Merry Christmas!

I am having a great time at home. I am glad I called off this week of work. It feels like a vacation. And I have had plenty of time to spend with family and friends. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I sure did. My grandparents came down Christmas Eve as always. The candelight service at my church was really nice this year. Denise woke me up at 6:45 Christmas morning so we could open presents. My housemates will be happy to know I got the Apples to Apples party crate which includes two expansion packs. I should mention that Denise got an I-pod and a cell phone. I still think 11 years old is too young for a cell phone, but I guess it is a new generation now. All her friends have one too. I did not get mine until I was 20! And I still don't have an I-pod, but I said I would rather have money.

The day after Christmas I spent three hours in a David's Bridal to help Vicki with her wedding dress shopping, along with her mom, Kim, and Gill. She ended up buying her dress so it was a successful trip. Her dress is really pretty..but that's all I will say in case Toby happens to find this site. And now my friend Jennilee is engaged as well. Her boyfriend of six years finally propsed Christmas Eve and I am happy for them!

Tuesday I made the trip to Abby Mo's house and got to see my Bluffton friends which was nice (Abby, Laura, Bridget, and Abby of course). Laura looks pregnant now! I hope we can keep up seeing eachother every few months, but it is getting harder with everyone spreading out. Rebekah we missed you! If only Bangladesh wasn't half way across the world!

Yesterday I spent way too many hours in a mall. Easton during the day with Denise and later I went to Tuttle. If you take away all the people and long lines, it would not have been that bad. I have to admit I still enjoy shopping for myself and finding good sales. It's just something I can't do often, which is a good thing I think. Last night I saw Memoirs of a Geisha. I thought it was a very good movie. I realized that in the past four months, I have only seen three movies in a theatre. That is quite an accomplishment for me!

I am going back to Louisville Monday evening. So I have a few more days to enjoy at home, but they will go fast.

I'm so happy that you guys are getting together. Even if I'm not there now, when I get back it will be a tradition that I can just jump back into.
