Christmas with a bang!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year apart from the bah hum"bug" that finally hit the last member in my family yesterday. Here is our family Christmas photo this year!
That is right folks...God decided to end our year with a big bang with a Christmas miracle! You wouldn't be surprised if you see the time of this post (4:22 am) and could see me stuffing my face at the moment! Sleep is just not a number 1 thing on my list for some reason after about 4 a.m. now. If all of the handy dandy internet calculators are correct, I am about 8 weeks along and will be due in August. I go to the doctor on the 15th to get the final word on that, so please please please pray that everything is going good so far and that the baby is healthy. It is hard to wait that long to see the first picture and confirm that there really is somebody inside of my stomach that will be in charge of my life for the next 20 years!!

The other great Christmas blessing is that my sister is pregnant as well! She is about 4 weeks ahead of me so Lord willing, we will be pregnant and waddle together! We both told our family on Christmas Eve. Here is a pic of us with my brother's daughter and sister's son and the shirts that we made to tell our family. For some reason Finn wasn't wanting to smile during these pictures when he was cheesing all night.



Well, I'm going to try to lay here and catch a few more zzz's. I hope you all have a great and safe New Years! Until next time...

PS....sorry....I've had some questions about the t-shirt sayings....Finn's says, "God answers prayers....ask me for details" Isabel's says, "I believe.... in prayer (ask why!)" And they got to be the ones that shared the good news!

Bah Hum"bug"!

Well Christmas was going great until 4:00 AM yesterday.  I woke up to hear my poor husband in the other bathroom hovering over the toilet.  I went to check on him, but he didn't want me to come in so I wouldn't get it.  Well....that didn't last long.  At 8, it was my turn.  So we spent all day yesterday on and hovering the toilet.  Merry Christmas!  My wonderful brother came by to drop some crackers, soup, and Sprite off at my front porch when he found out we were sick.  He called me later to let me know his daughter just started as well.  I also got a phone call from my mom saying my dad starting getting sick this morning.  Oh boy!!!  So this is a warning to all out there....the bah hum"BUG" is out and alive this Christmas holiday.  Beware!  Well, I'm off to keep myself hydrated.  I am feeling somewhat better right now (knock on wood!)  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!  I will post at a later time w/Christmas stories and pictures!  Until next time...

Another Awkward/Embarrassing story...why me?

I have no idea why embarrassing things always happen to me at the wrong time, but here we go again...
Yesterday Luke and I made a quick trip down to Dallas and back for a wedding reception for Stephen Robertson.  On the way down, I was not feeling good, so we had to stop at 7-11 so I could use the bathroom.  The only bathroom they had was a unisex one with a urinal and then a wall with a door beside it for the toilet.  I went in, locked the door, but the door into the stall would not lock.  After a few minutes someone rattled the door a few times and I heard the click of the lock come undone.  I froze, made lots of noise, and it was silent for a few minutes.  I thought I was good until I heard the door open, so I hopped up real quick to flush, and then I saw feet underneath the wall and started to hear peeing noise.  GREAT!!!  Some man is right outside the door using the bathroom.  Now I am stuck behind a wall, b/c I DEFINITELY can not go out there until he leaves.  He finally leaves the bathroom so I rush out to wash my hands, and as I am, the door opens again, and you will never guess who it was.  It was the man's wife and kids.  They open the door, stop in shock when they see me, turn and look back out the door at their husband/dad.  I'm staring down the entire time trying my hardest to make myself invisible and leave quickly.  As I'm walking out the door, the wife reopens the door, looks at the sign on the door, and is yelling something at her husband in a different language.  Oh if I knew how to speak in tongues then and to know what was being said!!  So folks....moral of story....do NOT use a 7-11 bathroom if it is not an emergency (yet mine was) and NEVER trust the locks on their doors, b/c you will never know who might stop in to join you!

