Merry Christmas Eve!

I hope you're relaxing and have some fun plans for the day. Me? I'm at work. Annnnd it is super slow because all of our customers are closed today. Since I got here an hour and 45 minutes ago, the phone has rang ONCE. And it was Jerad....

I shouldn't complain though. We are working today but have the entire next week off. So, 10 days off all together. I was pretty stressed about being at work when there is so much to do to get ready for Christmas, and camping, and all those other little last minute things. Oh hello laundry! But it's alright because I have a great husband and wonderful mother-in-law who are going to be at our house today working on those last minute baking and packing things that I can't do. Jerad is cleaning and packing the car, then they are making our breakfast potatoes for camping, fresh squeezed OJ and cinnamon roll dough for tomorrow morning and dinner for tonight. I'm pretty lucky. All I need to do when I get home is pack our clothes, wrap a few more presents, and write out thank you cards.

Tonight we are going to a Christmas Eve service and Jerad's dad is going to be singing a few songs. After that Jerad's parents and brother are all coming back to our house for a taco dinner and opening presents. I'm excited. I love it when people open presents. I've been trying to get Jerad to open his for about 2 weeks now, ever since I put it under the tree. He won't go for it. Killjoy:) I'm also so happy it worked out that we get to spend time with both of our families before we leave for Yosemite. I wasn't sure if it would work out since we're going on Christmas this year.

Joey is going to come camping with us now which will be fun. He hasn't been to Yosemite for a long time and him and Addy are little buddies so it will just be one big family trip!It will be nice to have another guy there to help with the manly things like starting fires and chopping wood and doing dishes in frozen water too. Okay, that last one may have been a fantasy on my part:)

Now we just have to figure out the logistics of getting 4 people, 3 large dogs, a ton of firewood and food and all our camping stuff to fit into one vehicle. Hmmm. Also the minute detail that we don't have enough food since we added a person... Addy eats like an ant so maybe we'll be fine in the food department actually. Oh well, I'm at work so I don't have to deal with it right?
