I can't believe Christmas has already come and gone. This month has just flown by! Jaci made out like a bandit this year with so much great stuff! She got a little motorized quad, a tricycle, a swing, a little table and chairs, a kitchen, and so much more smaller stuff. She was so overwhelmed! In fact, she was so overwhelmed she was really cranky. She had to have 2 naps, instead of her usual one.

Bill and I made out well too. My parents gave us a big huge flatscreen TV! I also got a cordless vacuum and some cute decorations and stuff. Bill got tons of LSU stuff, including: a leather jacket, blankets, sunglasses, etc.

It was a really good day! Bill's parents got in town this week and spent the Holiday with us! My parents and Ryan and Kelcie get in town TONIGHT! Bill's parents are staying with some of their other family while my family is here. We have had a great time with them so far!

Although there was snow here not too long ago, Christmas was almost 80 degrees. Crazy! Also, last weekend we were able to go to the temple and seal Melanie (Bill's mom) to her parents and sister. It was a wonderful experience!

Fun in the Valley of the Sun

Well, Jaci and I have been in Arizona for almost 2 weeks. We only have one week left and it feels like we just got here. We've had a lot of fun though. Thanksgiving was so yummy, I'm really craving some more stuffing and rolls! The day after Thanksgiving, we all drove out to the sand dunes in California by the Mexican border. We had a really good time and Jaci loved playing in the sand all day! We had no major injuries, so it was a good day!

Also, I got to go out with some of my oldest friends! It was so good to see them...we had so much fun together back in the day! We went to one of our favorite places, Bahama Bucks! Yummy! It was fun getting together with our kids...I just wish we could have hung out a little longer. Oh time!

Other than that, we haven't really done anything huge. We've just been relaxing and having fun with family! I reread all the "Twilight" series after I saw the movie the first time (loved it!), so that took up most of the first two weeks here.I also tried to do a photo shoot with her for our Christmas card, but that didn't work. She is the most uncooperative child when it comes to getting her picture taken, plus the camera was on a wierd setting so all the pictures came out was my dad's high tech camera, so I couldn't figure it out. Oh, Jaci went to nursery today for the first time with her cousin Berkley. She screamed most of the time when they made her stop playing with the play kitchen...until snack time. Hopefully, she'll get used to it!