Not a whole lot has happened since I last posted....the only thing that has happened, is that my hair color has changed!  I'm now half blonde!   Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and an awesome Christmas this week.  Until next time...

November Update!

To start off, I'm going to hopefully cheer anyone up who might be having a bad day or just give you an extra smile! Here is my 2 year old nephew's version of "Had a Bad Day!" He's spends a lot of time with his daddy playing Rock Band and Sing Star (PS game with pop songs to sing)

video

His other favorite song is "Chasing Cars" which he does know the words but the video I took you couldn't hear him very well.

November was a great month! Some key highlights were....I surprised Luke with tickets to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra....AWESOME!!!! If they come back I highly recommend everyone go and see them. You definitly get your moneys worth!

For Thanksgiving, my boss and his wife went to Vienna to see thier daughter, so I got to have the full week off!!! I started with a trip down to Arlington, TX to see my best friend from college and her 5 mth old little girl that I haven't seen yet. Then on Thanksgiving, Luke's brother from Wyoming flew in and spent 4 days with us! We had sooooo... much fun and miss him so much now! We took him to see the James Bond movie and the movie Australia. Again, I highly recommend seeing Australia. It's long, but very good!

The last exciting thing is that we finally got a X-mas tree!! We went from our little 3 foot fiberoptic tree to a nice 9 footer!!! Here is a picture of it in all its glory! Notice that we had to bend the top of it down so it wouldn't hit our ceiling!!!

We finally got all of our X-mas shopping done this weekend!! I just have to finish making the gifts I need to and then it will be all done!!! I hope you all have a great week and a Merry Christmas if I don't update again til then!!! Blessings to all! Until next time...

Funny question of the month...

Last night I went on a Father/Daughter date with my dad since I had to go to Yukon to vote, we ended up going out to eat after to the Rib Crib. Our waitress was a giddy nosey teenager who kept coming over to our table and saying, "You guys are laughing again...what are you talking about?" Which our response was an awkward look at each other and a polite "Nothing", because number 1 it's none of your business and 2nd we didn't want to offend her with what we were talking about!! Well, at the end of the meal, again, she came up and said, "You guys are so cute. How long have you been...(I'm praying inside at this point she won't end the question with the word married) father and daughter?" WHAT???? Did she seriously just ask us how long we have been father and daughter? Again...the awkward look at each other and then my dad's classic response of, "Well.......uhhh....since the day she was born!!" haha Gotta love those stupid questions!!!

Until next time...

Lots of catching up to do...plus new look!

Well, I thought I was going to be on a roll there for a second last month, but that came to an abrupt halt!!! Well, even though it was over a month ago, we did have a good time on our vacation! Here are a few pics...

A pic of where we sat at the Broncos game!

The stealth bomber that flew over before the game!

A nice close up picture of Cutler and the guys!

Me and Todd Helton at the Rockies game!
Coors Field

The weekend of Luke's 30th birthday in October, we went on a trip to Kansas City, MO for a banquet in honor of one of Luke's father figures who won the "National Childcare Worker of the Year Award" for all Christian Childcare Organizations. Randy is the director of Mountain States Children's Home where Luke grew up at. It was a fun time because all his kids flew in to surprise him at the banquet, so that meant we had to hide from him for a whole day. That was pretty hard when you are staying in the same hotel! At one point, Abby (his daughter) and I were stuck in the hotel gift store while Luke was stuck in the stairwell of the parking garage because Randy came down from his room quicker than we thought!
We had a good Halloween going to a couple of parties! We first went to our class party and then on to Yukon, to see my nephew and spend a little time with my family. My sister was begging me to come because my nephew had been going on and on this past week about seeing "the whoopie cushion". And yes, that is what I was for Halloween! We didn't take any pictures of ourselves, but I was a whoopie cushion and Luke went as Marty McFly (from Back to the Future) Here is a pic of what my costume looked like!


