Oh, holidays

So school ended last week for me. Whew! I've gotten 2 of my grades back and am waiting for the other 2. So far they're o.k.. I'll admit I was a little disappointed about one class. :( I'll get over it. Ever since they've been done, I've ben busting my butt trying to get all of the holiday stuff done that I'd been putting off while studying for finals.

I sent out our christmas cards. finally.

Christmas cards

Merry Christmas, peeps. I'm hoping these babies make their way to you before the holiday. If not, consider them new years cards.

... and presents for out of town relatives.

In-laws present

Charlie's birthday was yesterday. Which sucks. If you have a birthday super-close to the holidays or have someone close to you who does you know what I mean. It sucks for him because he always gets those Happy Birthday/Merry Christmas presents and it sucks for me because I have to think of awesome presents for 2 holidays within 1 week.

All he wanted for his birthday was an iPod touch. I didn't get him an iPod touch for his birthday. He wasn't happy. So I figured I'd make up for it by getting it for him for Christmas. He was with me when I got it. Ever since we started living together we've had no surprises when it comes to presents. Oh well, at least it means we get what we want.

Merry Christmas, baby.

Happy Birthday!
happy b-day banner I made for C.

Happy Bday, C!
the presents he didn't like. :(

Tonight we're hanging out and tomorrow we're hitting the slopes again. I got a helmet! So hopefully I won't be as scared about smashing into a tree. Or get left on a mountain ... again.

My parents are coming for the holidays. So excited to have family here for Christmas and we're bringing my parents and sister over to some friends for new years. Although, I have a feeling my parents will be heading the home before midnight.

If you have any tips for hosting houseguests, let me know!! I'm trying to make their stay as comfortable & easy as possible.

P.S. I had a job interview today & got offered the position! I'm hoping everything else falls into place. This is the third time I've been offered something and I'm really hoping it all works out. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I love the way you wrapped the presents and I love the picture of Henry! R got an ipod touch for his birthday last year, now this year he's probably getting a cool new phone that can do everything and I'll be inheriting the touch. Our boys and their toys...
