The Rainy Beach

Darold's favorite thing is to drive in the rain. I heard the raindrops and grabbed him to hop in the car and go for a fun drive. We ended up at a small walking trail that follows the beach. The beach in the rain is the best!! We even took some pictures!

We ended up wet, sandy, and exhilerated running up and down the beach and even hiking up a small hill to overlook the beach!

Gettin ready for CHRISTMAS!!

I think that this is the first Christmas that I have actually been really GIDDY about Christmas! We went to Utah in November for Darold's brother's wedding in Logan, and the day that we were supposed to leave to go back to warm and sunny SNOWED!!!!

Our poor Car!! I don't think it knew what to come of all this freezing white stuff stuck everywhere!

This is also the first year that not only have I been listening and enjoying Christmas music and movies, but I've been listening to it since before Thanksgiving!! I used to get frustrated and upset at people who did that. Haha...Now I'm one of them!! This is also the first time that we're not in boxes moving in and getting settled, or in boxes getting ready to move. We are actually able to sit back and enjoy the holidays. We even got a real tree!! It smells so fantastic! This is also the first time that I got to set up my nativity set that my mom made for me years ago! (You can see it in the picture below on the book shelf under the widow.)
