I have learned a few things this holiday. First, I never ever ever want to work another holiday in retail. Done. Second, what is the point in stressing over all the prep work for holiday if I don't take the time to enjoy my family and friends... the very people all the prep work is for? I will not stress as much next year. If things get done, great... if not, oh well :) And lastly, I need to give more next year. We didn't do sub for santa this year, which sucked. Next year, we are doing a smaller Christmas for each other so we can give more. Oh yes, one more thing... I will never yell at another Wal Mart lady as long as I live :)

This holiday was crazy and unfortunately I forgot my camera everywhere we went so I didn't get a ton of pictures. First of all, my mom called me on Christmas Eve and told me that they had a 5 hour layover... in the Salt Lake airport! Brian and I blew off both of our family Christmas parties and drove up to Salt Lake to have dinner with my mom, brother, and sister. I haven't seen my mom for a holiday since I was 16 so it was amazing! Then on Christmas day we got to talk to Riley on Skype! It was so good to see him and talk to him. I just love him and the little goofy goober he's turned in to. We had a great Christmas spending time with family and a fun New Years spending time with friends.