Well, that about sums up the last couple of months for us! Luke is absolutly loving his new job with Cox as an engineer and I am staying busy with my work! Life is going to start getting a little crazier the closer we get to the holidays, but I will try to stay updated as much as I can! Hope you all have a wonderful week! Until next time...

Awkward Moment

So have you ever been in a situation and when someone comes up on the scene you are praying so hard that it's not who you think it is?! Well, here's a great story for ya! We were on our way up to Vail and Luke said he had to go to the bathroom bad, so we pull off on an exit that shows a gas station, but when we get off, there is not a sign to show which way to turn for the gas station. By the way, if you have ever driven through the mountains you know that the gas stations are few and far between. So we look in both directions, see nothing at all and have to take a wild guess which way. So we go right and drive...and drive....and drive...and nothing but houses. So I get on my new handy dandy phone and go to the GPS system and search for gas stations. Not handy at all, so we turn around and start going back toward the interstate. Luke couldn't last that long, so we drove down what looked like a deserted road which had a couple houses on it, but shortly came to a dead end. So we turned around, and as soon as we did, we noticed this at one of the houses...

As you can see, the car is stopped right in front of the driveway so Luke jumped out and took off to use the port-a-potty. As soon as I take this picture, I look up and see a car coming down the road. Yeah, you guessed it...the homeowner. I see him put his blinker on and stop right in front of our car and roll the window down. So I jump into the driver seat to move the car forward and roll my window down. And I pray this will be the only time that I start a conversation with a stranger with, "I'm sorry sir, my husband is using your port-a-potty. We're from Oklahoma and are lost." :) Thankfully he just laughs at me and asks if I wanted directions. Well, I think that's a little too late sir!! What a humbling experience!

On the Road

This post brought to you Live from Hays, KS! That's right folks, we are on the move for the next week! Our first and only vacation of the year is finally here!! Well, I know I have kept some of you in suspense with the last post. :) The great news is that Luke got a new job!! He will be an engineer for Cox Communications now. He will put his official 2 weeks notice in next Monday when we get back. We are so excited and many prayers have been answered. Thanks to all of you out there for your prayers in the past for Luke's job situation.

Well, we FINALLY got our new car on Thursday night and we absolutly LOVE it!!!! My advice for anyone looking for a new car...look at the Mazda 6. And if you do go by, mention our name!! (had to put in that cheap plug for us!) Here is a picture of the 6...
One of the many awesome things about this car is that we can make it from Edmond to Colorado on one tank of gas!!! How awesome is that!!!
Well, that's all I have for right now, but stay tuned this week to some updates from our trip! Until next time...

3 Month Update

Well, here we are again folks. Another 3 month delay! Same song, third verse...work is crazy busy for me right now. I have enough time at night to stalk all of you, but don't have time to blog for myself! :) I have a few minutes before I have to leave for a baby shower so I will update you on what has happened in the wonderful Carnagey world!! All of the new stuff has actually happened in the last 2 weeks. First...we got a new pet that we named after Elizabeth because she was so excited and wanted one too, right Elizabeth?!! Here is a picture of her!
This is not the exact picutre as you can see b/c I can not get the picture off of my phone, but this picture looks alot like her! We found her on our front porch this past week just waiting to get inside! Her stay wasn't long since tarantulas are really not my favorite creatures, so after a little jumping and screaming like girls from my husband and myself, he put it underneath the shed of an abandoned house across the street from the Mullins! Just ask Elizabeth how she is sleeping now after seeing our new pet!! :)
Another new thing we got was a new car! We traded in our Jeep Liberty for a new Mazda 6 which gets twice the gas mileage now! You may ask, why haven't I seen it yet? Well, we are asking the very same question! We bought it over a week ago and still are waiting for the car to come in that we ordered. We called everyday last week and when we asked when it would be here, the answer would be, "Tomorrow." and "tomorrow" came and "tomorrow" went. Supposedly it will be Monday (tomorrow) when we will finally get it. I knew my mom was right when she said never trust a car salesman!! Learned my lesson now!
We have one more new thing going on, but you will have to check back later in the week to find out since it is not final right now!! (I love keeping people in suspense!)
Luke and I will be taking our only vacation this year on Friday!!! It is a surprise 30th Birthday trip for Luke that I have had planned for the last 4 months. I can not give you the details right now since I don't know if any eyes will be looking at this or not, but when we get back, I will post lots of pictures!
Well, it is time for me to go! I hope you all have a great week and I will see most of you on Thursday night for Girls Night!!!! Whoop Whoop!!!! Until next time...

