Oh Christmas Time

Man oh man! I haven't posted in forever and haven't really given any kind of information AND haven't been reading any blogs! Whats HAPPENING?! So unlike me. :(

(Side story real quick, I was just talking on the phone, Sam's sitting in my lap sleeping and when I said goodbye, Sam mumbled "byyye..." in his sleep! Too funny!)

So anyway, Christmas this year has felt REALLY different, not just because I'm not in my own place, putting up my own decorations and all that; but it also doesn't feel like visiting family at Christmas because we're living with family. Its just weird. Its been hard to get into the Christmas spirit and I can't believe its only a week away! Jinglebells, I need to get moving! (That was my effort to get into the Christmas spirit, by the way.)

So I finally got to go into my first dr.'s appt. since we moved! I was really excited until I got there and had to wait, and wait and wait and WAIT. Two hours after my appointment was scheduled did I finally get to leave, and its not like I did anything excited, except give a ton of blood. Mostly just waiting, and filling out paperwork that I'd already filled out before. Poo. So I did get to finally schedule an ultrasound, but the lady who does them is gone for two weeks for Christmas, so its not until January 7th! By then, I will let you all know what kind of baby we're having (as in boy or girl, not naughty or nice) (oh look! More Christmas references! Yay!).

I think time is weird. You can have so much to do, and in between be so bored. Its like fast and slow, but never normal. Atleast thats how it feels right now for me. I really miss all of you down in Utah SO MUCH! I honestly thought when we moved that it would be a piece of cake, that I would have family and friends up here to keep my mind off of missing anyone, but thats just not true. I hope everyone knows how much I love them and am wishing I could fly down there today to hug you and tell you in person how awesome you are!

Oh, and real quick, we went down to Bethany's school this morning for an assembly because Bethany won a "Terrific Kid" award! You know the ones, where you see on someone's bumper "My Child is a Terrific Kid!" Yup, we have one now! haha I'm glad she's terrific at school, wish she didn't use it all up before she got home though! :)

Alright, well, I suppose I have other things to do! Merry Christmas everybody!

Just More of This and That

I don't have tons to tell you today, just two big things:

Number One--David found out when he leaves for basic, and that is January 25th. He'll be there for about 9 1/2 weeks and then start his individual training for another 9 weeks or so. Oh, and its in South Carolina, he's never been past I think Montana, so big change for him! Hopefully they're going to give him a couple days to come home when the baby's born (I hope, I hope, I hope!!), but other than that, after January we won't see Dave until the end of June-ish. Crazy crazy crazy...I can't think about it anymore or I'LL be going crazy! Oh and also, he didn't get to do Military Intelligence like he wanted, but he'll be doing like HR work, so he'll be like an office guy sort of thing. So there you go with all that.

Number Two--it was Maddie's birthday Sunday, she turned FOUR YEARS OLD!! I can't believe how fast the time goes and how old my kids are getting! I wish I could add the pictures from the party but I can't take the pictures off my camera onto this computer so that part sucks. :( Since her birthday was on Sunday we just had a little party at my mom's house with cousins and aunts and uncles and such, and it was a good old time! I decided on Saturday that I was going to bake her a fun cake, and let her choose one from a book I had. She chose a castle sort of cake, so I said okey dokey! Except it didn't really want to cooperate with me, the cake broke when I tried to take it out of the pan, so I had to sort of operate on it, then I burned my finger pretty bad (good enough to get one of those burn blisters--ouch!) and things were falling over and I was getting messy and bah! Oh well, it got done and she liked it so thats all that matters! She loved her presents and loved Aunt Bev story telling to them, it was great fun had by all! (Well, hopefully everyone had fun, atleast all the kids really did! haha)

So anyway, those are the big things that have been going on this past week and I'm excited for all the fun Christmas stuff coming up, it will be great! (Not that I can post pictures to show you or anything...heh heh)
