OH EDWARD!!!!!!!!

So this year for Christmas Cami had my name to buy something for. I was very excited! Cami had asked me one day on the phone what I wanted for Christmas. I replied "Edward in a Red Bow". She just laughed telling me that Jacob and her had found a life size cut out of Edward and Jacob wanted her to get it for me. She asked me what I would do with something like that after a few days...I told her "hang it from my ceilling above my bed and stare at him". :) On Christmas morning I 2 presents under the tree for me from Cami. Present #1 had a magnet and a sticker in it. The sticker reads "Waiting for my SEXY VAMPIRE" and the magnet reads "so there's this little, rainy town called Forks (and I think I kinda wanna live there)". Present #2 had a mug in it that said "I am just a Bella waiting for my Edward". I was so happy! I asked Dad to make me some hot chocolate! And I just have to say that the mug helped it taste even better.

On Friday everyone came over to Mom and Dad's and we opened up more presents. And lo and behold I had a Present #3. Everyone said that I had to open my present last. I was like..hmmm... So at the end after eveyone had a blast at opening their presents and playing with them they all said "Heather it is your turn!!!". So I had to stand up in front of everyone and open my present...

Christmas day was a lot of fun. I came over to mom and dad's (I am dog sitting for my friend Debi) and we opened our presents. I got my very first bicycle ever! I am very excited. I also got a new camera that I am loving taking lots of new pictures with. After presents we got to talk with Amelia. We did a conference call with all of the kids on Skype and lets just say that was very interesting indeed. It was fun to hear her voice. It is amazing how she only has 6 1/2 months left. After our fun talk with Amelia we went to Suzanna's house for dinner. Mollie and Suzanna made some awesome Spaghetti! We had so much fun playing and enjoying eachothers company.

You know they say Father like Son? I think this one is Mother like Son.

Chad got some new mountian biking gear from Grant. He even got some special creams. :)

Ethan, Caitlin, and Sabrina each got Poppa a new game. Ethan's was this Marble game. Poppa is having a blast playing with it. Caitlin got him a charades game and Sabrina got Poppa a Dora Memory game.

Grant has introduced us to the coolest dessert ever! Tim Tams!!! You have to eat them a particular way.
First-you have a hot bowl of milk.
Second- you take the Tim Tam and bit off one corner and then you bite of the opposite corner.

Third-you then dip one corner in to the milk and suck through the other corner like a straw.

Fourth-as soon as you feel the milk coming through the other end you pop the entire Tim Tam in your mouth.
It is heavenly!!!! It melts in your mouth!

Jesse is just like his sister Eden...He loves to dance!

My Poor Car

So, on December 2 I was driving back to work on my lunch break, from visiting 2 friends that had just delivered. I was following behind this big green dump truck heading west on Mallard Creek Church Road. The truck moved over into the left hand turn lane to go south on I-85 and when I looked up at the light it had turned red. I put on my breaks and slid right into the car that was turning left on to East Mallard Creek Road. I hit the back part of the driver side of the car. She is ok. She got out of her car and was walking around. Me....when I realized what happened I was like...."There is smoke in the car...wait that is my airbag...I need to call 911....I hope she is ok....WAIT my car is still rolling...I need to drive it from out of the middle of the road.....I need to call work to tell them I am not coming back....I need to call Dad...maybe he can come get me...wait he is out of town for 2 days...can't call Jacob he is in my lip and nose are stinking....I wonder if I am bleeding...oh...I should turn off my CD." Yes that was all going through my head. And this was in just a matter of 1-2 minutes. But, I am ok. I did have them take me to the ER to have them look me over. I knew I had some burns from the airbag and wanted to make sure they were ok. My injuries are....2 burns on my left wrist and left elbow... 2 nice size bruises on my left arm...a nice burn and bruise on my belly... and a nice little burn on the tip of my nose...all of this from the airbag...and also some injury to my neck and upper back...oh...and my right wrist is mildly sprained. But besides that I feel GREAT!!! Thank goodness that is all that is wrong with me. I was truely blessed that nothing more happened.
