It has been a few days since Robert recieved his call and we still get emotional every time we watch the video. We have begun with the mission preparations and it is fun, though at times somewhat stressful. I think once he is done with papers and finals next week that things will get better and we can really get down to business. We would like to be done with everything by the end of January so that in February we can just play and enjoy our time together before he leaves.
Brian is looking forward to taking over Robert's room and bed. We told him for 2 years he can have it, but when Robert comes home it is his again...in the mean time I'm going to move my office into Brian's room. It will make it easier when I have to work late or easier...But first there will be organizing to do..that will take place in February.
We have the tree up and the holiday music has been playing for a month now, but finally in the past 24 hrs the "white stuff" has finally made an appearance and it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It is a winter wonderland outside and I love it. I have to admit that I'm not to fond of driving in the snow and ice, but not having to commute makes that part a bit better, but I love the snow. It just really helps to make it feel like Christmas.
I took a few pictures of outside our house just to show how much snow really has come down!
I guess now the main thing that I need to do is get on the Christmas shopping. I have only bought one present for Brian and nothing else..I guess you all know what I'll be doing for the next week or so!
Happy Holidays and enjoy the winter wonderland in Utah!!!
