i just want to give a glimpse into our long weekend through some random thoughts and quotes that some of you may or may not understand or appreciate: enjoy :)
1 bed that had been peed on by a dog that i laid in for 30 minutes before Joel came to bed and laid in the wet spot...we slept on kid sleeping bags and used random house blankets that were not long enough to cover us up. needless to say - i woke up cranky and cold.
1 cousin asking Joel if she wanted the baby she was carrying...
1 horrendous headache Sunday morning that handicapped me to the bed while Joel had to get up at 6:30 and go to church for 6 hours...
2 games played with Joel's family where Joel not only DIDN'T win but kind of got last place...
2 Christmas movies watched while decorating our home (Surviving Christmas - very bad! Elf - very wonderful!)
3 new people at the greater Draper Thanksgiving that none of us (us being Joel, Neil, Leslie, and I) knew (happens every holiday at that house!)
3 nephews running around my parents home :)
4 hours of traveling to and from MI
7 dogs in one house at one time
8ish strands of lights put up around our house
$15 Christmas tree - yay our second married Christmas!
20+ crackers with Dawn's cream cheese, chipped beef and green onion cheeseball creation on Saturday afternoon...yummy
25 days until Christmas - another crazy holiday weekend full of family and surprises!
when i started this post i didn't realize i'd make it so numerical - but then that had a nice ring to it all...one of my favorite games of this season is writing emails/poems/conversations to the tune of different Christmas carols - maybe i'll do a future post honoring that fun!
