So for Christmas this was my gift...well our little addition. Seeing as the money is ours and his paycheck covers rent and that's about it. :)
His name is Rufus, he's three months old and he's the CUTEST thing ever.
He's a handful, a pain in the butt at times, but we love him!
John got his PS3 and he loved it. He said he kind of had an idea after Riley made the comment a couple of days before Christmas that John's XBox only had to "last until Christmas."
Just kidding. It was okay. He was excited, and that made it a great day.
Our new little family. :)
Patty gave these teeth to the whole family, and this is what we're wearing for the Christmas card for next year. They're pretty freaking attractive I must say.
What a special bunch..
Rufus was licking C's hand. She wasn't enjoying it, but she wasn't hating it either. It was cute to watch.

Cutest little C! She loves John and we love her.

Overall Christmas was great. A really long day jumping from place to place but it was nice to see everyone and just enjoy the family time.

This is the from the day after Christmas. Testing out our new camera. :)

John is in the middle of eating Chinese food. Whooo. it's on to New Years. Can you believe that it's been a decade since all that Y2K crap?


Jazz v. Magic

John and I went to the Jazz v. Magic game a couple weeks ago. Total fluke, but it was really fun.

The Lawrence family attorney gave us his season tickets for the night, and they were down on the 20th row; pretty freaking awesome (especially when we didn't have to pay for them)

The game started out really poorly for the the end of the first quarter I thought for sure we were toast, but in the third quarter they started to come back and sealed the deal in the fourth. Too bad we didn't see the fourth...John made me leave at the end of the third because it was eleven o'clock. I was kind of, sort of, pissed.

Oh was fun. :)

okay so I must say...I wrote that last post in the heat of the moment. May have been a little extreme. Sorry if I offended anyone, that is truly not my intention. Ever.
on to happier moments..
Christmas is 16 days away.
Haven't done any shopping, except for John.
I have quite the surprise headed his way and he's freaking out because he knows I have a secret but there is no way I am telling him until I give him his gift.
Other than that, I haven't done anything. I need a present for my parents...either combined or separate...and then two for the Grow cousin exchange. Adam and Cali, for those of you who know them, I'm ready to take any suggestions.
And then we have the Lawrence gift exchange. We don't know what to get for the two we have for that either.
Pretty much we're donezo. 16 days. Eek!
This weekend we're going to see A Christmas Carol at Hale Centre Theater, and I'm SO stoked. I've always wanted to go, but have never been. So that will be exciting.
Next week is finals and after Tuesday I can finally enjoy the season!

If you know me, you know that I'm not one to hold back on my opinion.
I just watched a trailer on the new movie "8: A Mormon Proposition"
I you could say, angry, at least.
The whole movie pretty much is about how Mormons are evil.
You know, I don't have anything against homosexuals, I believe that they deserve the same rights as any straight couple but I do believe that marriage is between a man and woman.
The thing that makes me the most angry is that throughout this preview there were signs that said "Stop the Hate." That's a little hypocritical don'tcha think? You are proclaiming that you're against hate, but that's exactly what you're doing. Hating an entire religion.
They're standing up for what they believe in, and so is the church.
If I do remember correctly, just recently the LDS Church endorsed a bill in Salt Lake that stated that all couples (no matter their sexual orientation) deserve the same rights as anyone else.
I guess I just don't understand. Call me young and stupid, tell me I'm sheltered, but I really don't know how you can attack one religion. The Catholic Church supported prop 8 also, but you don't see anyone attacking them.

it's been a day

one of those days where nothing seem to go right.'s acutally been almost two weeks of those days.
First. My iPod broke. Totally freaked out on me and now it won't even turn on.
Second. My phone is being retarded. The home button is slow to respond, and once it does respond, I try to lock my phone and all it does is take a picture.
Apple is pissing me off royally right now.
And then today. Oh today.
Let's start from the beginning.
Yesterday I woke up...well kind of woke up, I'd been up all night tossing and turning. So when it was time to get up for work I was not functioning. I couldn't open my eyes, I was achey and tired, and I just hurt.
So...I called in sick. Spent the day at home, sleeping off whatever it was that was bothering me. Ironic that I can sleep during the day but can't see to fall asleep at night, right?
So I get into work today, not really excited to be here because after all, I really don't like my job. I open up my Outlook and there is an email waiting for me entitled "Holiday Pay". You see, I was required to work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of last week and received Thursday and Friday as paid holidays. Well, since I woke up and wasn't feeling well enough to come to work yesterday...I no longer get my holiday pay. It's "company policy" that I work the day before and the day after a holiday.. (Or I guess 4 days after the holiday) in order to receive my pay.
I lost it.
Sitting at my desk, started to cry my eyes out. Some may think this is overreacting but two days pay isn't pocket change to people like the Lawrences.
So, needless to say, I've been a mess all day.
My stomach has started to hurt, which I'm sure is a result of the stress about the fact that my paycheck is going to be less than expected; and to top it all off, I'm out of sick leave for the year so what do I get to do? Work ten hour shifts for the rest of the week to make up for yesterday.
So here I am, quarter after six, still sitting here. Don't worry that I have class on Tuesday nights, and yes, it started fifteen minutes ago.
My final is in two weeks from tonight and I'm going to have to study my butt off. I have a group project/final due a week from Friday and one of the kids is COMPLETELY MIA( missing in action all you old fogies.) OH, and! Not only am I working ten hour days at the firm BUT I also get to work at Kingsbury every night this week.
Holy freaking cow I think I might die.
I'm frustrated, can ya tell?
