Christmas Shopping.... Check!!

Yes! That is exactly what it looks like. Thanksgiving hasn't even arrived and we have all of our Christmas gift shopping done and wrapped! I just have to say, it's all Jared's doing. Not only did he participate in the Christmas shopping, he helped decide what to get everyone AND he wrapped every present by himself. And let me tell you, if you can't see it in the picture, he's an amazing wrapper!

Christmas is going to be much more special this year b/c it's our first Christmas together as a married couple. I'm excited to go to the in-laws and participate in the traditions that Jared loves. I have to say, I'm learning a whole new side of him that I never would have guessed. Who knew he was so crazy about Christmas?! Not I!

Okay, on a non-Christmas note, I've listed a few "happenins" in our last week:

1. Jared found out that after this semester, he only has ten credits left to graduate!!! Oh my gosh, I honestly have to say that I can't wait until this particular journey is over. His semester is winding down and he has been swamped with school projects, papers and studying for tests and I'm trying to be as patient as I can for it to be over ;-). Jared is currently spending his saturday morning watching PowerBlock TV, craving for his own car project to do.

2. As for me, my day is pretty much the same everday. I wake up, I go to work, I come home, I make dinner and then we veg on the couch to prepare ourselves for the next day! We did get a chance to babysit our so very cute niece (and our only niece too, for that matter) on Wed night and I love doing that! She is so big and growing so much, it's exciting for me to live close to see the progress. We also went down to Utah county last night to hang out with our close friends and our home away from home. I love the Hayden's and their home! We had a great time catching up and visiting.

Well, that's about it. Now you have all experienced a week in the life of Jared and Cait!
