Christmastime is here!!

I have been terrible about blogging lately! Since I last posted, I have become an aunt! Keagan Drury Dalton was born at 9:44pm on Dec. 16th. He was 7lbs, 13oz, and 21 inches long. They are also telling me he is a redhead like my sister! Melissa and Keagan are home and doing well. I am headed up to Virginia on Monday to meet him myself and I cannot wait! They have been posting a lot of pictures, and I can't wait to meet the little booger! They had pictures taken yesterday of Keagan and they are posted here on my sister's blog! :)

Also, Philip's dad came to visit this week, and we enjoyed spending time with him! We went to see the new Mission Impossible movie which I would definitely recommend! We also went to see The Spirit of Christmas show in Biloxi, and it was outstanding!! It was a "New York style" Christmas show with great singing and phenomenal dancing! They even had a block of ice lowered from the top of the curtain, and an ice skating pair performed to "Oh Holy Night". It was just awesome.

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! I am so thankful for our Savior Jesus Christ being brought into the world to save us. Have a blessed holiday!

All moved in!

Oh yeah! I have a blog! Oops. It has been a busy couple of weeks... we closed on our house last Wednesday. Yes, the day before Thanksgiving. It was quite dramatic, too. We were initially supposed to close on Monday. Then, it got moved back to Wednesday at 11am. Well, on Wed. morning the U-Haul was in our parking lot and the movers were on their way from New Orleans when we got a call saying we wouldn't be able to close that day. We were freaking out bc all of our stuff was packed including our clothes. We explained our situation, and they said they would keep trying to work it out. So, we went ahead and packed up the U-haul, and thankfully we got a call asking if we could come close right away. So, long story short- we closed in sweat pants and t-shirts... we were smelly and gross. It makes for an interesting story, though, right?

Anyway, we are pretty much settled in at this point. We finally have our fridge and direct tv! =) The only thing left is the guest room... which will probably be a work in progress for a while bc we don't have a bed in there yet. haha. But it is so nice to have the space and the freedom to talk loud or sing, or just laugh. I didn't realize how miserable the apt was until we got into our house! I have also put up my Christmas tree and decorated my mantle with garland and stockings. Our wonderful sales agent gave us a beautiful wreath for the front door, too! I'll post pics soon. Have a great weekend, everyone!
