You can tell how exciting our life has been since I haven't updated our blog in a while. I'm being sarcastic, we really haven't done anything too exciting to blog about lately, but it was Christmas last week and I think there was plenty of excitement to go around. 

We spent Christmas Eve with Shamu and friends at Sea World. It was a gorgeous 75 degrees with a slight breeze unlike the snow they were getting back home.  I can't say I'm not jelous though because I've been asking for a white christmas my whole life and the one Christmas I'm not there he brings it to me. Ugh! Oh well, we had fun anyways.   

Christmas morning was a lot better this year with Mylee because she actually knew how to be excited about presents and unwrapping them.  It was so cute to watch her unwrap present after present after present after . . . . you get the idea. She was pretty spoiled.  We all were.  
Even though our family wasn't there we still had a wonderful Christmas and thank you family for all the presents.  

Later on Christmas Day we joined a few other families for a Christmas dinner.  It was nice not being totally alone on Christmas. Most of all it was nice to spend time with Austin since he's been so busy lately.  He's learning a lot though.

Oh ya, did I mention we pretty much know where we're going for residency?   INDIANA!!!  It was our first choice and Austin was their first pick so we're house shopping.  I'm so excited.  
I hope everyone else had a Merry Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Just a little sample of what all you Gmas and Gpas missed out on, sorry.

Sea World

We live exactly 1.5 miles away from one of the coolest place on earth, Sea World.  This is especially fun because Mylee absolutely LOVES fishes.  That was one of her first words, actually.  So for Christmas we decided to get season passes and hopefully we'll get to use them quite a bit.  Since this was her first time, I don't think Mylee really knew what to expect, but after she fed her first dolphin I think she was pretty stoked.  I have to tell you, I think I'm more excited then Mylee.  I had so much fun and I can't wait to go back.

O' Christmas Tree

So even though I sold all of my Christmas deco when we moved, I absolutely insisted that we at least put up a Christmas tree.  So we found a cute little 4 ft tree and made our own decorations.  It's very simple but it brings the spirit of Christmas into our home. Have  a wonderful Holiday Season.
