Christmas just came and went like that. How come the holidays are always like that? It's not fair! My parents flew into town for a week and we celebrated Christmas in the little yellow brick house. My work is possibly the coolest ever and gave everyone the week of Christmas off. Gosh, I lucked out working for such a fantastic company. The family all drove home, Christmas decorations are packed away, and Ryan and I are back to work. Life feels so quiet and calm, although I don't mind after the crazy month of December.
Currently I'm pulling some long hours at work to help prepare for our next semester of students this upcoming Monday and Ryan is choosing a surgeon to perform his umbilical hernia surgery (hopefully) this next week. The poor guy has been waiting 2 months for the operation, and we are excited to finally get him feeling back to his normal self.
My parents brought the snow home from Utah...this is Southern California and I am STUNNED! Anyways, I am looking forward to 2015 because of all the fun stuff we already have in store. We're hoping that Ryan's recovery will go smooth so we can go to our niece's baby blessing in February (in Portland) and we are making plans for a family trip to Hawaii after my brother Evan comes home from his LDS mission in Mexico. Then Ryan will be back at BYU for Spring term, the same time as Evan! This year has a lot to look forward to, and I'm more than stoked :)