May/June Update! I know, I know...sorry!

Good honk! "Amy, you are a horrible blogger!" There, I said it for you!!! If you want to discuss this issue more, you can leave me a comment!! For some reason it is hard for me to sit down and focus to update. So...I guess monthly updates are what I'm best at right now! So for the month of May....

Luke and I had our 4th year Anniversary!

My parents also had their 35th Anniversary so we took them to the Melting Pot for a surprise celebration!!





In June, I got to be a counselor at the camp that I grew up at. I have been gone for 3 years, so it was good to be back! I had the high school girls in my cabin and had the awesome experience of studying with 2 of them who became Christians!! It was a great spiritual refresher as well for me! Here is a pic of my girls!!!
Wow...now wasn't that a short 2 month update! As you can see, we live a pretty boring life around here right now! Work is insanely busy for me right now since this is our second week to be paperless. Talk about stress! Whose idea was it to go green again?!
Well, that is all for now... I will be on the edge of my seat to see if anything exciting happens worth blogging about this month and if not...well probably see you next month!! (or I may just surprise you!!) Until next time...

Moms and prayers

Look at me!!! 2nd time in a month!! Watch out! Well, we had a good mother's day this year. We went to Yukon for the weekend to spend it with my mom and family. It was nice having my entire family at church!! Doesn't happen often even though we all live 30 min. away from each other!! Since I'm the only non-mom, I guess they decided that I had to plan things to do. Uh....no! So I put it right back on them and made them choose where we were going to eat. All in all it was a good day! I hope all you out there had a great Mother's Day since I think everyone out there is now a mom or mom-to-be!
Now on to some recent stuff this week and side note prayer request. This past Friday, Luke started to notice that the tip of his tongue started to go numb. Not a big deal to mention anything to me. Well, as the day went on, he realized that the lower right part of his lip started to go numb as well, which he then mentioned to me. The next day, the right bottom jaw was numb he noticed when he was brushing his teeth. So on Sunday I mentioned it to one of my friends who is a dentist in Yukon about it and he said it might be a wisdom tooth hitting a nerve, but he needs to go have it checked out. So Monday morning he goes to our dentist and talks to him about it, but refers him to see an oral surgeon, but they can't get him in until next Monday. We thought that would probably be fine, until during the morning on Monday, he noticed that now half of his tongue started going numb. Oh boy! So I got on the phone, made some phone calls...get R done! He ended up going to see another oral surgeon yesterday morning. They ran x-rays and did other things that tooth dr.'s do and couldn't find a cause for the numbness...everything looked fine mouth wise. So, they sent him to our PCP who did 5 different blood tests on him, other "brain tests", and are sending him to go have a MRI/CT Scan done. Our PCP doesn't think it is anything really huge, but at the same time doesn't want to rule anything out without tests being done. So...now comes your part with us!! Please pray for Luke and ask God that we can find a cause for this and that there is a cure, hopefully minimal!! Thank you in advance and I will keep you posted on what we find out! Love to all, until next time...

