Happy Chrissy!

First, I would like to say thank you all for understanding my month long break from the blog. I took the time to heal and reflect on the many memories I have of my wonderful grandma. I am very very blessed to have had her in my life. She is a huge part of me and taught me how to be the strong woman I am today.

Second, I want to say HAPPY CHRISSY from DOWN UNDER!!! This was the first Christmas away from family and snow, which Dave and I both missed greatly. But we seemed to have managed and I did get one great big Christmas present...


This is a big deal!! This is the first time ever my dad has gotten a passport, left the country (other than Canada), and first time in over 10 years that he has flown! It's so great to have him come and spend time with Dave and I here in Newcastle!  He will be here for 3 weeks, yep...3 whole weeks! It may be tight in our little apartment, but I know that we will all work to make it the best time!!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and got to spend it with friends and family!
