Well, tonight is New Years Eve. Josh, Di, Scott and Jenna are here with us. Jacob is still gone with the church, but he will be home tomorrow so that will be nice. When he gets home we will have our family Christmas. It's been such a nice weekend...and tonight will be a lot of fun too. We're going to eat lots of yummy food and play lots of games. Happy New Year.

Josh and Di are home

Josh and Di got here today. They will be here for a week, so we're going to do our family Christmas this Monday on New Years Day. It's so nice to have them home. We don't get to see them a whole lot since they live so far away, so it's nice to have them home for a little while.:)

Yesterday we had such a nice time. We were able to go to my brothers house and spend time with my side of the family for Christmas! We played games and ate lots of yummy food. I love getting together with family and catching up.

Back home from college

My son, Jacob, is back home from college for the holidays. It's so nice to have him home for a while! We enjoy catching up with him and getting to spend time with him. He's going to be working for a one of the jobs that he used to work for when he was living at home during the summers, so although he won't be around much during the daytime, we get some good quality time with him in the evenings! :)

Christmas Party

Last night was my office Christmas Party and we had a great time! We had a yummy catered-in supper at one of my boss's homes. We also opened gifts and had a great time hanging out with all of the people that I work with!

Holiday Baking!

I've been doing a lot of baking this past week. As I wrote, a couple of days ago, I love this time of year, and baking is something that I do and really enjoy.:) Although it makes for a long day when I do my Christmas sugar cookies, I still love the feeling when I have all my baking done and can share the things I've made with family and friends!

Christmas Time!

Christmas is right around the corner, and it's feeling like it more and more! I love this time of year!! We are reminded of what Jesus Christ has done for each one of us, and although it is wonderful to be with family during this blessed time of year, I always want to remember the reason for the season, and for the whole year for that matter!

Happy Birthday to me!

Today was my official birthday...even though we were able to celebrate with the kids this past weekend. It was nice though. I didn't have to work today, and got phone calls from all my kids. I had a great day, and got to spend time with my hubby too.

What a nice birthday!

We got home tonight from Cedar Falls, and finally got everything put away and unpacked. I had the greatest birthday! The kids had made me a yummy that my mom used to make me when I was young. That was really special. We also were able to go out to eat at the Olive Garden and spend time together. It was such a nice birthday weekend!
