Home for the Holidays

I cannot believe Christmas and New Years have already come and gone. Time flies when you have fun for sure! Josh and I got to Dallas, Dec 10th and spent a good 3 weeks at home with family and friends. There were a few events that we didn't quite anticipate. First of which- my poor and faithful Jetta saw it's last days. We drove 1200 miles from Utah to Dallas with no problems whatsoever and after we get home, we decide an oil change might be beneficial, BUT to our dismay- it's what killed her. The stupid mechanic just "forgot" to put oil in the car and sent us on our way. 30 miles later...ON THE HIGHWAY at RUSH HOUR, the engine blows. Yes- destroyed, ruined, kaput, DEAD! So the last 2 weeks of our vacation was spent working with the mechanic's shop, their insurance company and an attorney. This may sound like a complete unfortunate event, but honestly we feel this is a blessing because Jetta's time was coming close and we knew that if we were going to sell it, we wouldn't get much for it. BUT, because the shop is at fault, we should get a settlement and the value of the car which is alot more than I really expected. Merry Christmas to us!

On to other events, we had so much fun with the family. We made it to a Mav's game, went to our farm in Oklahoma, reunited with friends that I haven't seen since the wedding, New Years in downtown Dallas, laughs and new memories with the family and ALOT of eating. It was a blast and I'm so thankful for such awesome family and friends. Thank you mom and dad for everything, we love you tons and can't wait to see you again soon.

I'm just going to post pics. Hope everyone had a FANTASTIC holidays and may 2010 be the best year yet! Much love-
