Christmas 2007

This year Christmas was kinda busy. I didnt get to do Christmas cards this year because of the busyness. I did get all my Christmas shopping done by Christmas Eve though. :)

My best friend and her husband came into town before Christmas from Tulsa. They were visiting Ben's family for Christmas. I spent some time with her Friday afternoon after work. It was a good time. We drove down to the Concord Mall to meet my sister because she was working. We did a little Christmas shopping at the Mall. The Mall really wasn't as crowded as you would think the weekend before Christmas would be.

Saturday, Steve and I did some shopping at the UP Mall and Concord and it was a little busier. Sunday night, we did the gift exchange with my immediate family. My parents got Steve and I a grill for Christmas. Yeah. Once we get it set up...party at our place. :)
I got to spend some time with Tabby and Shere and their families on Monday for our gift exchange. Shere got me and Steve a "First Christmas" Christmas ornament.
On Christmas Eve, Steve and I drove to Wisconsin for the extended family Christmas after work. I didnt have to work but Steve and Erin did. Christmas with the family was pretty traditional. It started with dinner, then singing Happy Birthday to my cousin (his birthday is Christmas Eve) then it was present time. Which is always fun.

Moving Right Along

Steve and I are finally safe and sound in our new apartment. We have the greatest friends ever that helped us move. We are still unpacking though. We worked all weekend trying to get all of our stuff out of boxes. We got our cable and internet hooked up last week.
It has been a pretty busy few weeks for us. Last weekend was Steve's family Christmas. We got to see all his brothers and neices and nephews. It was a good time. I wish I would have taken pictures, but the battery on my camera is dead and I can't find the charger. :0(

Hopefully, we wont be living out of boxes for much longer. I am really looking forward to when I can walk through the apartment and not run into stuff. The kitchen is almost done. I was actually able to cook in the kitchen this weekend. Steve is finishing up the cabinet that is making this week. He is building us a new cabinet and some more counter space because there isn't very much right now. Once that is finished the kitchen will probably come together pretty fast.
