What a busy few months!

I haven't posted much since my parents were in town (for 5 weeks) and we were just too busy having fun and carrying on with everyday life. Since I last blogged, Doug got promoted to Major, Griffin turned 3, I turned 33, Jillian turned 6 and we've kicked off the holidays. I'm pooped already :) Last weekend we got our Christmas tree at a cute little local tree farm, and then later in the day took our family picture for our Christmas card. It actually turned our pretty nice and wasn't all that stressful (unlike other years). I'm about 1/2 done wrapping gifts, so it feels nice to get somethings accomplished since there will be A LOT of prep work involved in our trip to AZ. Yes, we've officially gone insane and decided to DRIVE to Arizona. It's gonna be crazy but a lot of fun too. We haven't been home for Christmas since 2003 so it's time. And next Christmas, Doug will be deployed so we figured this was the year to do it. My parents are beyond excited to have us home and we can't wait to catch up with our friends. We're really looking forward to being there, but not the drive ;)

I wish I had the time/energy to post pictures but I just don't, maybe next blog!

Umm... waiting for birthday pics, christmas pics, promotion pics. Anything. Please!
Hope your drive to AZ was uneventful. But with 3 kids nothing is uneventful.
