O Christmas Tree

I have actually had my tree up since the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Hey, I did really well this year! In the past I've put it up the first bit of November - just because I feel like I don't get enough time to enjoy my tree as much as I'd like to. Note that new ornaments were added this year, a proper representation of our teams we love - LSU, UGA, and the New Orleans Saints. Also a BYU Idaho alumni ornament was added - Geaux Kevin! I am so proud for him completing his Bachelor's degree. He is doing so well in school and it makes me so happy to see him having such great success- he deserves it!
With Kevin wrapping up a degree and the uncertainty of a move in the near (or far) future because of a job we decided to stay home (in Idaho, just to clarify) for the holidays. It is sad and exciting all at the same time. Sad that we won't be with our families to share the day with them. It's my first Christmas away from my family. Ever. But exciting because we can start some of our own traditions and keep others going that our parents had always done for us. Plus we got a toy we had been eying for some time to keep us distracted. I've wrapped it under the tree and we are not allowed to open it until the Friday before Christmas or Christmas Eve.

We hope that all of you are enjoying the Holiday season. I know I am with the unusual circumstances here in Rexburg - no snow! Feels more like a Louisiana Christmas, which I do not mind. Merry Christmas everyone!

SEC Championship

This is a pretty big deal. Well actually a huge deal. Surprisingly things have been very civilized and polite in the Bradley home. However that is subject to change tomorrow. But I promise everyone that there will be no fist throwing, threats, or sleeping on the couch tomorrow. I think.
