Lately, especially since it is Christmas, I have been feeling overwhelmed by how blessed we are! Kurtis and I have the best families in the world, we have great friends, good jobs, we have everything we could ask for and more. I love this time of year, (except maybe the mall parking lot and all of University Parkway!), I love Christmas music, Christmas lights and being with family so much. I love the opportunity we have to think about the Savior and how much he and Heavenly Father love us. I can't even express how grateful I am for the amazing gift of the atonement. I am so so so grateful for the knowledge that whenever I am completely overwhelmed and stressed about whatever it may be I can pray and I instantly feel better. Again, just so blessed. I don't think I say that I appreciate it enough. With this really big event coming up in our lives I am so grateful for everything that we have and that we are going to be blessed to have a baby girl come into our lives. I am so thankful for an amazing husband who I know is going to make an amazing father. I can't wait for the next step!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I realize I have been a total slacker of a blogger lately. And you know what, Im not even going to apologize. :) It is pretty crazy how busy things have been. To give you a little example...we decorated our house on December 1st for Christmas and everything got done but the decorating of the tree. Last year when we took the decorations down we noticed that half the lights on our prelit tree were out and we didn't want to deal with it then so we decided to wait until this year. Much to Kurtis's dismay it took him about 6 hours to figure out which lights needed to be replaced and restrung. He was not very happy about it but when all was said and done it look great. Now if we could just find the time to decorate the tree! Seriously, its kind of ridiculous how busy we have been. We go to work throughout the week and come home and it seems like we are immediately off to something else. Oh well, I guess that is how is goes this time of year. We are excited for Christmas and especially excited that both of our schedules for work mean we get home in the early afternoon of Christmas Eve and don't work the rest of the year! That sound so good to me! I'm about fed up with work. My feet hurt after like an hour of flying and I get cranky a lot quicker. But, that said, after talking to my doctor about how long I should and can work I am going to try to make it through most of January. Hopefully I can stick it out for 3 weeks in January. If anyone knows where we can get a money tree then I can stop working now! Yeah, I keep hoping for that but so far to no avail. :) I am so excited to have some time before this baby comes to get the nursery all ready and everything prepared. We can't wait for our little girl to be here!
