Christmas Cheer

Hi all! Just a quick note to report on our lovely Christmas Day. I will upload pictures in the next day or so.

First, you should all know the "garbage" did not get taken out. The kids received their pillows on Christmas morning. Even better was that my SIL sent cute embroidered pillow cases that had the kids' names on them. They loved that!

Second, Steve did a great job gift-wise this year! He stuck close to the list I gave him and bought me some new tennis shoes, a professional grade cookie sheet, as well as a few other things I asked for. It was so nice! In fact, I did not get anything from him I did not like (no parrot or Ove Glove). I think this is the first time in all our marriage that has happened. Yay!

Third, my parents gave me a new bike. Talk about a surprise! I have been riding my Dad's old bike for about 8 years (a man's bike); the new bike is a woman's. Now I have to get Steve to move the birthday basket thingy over to the new bike. Or maybe I won't....

Fourth, Christmas evening I went to see Doubt with my parents and my Aunt Kay. It is a very thought provoking movie and I enjoyed it. Meryl Streep was amazing as usual.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful, too.

Scripture of the Day: 3 Nephi 1:13-14


  1. I want to go see that! How was it?

    What a great Christmas! My hubby followed the list too! Love it!

  2. I'm glad that you had such a great Christmas!

  3. Yay! I'm glad you had a great Christmas. A new bike? What kind?

  4. Yay! That's so great. I have been married for 22 years and Christmas gifts have improved but mostly I just buy mine own. One way to be happy. Hey, would you consider nominating me for the Whitney? (