Slacker

To my loyal readers, I apologize for the long silence. (Like you haven't heard that apology before!) So lets catch up! We have continued to do some remodeling at our house. We just got done with our office/future nursery. We had a door that went from the house into the garage through one of our bedrooms. Weird I know, but the people before us thought that was a great feature. Yeah I guess....especially for your kids who are so eager to "go to bed" early to see what trouble they could get into! So we walled up the door, painted a new color, and moved our office desk and computer out into the living room area which we love now! My husband is quite the handyman! Can't even tell there was a door there!! See photos below...

Now you see it...

Now you don't!!

Life at work has been a little crazy. We are shorthanded at the moment, so it makes it a little busier, which I like, but makes me exhausted by the end of the day. We are also trying to go paperless at our office. I thought it was so awesome at first, but now getting farther into it, going green is not as easy as you think! At least we'll make those tree huggers happy!
Some other great news is that our car has become officially ours as of tonight @ 7:25 p.m.! We paid the rest of our loan off!! It's nice when you can turn a 6 year loan into a 2 year loan!! God is good! And if my calculations are correct, we will pay off our jeep by the end of this year and be debt free!!! Well, except for the lifetime mortgage loan! I think they should go ahead and just call it a lifetime loan!! Makes more since!
Well, I think that is about it for now! Now it's back to stalking all of you!!! Until next time...

Catching up

Well, I've been stalling on posting until I can put up pics with my post, but I still have no pics so I decided to go ahead and write before it turns into another 2 months. Last weekend we took my brother, sis in-law, and my niece bowling (pics I'm waiting on). We had a lot of fun and it was the most important day in bowling history!! That's right folks...Amy Carnagey FINALLY scored over 100 points WITHOUT bumpers!!! It's ok, I can give you my autograph and some pointers later when you see me! :)
This week has been good as well. We got brand new windows all throughout our house with a new sliding back door. Thanks to Champion windows, the Mullins for the referral, and Uncle Sam/Mr. President for the money!!! I would highly recommend these windows to everyone! Even though our house is torn up and blinds scattered in all different rooms, it is well worth it. I think we might go ahead and paint our other two bedrooms now since everything is already moved away from the walls! So more remodeling in the Carnagey house! Woohooo! OH...quick funny story about installing the windows...my 2 yr. old nephew and sister were here with me when they were installing the windows and Finn looked out the window and saw one of the men smoking. He came running into the room and said, "Mommy, Aunt Amy, that man is having a birthday and he is eating it too!" Thinking he was eating a birthday candle, we both busted out laughing! I love little kids' perception on life!
Today we went and did the Mike McDonald Fun Run this morning. Due to my crippledness, Luke and I just did a fast pace 3 mile walk. And good honk it was freezing out there with that wind. I wore shorts thinking that by the time we got started I would warm up. God had a different plan of freezing me and numbing my legs to the point that I couldn't feel them anymore so it seemed bearable. It was good to see Kathy and all of the McDonald kids again!
Well, I think that is all for right now. Hope you all are having a great weekend and will see most of you tomorrow!! Until next time...

GOD IS GOOD!

Just a real quick update to let you know that Luke does have a job!!!!! God is good! As that is great news, it is also bitter sweet since 2 other guys got laid off. Please keep these two guys, especially John in your prayers as we praise Him for answering our prayers, but pray for those who now need jobs. Thanks to all of you for your concerns and prayers! God blesses us with a great Christian family! Love to all! Until next time...

Needing prayers

Good afternoon loyal blog readers or stockers!!! I come with a BIG prayer request for Luke and I. As I have mentioned before, Luke's work is going through a reorganization time. Which in other words mean laying off employees. The time has come down to Luke's level of employees. All the managers and big wigs have already been moved. So today and this weekend we ask if you could please keep us in your prayers. Luke will find out Monday if he still has a job. If he does get canned, then his last day will be on Friday the 28th. Right now, Luke really has no idea where he stands. I know God is good and no matter what, he will provide and take care of us, but at the same time, I've been in a zone lately and I'm trying really hard to have a peace of mind about it all. So if you talk to me this weekend and I'm spaced out, just hit me and get my attention! Love to you all and hope you have a great Easter weekend!! Until next time...

