Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas weekend, my friends!  We are in balmy Indiana for Christmas (highs in the upper 40s - no complaints from this girl!) with Steve's family this weekend.  Yesterday was full of present opening, "A Christmas Story" watching, cooking/eating delicious meals and catching up with everyone.  It was a jam-packed day!  Today, we are off to downtown Indy with our nieces for some post-Christmas bonding time before I head back to Dallas on Sunday :)

A birthday weekend

My mom's birthday was this past week and, in my family, birthdays are a big deal.  Luckily, my mom's big day was on Sunday this year, so we got to celebrate all weekend!

The birthday festivities began in an extra-festive manner with a Santa Run on Saturday morning.  I've always wanted to do one of these "fun runs" and when I found a Groupon discount price, I got the entire family (dogs included) to agree to do it with me.  I've never seen so many Santas in once place!

Early Christmas Present

This year, Christmas came early in our house - Steve got a new job!  His first day was on Monday and he is loving it so far.

This year has been one of many transitions.  Selling our house, moving to Dallas, learning a new town, doing long-distance for a few months, taking the Texas bar, my new job... and now Steve's.  It is perfect for him, and better than even what we had been praying for.  In His typical fashion, God showed up big time and blew us out of the water with this job.
