As you can tell, James lasted about 5 minutes before wanting to end. After Thanksgiving, we came back to Rexburg so Dan could finish the semester. We are so blessed that Dan did well on his finals and passed all his classes. I'm so proud of him and what he has done. He had a really, really tough load this last semester and barely made it out in one piece. After the crazy semester, we headed up northwest to Washington for Christmas break. It was 3 weeks of bliss. We played many games, had many shopping trips, bowling, ice skating (which I really enjoyed) and all this was mixed in with, of course, our awesome friend sickness. It's pretty much inevitable to not get sick with as many people we had in a close space. That aside we had many laughs and many memories made. I can't tell you how blessed I am to have married into such an amazing family. We already miss being able to see everyone. There were many pictures that were taken but I forgot to get them from my mother-in-law.
So now we're back in freezing temperatures (it's 36 degrees right now and we consider that warm for us) and back to the school schedule. I have to say I miss vacation because vacation meant Dan was home to hangout with and to help with James. He is such a daddy's boy it's not even funny. He's growing so much and it's crazy to think in 8 months he'll be a year old. I only have 8 month left of a baby. Besides that sad realization, 2013 will be filled with again many changes. We say.... bring it on!!!
