Christmas at home

Since we're going to be traveling for Christmas this year, we decided to open our gifts to each other this past weekend. Micah loved his new rug with roads on it and his sidewalk chalk! We could hardly get him away from it when it was time to come inside. We had Dan's directing class over for dinner last night --Grandma Inouye's spaghetti sauce was a hit! Dan will be grading finals furiously until the day we leave for Minnesota, but hopefully after that things will be more relaxing. In the new year, I promise to post pictures of Micah dressed up in his ring-bearer outfit for Josh and Amanda's wedding this weekend. Congratulations! And of course we'll have lots of Delaware photos too since we'll be there for Christmas. Until then, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Micah is enjoying his playdough! We had to get it out three time this weekend. Paaay-dooo! Micah's recovering from a nasty ear infection, but other than that, it was a nice weekend. Dan and I got to go to a banquet and Christmas concert at OBU. I'm done with class for the semester so now it's time to focus on the holidays: Cookies baked: check. Presents sent: check. Cards signed: check. Bags packed: ummm...working on it.

We had a great time over Thanksgiving with friends in Corinth, MS, our old stomping grounds. We stayed with Miss June and Mr. Glenn for the weekend and enjoyed dinner at Tommy's house with about 15 other people! Although Micah decided that it would be more fun to throw the food than eat it (I disagree!), we still had a nice night. Micah got to watch parts of the Wizard of Oz for the first time and spend quality time with Boo, Tommy's dog. There were many people we wanted to see and we didn't get to all of them, but I'm glad we were able to go even for a short trip! We're looking forward to the Christmas holiday and Dan's brother Josh's and Amanda's upcoming wedding in whcih Micah is a ring bearer! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday too!
