Musings from Christmas

Jordan and I were joined this Christmas by Todd !!!!! We had such a good time celebrating Christmas - We watched lots of movies, ate lots of food, and hung out with our friends Kristin and Ryan. Here are some pics of the decor, the friends and the fun... We hope your Christmas was blessed and we are very much looking forward to 2009 and all the wonderful things it will bring!

If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist.
If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer.
But our greatest need was forgiveness, So God sent us a Savior.

Jordan is back ...

...and all is right with the world! After a little delay in Denver, Jordan made it back to Phoenix this morning!! Although we did just fine with this extra-long road trip it sure is nice to have him back home. After I picked him up at the airport we did a little more Christmas shopping, grabbed Chipotle and headed home to Prescott Valley. I made a slight snafoo and missed the turn off I was supposed to make, so we were a little later getting home than we would have liked. Jordan will tell you a much different story ;) Needless to say we are glad to be back together again and have a busy week ahead!

Cadillac of a Coffee Pot

My Mom and Dad were nice enough to order me this coffee pot while they were here over Thanksgiving! I LOVE IT. They have it and so do Jim and Jill and my Aunt Gail also. The grinder sound like a helicopter is landing on my kitchen counter, but I can get over it. Thanks again Mom and Dad, it is absolutely awesome!

Tree is Up

Let the fesivities begin! The addition of a giant TV changed the whole dynamic of our apartment, so I am still finding the perfect place for everything - the Christmas sits right in front of our window so I can see it glimering as I walk up our three flights of stairs after work! Love it!

New Member of our Family

Christmas came early for Jordan and I this year! We knew we wanted to purchase a big TV for Christmas, and thought we would take advantage of the killer Thanksgiving Weekend sales and we scored! Sadly for Jordan, he left today for a 14-day road trip. Don't worry Jordan, I will take good care of the TV while you're gone ;)

Thanksgiving '08

Jordan and I were lucky enough to host our third Thanksgiving Feast - This year was especially wonderful having Todd come over from LA. We ate too much, played games, went to Sundog games, shopped, and ate some more!

Here's the pictoral run-down :

Dinner around our "dining room table" SO GOOD!


Officially 24

I officially turned 24 on the 23rd of Nov and have yet to blog about it! Thank you all so much for the calls and texts and whatnot, I truly felt special! Jordan arrived home from a road trip just in time to take a nap and then be my chauffeur for the day - We went shopping all around town and then to TX Roadhouse for dinner! To commence the evening we had some friends over to play Scene It and watch you-tube clips from So You Think You Can Dance ;) In this picture I am wearing the Awesome Aunt sticker that came as part of the b-day card from Max and Ben!!