Sunday, March 16, 2008

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted....sorry! Our life isn't as exciting as all of our friends who have kids or expecting, so it's hard to write something interesting happening in our lives daily!! Well, I don't have pics on this computer, but I will edit later and put in some pics of my nephew Finn's 2nd birthday party we had last weekend. For his gift, we took him to see Sesame Street Live with Elmo!!! We didn't know for sure how he would react to "big creatures", but he LOVED them!! And on a side note, I really enjoyed myself as well!! We will have to keep that in mind when we have kids! It was a fun environment! His Cookie Monster birthday party was fun as well. But word to the wise...always watch your kids when you tell them to blow out the candle. Finn thought blowing meant eating! He had his whole mouth around the flame about to bite down when we all yelled and Amber grabbed him and pulled him back! Close call!
Well other than that, not much more has been going on besides work. Speaking of work...please keep Luke in your prayers. Sprint (who he works for) seems like they are in a rocky spot. The rumors we have heard aren't the best and he's stressed and nervous about it all, so please keep him in your prayers. I hope you all have a great week filled with God's blessings! Until next time...

FREEDOM!!!!!

That's right folks! The Carnagey's are going on 2 weeks of full health!! (knock on wood) This past week was our first Sunday in over a month to go to bible class and church! I felt like we needed to go forward and place membership again! It has been waaaaay too long. But it was awesome to see everyone again and not feel like you had to wear a mask and yell "Unclean!" as we were walking down the hall! This post may get a little long, so I apologize in advance, but we had a great weekend full of surprises and remodeling, so if you like picture books, there will be pictures to go along!!!

First off, before you get too bored, I have to share crazy story about my sister's 30th surprise party I threw this past weekend for her. To make a long story short (sorta)...I had talked to my bro-in-law about setting up a surprise party at Johnny Carino's (one of the only restaraunts that has a side room these days) and the choices were in Yukon for lunch or Edmond for dinner. Lunch it is!!! So, master plan everyone there at 11:45, birthday girl there at noon. So everyone shows up, noon rolls around, no sister. 12:05.....12:10...12:15...no sister. Call Ben....no answer. Sister's friend calls Ben, he does answer and she hands me the phone. Conversation: Me: "What's going on?" Ben: "I'm in Edmond, where are you?" Me: "And I'm in Yukon, oh boy!" So he's mad now, my stomach is in a knot, and the plan is busted....so we think. But thanks to my wonderful sister, when Ben got back to their table from "using the restroom and making a call" she asks, "Was that a page from work?" And he replys. "Yes....yes it was....and we have to go." (what a genius!!) Ben works in the medical field by the way and is the manager over nurses at Deaconess Hospital. So they leave and he makes this nice big story up about something that happened and now he needs to take care of it. But by the time they reach Yukon, like any other great man, he decides that they can go ahead and eat at Johnny Carino's in Yukon and then take care of business!! :) The thing is that all of us think have no clue and think the plan is busted until she walks in and is in complete shock when we yell "Surprise"!!! So moral of story....always confirm the plan that day! Here is a picture of the cake that Katie Rowten helped me make for the party....like stated before from many others....she's a genius at cake making!!!

Now on to remodeling pictures...This past weekend, Luke and I bought a new bedspread, repainted our room, and refinished the wood work which made a HUGE difference in looks. My wonderful husband spent all day Friday (his day off) and started priming the walls and refinishing the wood. Then we spent all Saturday evening and Sunday painting. Here are a couple of before and after shots. Tell me what you think!!

Well, hope ya'll are back to being healthy and hope you have a great week! Until next time...

On lock down...

