little updates

My last final is turned in and the last few corrections are being made on the presentation that my group and I are giving this Friday. It's been a long and stressful process but it's almost over!

The last bit of stuff is happening on the house as well. It's looking good and more than likely well be moving in next Friday! Woohoo! I'm ready to be there. I've already had a few dreams of us and baby Dunton in the house.

It rained all day today so I only ventured out briefly to go to the bank. The rest of the day I've been resting, baking/cooking, knitting and listening to Christmas music. I wouldn't mind some snow but you can't have everything.

I had high hopes of sending all kinds of Christmas presents with my sister when she went to MN but the last few weeks with finals and house things and being so exhausted (this baby growing can be tiring work) I haven't gotten anything done. I'll have to mail some things. Does anyone have any ideas for handmade things for a 13 computer game loving boy??

I hope the holiday season is treating everyone well and people are healthy and happy as Christmas approaches.

Catching Up

I cannot believe how time has flown! I got caught up with Thanksgiving and then before I knew it it was December!
We're still in the process of buying a house and although things have been rocky we're trying to be patient and trust that God will work things out for our good and His glory whether we get the house or not.
I have one final left and can't wait until it's over!!! I'm so ready to be done.
Chuck and I made Almond Bark pretzels last night for our home group Christmas party. We had a good time even though the kitchen is small and we kept bumping into each other. Thankfully neither of us were burned during the adventure.
My younger sister, Liz, who is just about through with her first semester of college at UNT, is flying back to MN on the 15th and as the date nears I get more and more nostalgic for Christmas at my parents. They have snow, the traditional Christmas Eve meal and so much of my family. I miss them but am so excited that Chuck and I get to start our own traditions with our child soon. Next Christmas s/he will be 6 months old! AH! I'm always startled by that realization.
I have this vision of us visiting MN next Christmas and some of my friends and family that haven't met Chuck yet will also be meeting our 6 month old! Time sure does fly! Oh course, several of my fellow High School graduates already have kids so it's not entirely out of the ordinary.
On that note, I've got to get going to class, only today and next Friday left!!!
Have a wonderful weekend.
