Our First Christmas
The Christmas season this year was CRAZY! As you know, we held Christmas 2 days early. We pretended it was Christmas morning even though it was night outside. The next day was Christmas Eve and I rushed around the house trying to get everything packed in time to leave at 3pm. I got almost everything done, but left the house a complete mess! I picked up JT from work and we hit the road. It was a "do or die" situation since there was a storm riding our tail the entire way through Utah. Snickers hated life the entire way. We made it into Riverside around midnight. After dropping off Snickers at the Trout home, we went to spend Christmas day with the Mezas. It was fun seeing my family again. We weren't sure how we would fit all the presents in our car! We then went back to the Trouts to open presents with JT's dad and brother. Those poor cats were attacked by 3 nerf guns! It didn't help that JT got an automatic nerf machine gun. They spent most of the morning either attacking the cats or shooting down remote control helicopters. Other than that, it wasn't terribly eventful. We did get to go see the Trout grandparents! They're always a lot of fun to see. I got an awesome book about the Fourth of July. It saved me from boredom on all of my flights to follow.
