Merry Christmas

 Love, Andrew & Krystal

 oh my goodness, I miss him. *tear*
Luckily I can watch him on the kennel's webcam, I am one of those mothers.
(If you would like to be one of those mothers too you can watch him here.)

Aaron and I went snowmobiling for Christmas Eve. This may have to be a new tradition.
He brought 2 of his friends because I can't keep up. 

It's around 6 am here. Why am I not asleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in my head?
I'm still on Cleve time, which means I fall asleep at promptly 8:30 pm and wake up around 6 am.
My Grandpa Gardner and I would get along very well right about now.

Merry Christmas everyone. We love you and are grateful for the most fabulous family and friends.
And let's not forget why we really celebrate...

 Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

If you're having a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit watch this

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. John 20:31

Christmas time in the Cleve

I just got a phone call from Andrew saying that he can't leave school. It took him and Adam an hour to get 3 blocks so they eventually turned around and went back to school to study for another exam. He took his Finance exam today, 3 more to go!!! Almost there sweetie!

We decked the halls and stayed indoors.

Luckily I didn't have work today. If I did, I probably would have quit. It's crazy outside. We got 10 inches today and it's still coming down. Not my idea of a good time. But it is gorgeous and looks like Christmas!

Let's hope Andrew makes it home to sleep in his own bed tonight.
Until next time I'll keep the Pandora Christmas blaring and warm up some cocoa.

One of these nights we're going to see this

if you can't tell that's a leg lamp in the window, the authentic Christmas Story house is a few miles away from us. BUMPUSES!!!

a friend?

meet Bear
"hi Bear"

tonight Adam aka The Army Guy, one of Andrew's good friends in his program, came over to study. He brought with him Bear, a 130 pound Anatolian. I am in love with Bear.

He was not so in love with Kipling.

"How have I been reduced to this?"

The Gentlemen's Club

It was nonstop torture for Bear, poor guy, he was so sweet to Kipling though.
"hey Bear, wanna see my room? wanna play with my toys? I know a really cool game, wanna play? do you want to see my bone? do you like rawhide? I've got like a thousand rawhide bones. wanna see?"
"please get me out of here, I'll do anything."

eventually the homework ended and Bear escaped,
Kipling immediately crashed and is counting the days until another friend/victim arrives.

until then you'll just have to deal with us buddy, sorry.

I would like to see one of these under the tree in about 20 days...sweetie, d'ya get that?

just sayin'
