I wanted to take a breather...

...and write a quick post.

It's been hectic around here, but I have managed to check some items off my huge
to-do list (Hosting and feeding a lot of family the week of Thanksgiving being the major one, with a husband on crutches nonetheless).

This is what I have left to do:

-Pull off a Nativity using the primary children in our stake this Saturday night at our University Stake International Holiday Celebration...costumes, set, props, music, phone calls, rehearsal, Aaaahhhh! I'm stressing out...
breathe in, breathe out, breathe in...

-Go to Twin Falls for the blessing of my new baby niece : )

-Prepare a talk for High Council Sunday. (me or one of my counselors have to speak with the High Counselor every's my turn this month).

-Anonymously provide an entire Christmas for a family in need with our student ward. (We do it every year, I love this).

-Christmas Dinner with the Bishopric and their wives

-Stake Leadership Christmas dinner

-My baby is turning one!!

-Achievement Days

-And of course Christmas

**I think though, if I can just get the Nativity over with this weekend, I will be able to relax a little bit.

Before I sign off, I wanted to post a couple pictures of my
turkeys that I took the weekend before Thanksgiving:

(He just loves her so much!)

(the best of friends)

And I promise to soon add some blog posts about:


-The new POG champion

-A couple funny conversations that Porter has had lately (that I have heard through the grapevine).


Phew!! That felt good. It really did. I wish I could stay at my computer all day and avoid my responsibilities, and procrastinate, and blog, and procrastinate some more, and visit Fox News to check the latest headlines, and look up some new recipes, and comment on my favorite blogs, and Google avocado facials, and check the last known coordinates of the International Space Station, and...

Gotta Go, see ya soon.

Okay, I am good, I got my Natalie blog fix:) I was starting to have a little anxiety. Hope everything runs smoothly with everything you are doing! I wish I were closer so I could help you out, and maybe watch your little girly while you took care of some things. Love those pictures, they are priceless!
