this is what we've been up to...

Wow, guess who hasn't posted for a long long time? Well, that would be me... and Aaron for that matter. Remember how it is now December 17th and Christmas will be here in 2 minutes? Yeah, I remember too.

So, why have we not posted for so long? Well, Aaron took a leave of absence because that thing called dental school was calling his name...and now he is proud to announce that finals are over with. What has he spent his days doing since this past Thursday? We'll never know...but he sure is enjoying it. Oh wait, I know what he's done ONE of the days. Friday was spent preparing a turkey for our ward party. What a beaut! (I have to say, I didn't have a lot of confidence in his turkey skills...but alas, he proved me wrong).


Oh, Aaron has also been touring with the Babcock duet... look how pleasant his face is here.


Me? Oh, well, you know... stuff. Like this:








you know, things like these holiday cards and tags for all my many customers (ok, only a handful this year...but it was by choice). I haven't taken pictures of the "finally finished" stockings (three years in the making) or the wreath I created OR the printed Christmas cards. You'll totally be impressed, I know it. ha! totally. CRAZY month, my friends. Crazy month. BUT I LOVE IT! one of these days I'll take pictures so you'll believe me that I haven't been sitting on my rump the entire month (and no, I didn't mean to rhyme).
We leave this week to UTAH! Who's excited? me. real excited. Hopefully we'll post again soon. No promises though, especially to my sister Becca AKA the "wah wah whiner" that we hadn't posted for a long time. Happy now, becc? good. oh, and Merry Christmas.

oh bless you! my thrill was just so great when I saw that turkey, and i knew it was a new post. not to hurt the baby's feelings but I've seen the picture lots and lots of times, as have all my room mates and friends. Ps I showed my room mate your new pictures and she is using one of my cards to send to her boyfriend's family. She was saying these could be a hit in Japan, which is why she thinks her boyfriend's Japanese family will like them because they are so simple but really cute simple, ya know. It is just great. I am excited for the thriving business.
