Update..

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a good December, I sure know I am :) Only one day left of school so that alone makes it pretty good. But as I mentioned before, I love the Christmas season. One of the big reasons I'm really excited is because this is one of the first years I actually get to celebrate Christmas with Christ in mind.

I'm so glad that I have the wonderful oppurtunity to actually think of it as the day my Savior was born. I've been thinking about Mary a lot lately, can you imagine being the mother of the Savior Jesus Christ? I can't even imagine what it will be like whenHello everyone!

I can't even imagine what it will be like when I become a mother myself, but the mother of the Savior? Man that would be such a heavy load. She must have been a righteous women for Heavenly Father to pick her to be the mother of Christ..... Anyways...

Brady and I went to my parent's house in Utah for the holiday... It was quite fun, I really enjoyed the change of weather.

I also forgot to post about our most recent culture party... If you don't know, there is a culture party at our house on the first saturday of every month and each time we pick a different culture to celebrate and we have that cultures food, games and other fun things. This month was Asian night and the pictures are pretty hillarious and there is a video of my two youngest sister-in-laws dancing... so funny.
