Wow another year has come and gone! It's hard to believe. This Christmas was definitely a different experience for us. We decided, since we just purchased our house, we would stay here for Christmas and save our money. This was my first Christmas ever away from my family. Luckily Dave kept me busy so I didn't have time to dwell on it and be sad! Christmas eve is always a huge deal at my house... everyone come over and we play games and eat lots of food, etc, etc. So I probably had the hardest time that day. Dave and I went to Fudruckers with a bunch of other members from our ward, and then a little later that night, we drove around and looked at Christmas lights. Some people are so creative with their decorations! Although we weren't around all of our family, and I got sad when I thought of everyone back home, we still had a good time together! Dave and I decided that we were going to do just little stocking stuffers for each other this year at about a $50 limit. Well I kept to the plan and just got him a couple of gift cards I knew he would like. Then I open my present and he had gotten me a Flip video. He definitely didn't stick to the plan! But I LOVE my gift. It is so nice because it has a USB port built right in the side of it! I can't wait to use it! A little later that day, we went and watch Sherlock Holmes. It was ok, I thought it would be better but it was still good. Dave's parents came into town the day after Christmas. It was so nice to spend time with them. We always get spoiled when they come down. We went shopping, to the movies, and out to eat, to name a few of our ventures while they were here. I was telling Dave that for as long as we've been married, I think that was the most time we've spent with his parents. It was really nice. New Years Eve was fun too. We went to Sugar Land Town Square to celebrate with Greg and Angie. We went and ate a really good restaurant, I think the name was Toisha. Then we listened to a live band and hung out for a while. Around 11pm, we decided to go see our friends Josh and Jacquelyn, who just had a cute little baby boy, and celebrate the New Year with them. We were all talking so much that we missed midnight. We looked at the clock at 12:01! I'm sad that the holidays are coming to an end but Dave and I have had a great time sleeping in and taking it easy!
