Yay! I'll be home in less than 24 hours : ). I am so excited. I miss my family lots and can't wait to be home.

This weekend I watched :

love it. 

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.  ~Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 197

Winter Wonderland

Brrrrrrrrr...Lately it's been cold outside. Despite the snow and the below freezing temperature I love this time of year.

 Reasons I love Christmastime:
~ family
~food (cookies, hot cocoa)
~cheerful people
~ Most importantly people remember the Savior

Finals are here...I can't wait til they are over. 9 days until I go home!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

I can't believe it's December already and that Christmas is less than 3 weeks away!
One week of classes left, two weeks til finals and 18 days until I go home!  I can't wait to see my family and friends back home!
It has been freezing lately, I kinda wish it would snow so it will warm up a little!
I love the Holidays and everything about them! 2009 has been a great year I'm excited to see what 2010 will bring.

Here are some pics of the Mesa, AZ temple Christmas lights. It was absolutely beautiful! I have to admit, I'm a sucker for Christmas lights : )

I love Christmas!
