Christmas is coming up! Kyle and I will be leaving on Monday for Arizona. Yay! We can't wait to be with family and enjoy the warmth :)
We hope you all travel safe and have a wonderful Christmas!
I will get back to you later on how it went.

Soo...I completely forgot to tell you all about Thanksgiving and what we did and how it was. As we were driving down there, approximately 2ish hours to go, I fell asleep for a moment and woke up with a dry throat. Well, at the time, I thought (and was hoping) it was a dry throat, but when morning came along the throat was worse and that was how the trip began...I got even worse as the days went and ended up with a really bad sore throat (worst I had ever had before) and I had a fever. The sore throat eventually went away and was replaced with a cough.........which I still have, although not as bad. But yeah, it was kind of a bummer week. I had hardly any appetite, which is no fun on Thanksgiving, but it was nice to see family at least. Too bad, though, I wasn't able to hold any of the babies :( I was pretty upset about that. I did bring my camera, but I was too sick to take pictures. For most of the week I was in bed trying to get better. It was a good thing that I was able to take lots of naps during the day, though, because at night I wasn't able to sleep well because either the sore throat or the cough woke me up....there's something about at night that seems to make things worse, huh? I am not a fan. Anyway, Kyle and I will be returning to Arizona for Christmas within the next week (hopefully we'll be leaving by Monday) and I hope to be able to catch some fun pictures of the trip so I have something to return with :)
Merry Christmas and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and travel safe!!!

Isn't it amazing how one person can change your life so drastically? Ever since Kyle came into my life, he has been such a great example to me in so many ways.
First, he has such knowledge of the church and he has such a strong testimony of the truthfulness of it. He has taught me so much in the scriptures and of the gospel itself. And I am so grateful for his patience with me, for I am not the quickest to learn (I am a very visual person to begin with), but he has helped me see so much more and has helped me learn so much more of the gospel.
The second thing is, he is such an intelligent person and he may disagree with me, but he works so hard for what he wants and I know that will lead him to success in the future. It amazes me how well he does in school, and I am so proud of how hard he works each day.
Kyle has led me to be more patient, loving and selfless. He has also helped me grow and have more confidence in myself.
I love Kyle so much and I always will, no matter what. He means the world to me.
So, thank you Kyle.

The Dishwasher.

Hey! So I completely forgot to tell you about the dishwasher..WE FINALLY GOT IT!! :) And the dishwasher is wonderful! The only thing that confuses me is the silverware rack...The picture on the instructions say they go on the door of the dishwasher (even though there is no slot for it, it just sits there), and I tried it and it doesn't close. So, I tried fitting it in the actual dishwasher on the bottom rack and there isn't really a slot for it, it just sits there and is awkward and all...and it bugs me, haha. But hey, we have a dishwasher and I am so happy about that! Yay! :)

About the dishwasher...

So...the Home Depot guys came, but they couldn't install it because the water line wasn't shutting off. Which means, we have to get a plummer to fix the water line so it can shut off so they can install the dishwasher. Lovely. I waited up for this...And now I can't wash my dishes in the dishwasher for another least.

Home Depot

Sooo...I am up right now (at 6:55am) because the Home Depot guys are coming to replace our dishwasher. Now, before when they called to confirm the time, they gave us a window time that they'd be coming and they said between the times of 7 and 11 (or was it 10?). For most places, they wouldn't come till the very end of that window...but....of course they come now. I received a call at 6:30 in the freaking morning from them about how they are on their way and should be getting here at about 7am..this surprised me. Ugh...I made Kyle not stay up since he hasn't gotten much sleep tonight to begin with (poor guy) and that since I wasn't sleeping well anyway that I might as well wait for them to come. Man, I can't wait to take a nap later...I'll let you know how the dishwasher is...probably.
