Merry Christmas Eve!!!

It's Christmas Eve!!!! Merry Christmas Eve! I always still feel like a kid at this time of year. I get so excited to see my children's face on Christmas morning. I think I get more excited than they do!

Wow the year 2012 is almost over...sounds so crazy doesn't it? It seems like a short time ago, I gave birth to my now 20 month old. :-/

So much has happened this year, both good and bad. The year has gotten better as it went on, which is a pleasant change to my life's previous patterns.

Right now I am sitting on my comfy couch, in front of our beautiful Christmas tree, watching two of my children walking around in their "getting along" t-shirt, my almost 20 month old toddler running around in nothing but his socks, and my mother preparing our Christmas dinner for this evening. My husband is at work. I feel very blessed for what I have right now.

Tonight, George will come home from work, we will have Christmas dinner, we will enjoy the food and each others company, we will let the children open one present a piece and we will go to bed anxiously awaiting the morning to come. Today will be a good day.

School has been going well. Very well actually. I just received my grades for the Fall semester...3.71! Third semester in a row for Dean's List. :) Which brings my overall GPA up from a 3.10 to 3.22...I'm good with that! I hope I can keep this up!
The only "B" I had was in my A&P II class, which isn't an "A" like I have been getting in my previous science classes, but still really good, so I'm happy with it.
I worked hard for that "B".
The upcoming Spring semester should be somewhat of a break for me, which I am greatly looking forward to.

Lots of positive changes coming in the near future. We are moving next month.
I. HATE. Moving.
But it's a very good move.
We are moving into a house George's boss owns. It's a big house. Each of our children will have a room of their own. We will have plenty of space. Big open area outside. Huge yard. Lots of play room for the kids. A lake for the Summer. A garden. Oh I can't wait.
I just wish we could blink our eyes and be moved.

Nope, doesn't work. Just tried.
Oh well.

Another big positive to this move, in a way, it secures George's job. His boss wanted to put someone in it that either was a long term employee or had the potential to be a long term. For lack of a better word, it's somewhat an honor to have the opportunity to be able to live in that house. I'm looking forward to it.

I just really hope we can sell our current house. If we can't...no. Not thinking about that. We WILL sell. We will. *crossing fingers*

Things are good at the moment. I am praying every night before I go to sleep that they stay that way. I love my husband. I love my kids. I love my life and where it's at. The only way to go is up.