What a week!! Last week I was out all week from work dealing with a 102 fever for 5 days, having an allergic reaction to my antibiotics, and my body deciding for a day that it would not hold any food in. I've been feeling a lot better, but still have congestion in my chest and head. And now, this past weekend Luke started to get a fever and congestion and went to the dr. yesterday and was diagnosed with the flu. Oh boy! Round two, ding ding ding. So the dr. has him and me both on flu medication (along with the medication I am already taking) since he is contagious. He now has to stay home for the 2nd week in a row. He was such a sweet husband and stayed home with me 3 of the 5 days last week since I was pretty much useless! So please say a prayer for both of us that we can get back to feeling 100% healthy and normal since we are going on 3 weeks now of continual sickness from one bug or another. Since Luke is on "lockdown", we are going to have a nice, noncontact, relaxing night tonight!! It's hard on V-day to not be able to kiss the one you love, having to wash your hands every time you touch him, and have to sleep for the third night in a row on the couch!!! So, I hope you all have a V-day full of hugs and kisses with your spouse!!!! Until next time...

Spoke too soon!

Well, the bugs are attracted to me. I woke up on Saturday to a sore throat, cough, and fever. Happy Birthday to me! So my birthday was spent laying down as much as possible, heading to Yukon to have lunch with my family, and then going over to their house afterwards to sleep. So our fun birthday bowling plans got put on hold. It is now day 3 of fever over 100, with a VERY sore throat, horrible cough, and now congestion. I went to the dr. today and he thought it was the flu, but the test came out negative. He is confused on what I do have since both sets of glands for viral and bacterial were really swollen. So now I am on antibiotics and have to stay home until I can kick this fever to go back to work. Lucky me! I miss everyone, since it seems like FOREVER since I have spent real quality time with my friends due to being out of town for two weeks and now sickness. Again, thanks Elizabeth for the yummy supper you made us on Friday...sorry we had to eat and run! Love to all. Until next time....

What a day...

Well, today was my g-pa's funeral which was sad, but uplifting and it was nice to see all of my family. I am feeling better now (thank goodness), but Luke started to feel bad at the funeral and on our way home, he started throwing up in the car. Not cool! So, now it's my turn to take care of him!! So everyone beware of the Carnagey household! Hold your breath if you come anywhere near by! Hopefully this will only be a 24-48 hour thing like mine was. So please keep us in your prayers.

Remember me?

Well, since it has been over 2 months since I have updated, I don't know if anyone will remember me!!! I've had people get on to me for not updating in forever, so I finally have some time to do so....here we go!!! Last 2 months in short....

Thanksgiving we went to Idaho to see Luke's grandma. Since I am unable to take off work during the Christmas season, Thanksgiving is our time to get a way to see Luke's family. We had a great time stuffing ourselves and we actually got to Idaho and back on time,
which we thought was a HUGE shock if you know our traveling history!!! Here are a couple pictures of our trip.

Then we are skipping a whole month to Christmas. We had a wonderful holiday with my family. This was the year that both my niece and nephew enjoyed opening up gifts and enjoyed what they got, not just the box and tissue paper inside!!! For Christmas I got a new camera (Canon Rebel XTi) from my hubby and absolutely loving it!!!!

Besides the holidays, our life these past 2 months have been about the same during the week...work, eat, sleep! Fridays, we are doing DC4K which we love! Those kids brighten up our day everytime we get to spend time with them!

On a different note, please continue to keep my family in your prayers. I got a phone call late Thursday night that my grandpa (my dad's dad) passed away suddenly. Even though he was 94, he
was still in good health. It will be sad to never be able to get to go to Grandpa's Farm again. The hard thing for me right now is that I am here suppose to be with my family, but thanks to food poisoning, I am stuck here in the hotel room with my hubby as the rest of my family are together. I am actually feeling somewhat better than earlier today, but still go back and forth. I pray that I will be feeling good for Monday to go to the funeral.

Love you Grandpa/P-pa (great g-kids called him)
Hope you all are having a great start of the year, and hope to get better at this!!! Until next time...
