'Tis the Season

Anyone that knows me well, knows that I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS! My favorite time of year is from Halloween to New Years Eve. I love the parties, the music, the decorations (of course!) and most of all the spirit of the season. Everyone just seems to be happier and nicer in general. I start my Christmas music now the week of Thanksgiving, and that's all I listen to until after Christmas. It drives Jason a little bonkers, but that's ok, haha! I've got the house almost fully decorated, and I'm so excited this year about our tree. We bought it for close to 75% off last year the week after Christmas and it's pre-lit with white lights. I love it! I also found some great deals at Home Depot last year on Christmas decor, (thanks DEZ!). It's so fun to see what I can find right after Christmas for the following year.

Ang and the kids have been in town, and we have had such a fun time! She took some pics of me and J last week, and I really appreciate her. I should have our Christmas card mailed out in a few days, and every year I look forward to everyone's Christmas cards and pictures.

This will be the first Christmas without my grandma. I have missed her so much, and I think about her all the time. She is one of my most favorite people in the world. She always made Christmas special for us kids. I will be missing her terribly.

My anesthesia lab is almost over for this semester, and it's been very interesting. For the most part it's been great, but we have a few "cry babies" in the class. One in particular - SO DRAMATIC! Just buck up, and take it in the mouth! haha. They have to give each other injections every Wed. and it takes me back to my days in school. What a time! The semester is over in January, and then my little babies will be in their LAST semester before they graduate as hygienists! I think this class will always be special to me because I started with them on their first day on my first day as an instructor. We will be welcoming a brand new class in Feb. to start it all over again. Wow!

I hope everyone is well and that this Christmas season will be happy and bright for all!
