Happy Merry Christmas Eve! :)

We got here safely, but I just did not want to pull my computer out last night.

I think I got everything done yesterday – the morning was so busy!

  • I wrapped all the presents and bagged other things
  • Made tags + tied on ribbons
  • Cleaned the house (with Nick’s help)
  • Packed my bag for this weekend

Once Nick got back from doing sound stuff, we heated up some of the leftover french onion soup and I had some broccoli with it before we got on the road.

The drive here was uneventful, thankfully, and we got here just in time to eat some soup and cornbread.


Today has been exciting!!!  :)

Nick and I got our Christmas present to each other, and since the oatmeal I had for breakfast and leftover soup + cornbread I had for lunch don’t compare, I’ll just post some pictures of our new family member.



This is Maggie – our 11 week old Brittany puppy.


We went out to look at some puppies this morning, not knowing what ages they had or if we would find “the one” today, but she definitely found us.


Needless to say, other than a trip to Petsmart…playing, cuddling, and taking her out to go to the bathroom is all we’ve done today.

We’ve got dinner in the oven and will be eating and heading to a Christmas Eve service at Nick’s parents’ church tonight – and then home for more puppy play!
