How exciting that we will now have two temples in Provo! We lived just blocks away from the old Provo Tabernacle and woke up in the middle of the night when we heard the fire trucks going to put out the fire. Today was the first time I saw a picture of what it will look like. Everything happens for a reason, I'm excited to go there soon!
This year i did the 12 days of Christmas to Chris. I wrote him notes on felt candy canes and hid them everyday for him to find. I also loved us doing service which really made us think of others than ourselves. I got shopping done during Black Friday so it was wonderful to do things for others. We celebrated Chris' bday starting the 23rd. We watched Mission Impossible and really liked it. On 24th Chris opened presents and we went to his families house for his favorite cream of broccoli soup and I didn't get a chance to make a cake so I got cupcakes In the shape of a wreath.
Later that day we went for dinner at Tucanos and played Wii when we got home (Chris got one for his bday). Before we went to bed we watched Luke 2, opened pjs, and relaxed.
Christmas we got some great gifts and went to church. We had an amazing message from our bishop. Later we went to Chris' parents house and had a great time with everyone especially our cute little nieces and nephews. This is the only pic we have from that day.
This week we are at my parents house and have a bunch of fun things planned.
We are so blessed. We have so much and always need to be grateful for what we have been given. Everday in December we would say something we were grateful for or how we served others that day. What a wonderful way to remember our Savior and serve Him. It's almost the start of a brand new year, so many opportunities in front of us to be there for others and think less of ourselves.

Go to the mall (its been bad everyday but the 23rd was a nightmare)
Make your spouses bday cake.... Thank goodness I avoided that things get so busy the last minute.
Oh, then go to Target to get your spouses bday cake (just as bad, they don't have any birthday cakes, just Christmas ones)
Remember someone on your list you overlooked (i swear I went though my list of ppl but guess not)
Finding out you should get something for coworkers last second
Finding out my sister took one of my receipts to Michigan so I can't return something
Try to make personalized Christmas tags for every gift... Really stupid idea, it won't work
Parking ANYWHERE (such a joke, last year I got yelled at in the parking lot at the mall)
Try to attempt a last minute Christmas decor... It will not turn out the way you like in time for Christmas
Remember you need to get the little things for your traditions (ornaments, pjs)
Oh, and I totally forgot about stockings, but its ok, we did that the other day
To try to wrap Christmas presents w duct tape... Please don't ask, idk what came over me
Doing the 12 days of christmas to your spouse (which I really liked doing (but forgetting to do it haha)
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you can laugh about the things that came up for us. We ate doing well and are excited to celebrate our second Christmas together. Happy Holidays!
