Christmas gift exchange.

The boys got to open their first Christmas gift of the year when we arrived at our vacation destination last week (I know, I know, I have been slacking). We got lovely gifts from the Harville Hounds, Roscoe and Hannah, we were part of a gift exchange on Jazzi's and we sent our present to two more hound dogs Winston & Amiee, I really hope they like the presents we sent them. ANYWAYS to the present opening!!!! Here are the pictures

They got lovely jackets, squeaky Christmas balls, and a plaid (!) blanket (I love plaid, who woulda guessed?) and I even got Christmas snowmen appetizer cheese knives which are super cute. They and I loved everything, Thank You Harville Hounds!! and Merry Christmas to everyone. I am taking today to see the Nutcracker in Seattle, with my mom, my very favorite.

Books and Moving.

I am moving slower then I thought I would when it come's to my reading list, but I have finished 2 books and am in the middle of 3 more including A Christmas Carol which is helpful in getting me in the holiday spirit. Other than that not much has been going on around here for us, we aren't decorating for Christmas this year we are just preparing for our trek home for Christmas. Once we get back I am excited to say the husband only has 4 more months of school and then we again will be journeying west-ward, very happily. I am ecstatic but it is also a stressful time because of job hunting for both of us and the move. I cannot wait to live in a place with sidewalks again though, I know the boys look forward to that also, though Ernest doesn't know what he's missing Porter definitely does and has been slightly depressed ever since moving to Spokane he was used to two walks a day plus park trips and now he hardly gets any of that. I truly cannot wait.
