Week 4- New Year's party, taking down decorations, cleaning, a little sewing, cutting wood, watching football
We pray you all had a wonderful holiday season! We really cut back on sending out Christmas cards this year, so here's our picture in case you didn't get one. The hats were totally Josh's idea :)
