Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Christmas thus far.
Mine has been really great with the exception that I'm sick. (bleh!) Last night my voice sounded like I had been smoking for 50 years and today I have the most disgusting runny nose and sinuses that are killing me...but nothing can ruin Christmas for me!

Last night I ran media for the candlelight services at church and after that Alex and I hurried up to Hollywood. We spent Christmas Eve at my sister's new house. There I received the BEST Christmas gift from Alex and my parents...an iPhone! Yay! I can join the club now. ;-) 

And I surprised Alex with three lumps of coal...and a Verbzilla (it's a guitar thing). The look on his face was priceless.

After finishing up at my sister's we headed over to spend time with Alex's mom and her boyfriend. This is where we got another great present, Guitar Hero III for the Wii! Granted, we don't have a Wii yet...but we're working on it. 

Lucky for us, my cousin has a Wii and he brought it over so we could play. All my cousins took a turn on Guitar Hero...even my dad had a go at it.
I hope everyone has been enjoying the company of family and friends. I really appreciated being around family this year. Usually I'm a bit on the antisocial side (surprise, surprise)...but seeing as I'll be moving away in about 6 months, I'm taking time to appreciate them and spend time with them. Family is a precious blessing from God. As cheesy as that may sound...

Take it from someone soooooo far away from home (me!).. you won't realize how precious family really is till you're miles away from them.... friends come and go, but your family will always be there for you no matter what. I'm glad you had a great time with your family. Wish mine was here.. :.(
