My first Christmas in Heaven.
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights like Heaven's stars, reflected in the snow.
The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away your tears,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But their sound can't compare with the Christmas choir up here!
I have no words to tell you of the joy their voices bring,
It is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me, I see your broken heart,
But I am not so far away, we really aren't apart.
Thank you for your kindness, you know I hold you dear,
Be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ, this year.
I send to you a special gift from Heaven, my home above.
I send to you the memory of my undying love.
The gift of love is precious, more precious than pure gold,
And always most important, in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep those others, as my Father said to do.
I just can't count the blessings He has in store for you!
So have a merry Christmas, and wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year!
My Aunt April posted this poem that a friend had sent to her and I thought it would be good to share. A lot of us have love ones who have passed away this year and even though it hurts these words bring such joy to my heart knowing that Dustan, Dad G, and Christa is spending their very first Christmas with Jesus.

I also meant to say that I am SUPER DUPER excited about Christmas this year!!! I am totally in the Christmas spirit and I can not wait to see what this new year will bring! I really would like this Christmas be focused on the True Meaning and less on the all the superficial stuff... yes its fun to buy and give gifts, but the intimacy of that special family time and the reality that we have eternal life is SO much BETTER!!!
I have High Hopes for this year and im so ready for a change... a GOOD one! :)

I can not believe how long its been since I have done some blogging!! Well first things first... I had a WONDERFUL and FILLING Thanksgiving!! It was definitely different, but GOOD!
The week of Thanksgiving was the typical work and school and I had not seen Kyle since that Saturday which was very brief. :( On Wednesday (day before Thanksgiving) Kyle came and picked me up from work and we headed to his casa to start the Thanksgiving fun! I was so excited to see him when he came to get me... we don't usually go that long without seeing each other... 4 days... that's a lot! We have both been so busy ,so it was great that we got to slow things down a little and relax during this special holiday. I was able to spend the night with his family Wednesday-Friday and it was very nice... usually I stay so late and he has to drive me home, but this week I was able to stay! :) On Thursday morning we woke up and just chilled out around the house, played with Cole, and then it was time for me to wake Kyle up! After we were both ready we headed off to my grandparents house (dads side) and had a lovely meal! We had so much fun.... 4 of our family members were absent this year, but we gained 2 "new" people! My Aunts mom and sister decided to join us this year, it was wonderful to have them and I hope they make it a tradition! :)
We then left to go back to Kyles house to "eat" and spend some time with them for a little while and they as well had a lovely spread of food. After that we made our last stop of the day... my other grandparents house (moms side), I was so full I didn't want to even look at food but she was nagging me about not eating her food so I made a little plate just for her!! She had tons of stuff and the dessert table was literally endless.... we had lots of people to feed. After everyone was finished the children had a bowling tournament , they had lots of fun doing that! When we were finished there we said our goodbyes and headed back to Kyles house.
My Thanksgiving break was wonderful and its really sad that I have NO pictures to prove it! My camera is broken so I have to wait for Kyles pictures but its taking him forever to give them to me b/c they are on the bottom of his priority list.... when I get a few I will post them up though.
As of today I went to school this morning and now im at home working on some papers and studying for tests.... Im thrilled I have the rest of the week off!! I can have more time to study!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed day!!
love ya! :)
