I'll be home for Christmas---just kidding!!

This blog is going to be short as I am so beyond depressed. I spent almost 12 hours with 2 cancelled flights at the airport today...

Portland does not like Christmas I decided. Needless to say, i will , in fact, NOT be going home for Christmas and being with my family on Christmas for the first time in YEARS.

I am really bummed. The first opening flight is of course the day after...I am going to spend more time trying to get different flights. I need to go. I have another crying session coming on.....

I'll be home for Christmas!!!

Christmas is basically here....My wonderful sister-in-law bought Andy a dress for Christmas and we are so in love with it!! She is so cute---isn't she? I am not sure what her deal is with her hand in her mouth.!!!
We are getting so excited to go to Oregon for Christmas. The entire family (minus the missionary---love you Elder Probert). It is going to be a blast.
I am going to be in Oregon for almost a month!

Because of that, I have no idea if I will be able to blog or not...
So---to everyone out there....We Wish You All a Very Merry Christmas!!! We hope you have a Happy Holiday.

We are so grateful for what Christmas really stands for. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, being brought to the world and the wonderful life he lead and the way he made it possible for us to all be together forever.

I heard that people are now pushing that we say HAPPY HOLIDAYS not referring to a Merry Christmas in our schools, in our place of work, etc. How terribly sad is that? I cannot even fathom the world if that is what becomes of it. How can you take Christ out of CHRISTMAS!!???

We hope you all reflect this time on the importance of family, of giving and of the true meaning and purpose of Christmas...that being the birth of our Saviour. Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

So gross

WARNING--This posts contains graffic, gross info! I can't even look at it

What in the world are you looking at you ask??? I don't even know how to explain it.

There are a few ways to get rid of WARTS--freeze them, or have the doctor put some kind of solution on them that makes them explode into a ball of puss!!!

Why would someone choose the ball of puss and pain you ask? I have been asking that question myself and still am not coming up with a good answer. The doc may have suggested that it helps remove the warts better---we shall see...

A few months ago I did this "procedure" in the exact spot...Somehow, it made a RING of warts in the spot. So, I went to my brother-in-law the doctor to consult on wart removal.

Steve came with as he had some warts he needed removing, and I had a few others on my leg. He put a solution on it and it seemed fine, until we woke up the next morning to puss and pain...It has been a few days and isn't as big, but is still there...

In her momma's pearls...and some more fun pics...

Posted by PicasaWhenever I go to put on any kind of jewlery, I have a fun shadow follow me. She has to get in my jewelry ( and I really don't have much) and put it on.

So, I put on this beaded necklace and she wears it every day and doesn't touch it. If I try to take it off, I am in BIG trouble. I love it. Love it. Love it.

I was feeding her a turkey caserol the other night...She has NEVER fallen asleep at the dinner table. I am so glad I captured this on film. I think it is so precious. I was busting after the fact...
