At Last....

It's official.....We are all on break until January 4th!! WooHoo!! I decided to teach intercession for the first week of break because it's really easy money and only 4 hours a day. The only downside is that I have to teach all of the kids that failed their classes. It's basically for credit recovery, so that they can pass their grade. Today was the last day, and fortunately all of the students passed their finals!
Now I finally have some time to spend with Hunter and get some things done at home. Christmas is just around the corner and my parents and my sister are coming to my house on Christmas Day! I'm so excited! This is going to be a great Christmas. :)
Keith is doing better. The staples were taken out of his belly on Monday. He was told to take things easy for the next week or two so that the incision doesn't open up. He decided to clean the garage yesterday and I think he did a little too much. We thought we had a catastrophe but I think it will be okay. So far so good! He needs to learn to listen to the doctor! :)

Christmas, Christmas Time is Here!!!

Last years tree.......
This years tree! Same ornaments and everything!

This weekend we finally had a chance to get some stuff done around the house and decorate the Christmas Tree!! We ended up going to Fry's and buying a tree and it is beautiful! We usually go cut one down from somewhere in Springerville, but this year Keith was busy elk hunting and we never had a chance. I love this tree so much! Keith and I are in disagreements now about our future trees! I want one from Fry's every year, but he still thinks we need to get one off the mountain! Hunter and I decorated the house and then the tree. He had fun. He kept hanging the ornaments in the same spot on the tree, but he is a really good help. Here is a picture of our beautiful tree. I am also putting up a picture of our tree from last year, just so everyone can see the difference. It's hilarious! :)

We went up to Springerville for Thanksgiving. Keith was elk hunting most of the time, but it was really nice to see the family. We got to stay at Mimi and Papa's house and spend some time with them. Keith ended up getting a spike so we have some awesome elk meat to last us all year!

When we got home from Springerville, Keith found out his belly button became infected again. We were really worried, seeing as he has had this problem for 2 years! We thought it was taken care of. Keith's surgeon he had before lives in Prescott, so we needed to find a new surgeon. Keith called about 20 different surgeons and finally one called and told him to come in immediately. Keith ended up having surgery the next day, getting half of his belly button removed, along with the abcess. We are pretty positive this doctor finally took care of the problem! Keith now has 15 staples and a 5 inch incision in his stomach! But he is doing good and feeling much better.
