Another wonderful Nalgene! it has a smaller mouth to aid 22 year old spillers...and! it's hunter green! LOVE IT. Hunter didn't even realize he needed another nalgene...but oh my did he need it. I made him throw away the old one the minute we were done opening the new one...you know for his own safety.
And ...I got a beautiful bible ... with my new name on it. and what is even more precious...is the amount of time Hunter spent picking it out. Now being married to me for 7 months...he knows how I study the bible, and got one specific for how I learn....it's perfect and I freaking love him.
Anyways.. so Christmas was fantastic. I absolutely love the fact that our parents live less than 3 miles away from each other...and therefore we get to truly enjoy Christmas with family.
Hunter's cousins came up and over from Corpus and Atlanta and we had a ball. My favorite memories:
Andrew and Nathan sleeping outside in a tent
the over-use of the phrase: Christ-followers
the over-use of the phrase: innocuous
talks about tattoos that end up in talks about gay marriage
Jess' infamous envelope tradition
Joan beating Ozzie and Doug at poker in the same sitting as her learning to play
Jess crying multiple times while reading Twilight in mid-living room
being characterized into a gingerbread cookie along with all the cousins and then photoed
Baker's Street Pub and talking politics with my parents
Erin showing Pizza Hut who not to mess with
China Inn goodness
being really akwarded out and then comforted by the women in my awesome new family
Andrew holding out his arm for me to palpate his vein and simply saying "I read your blog"
talking Aggie tradition with a Longhorn :) (Ozzie)
seeing Bagwell tear up a t.u. stuffed animal...specifically when she ripped open the crotch area
seeing Bagwell plop onto Erin as she about died from all the excitement of the holidays..
It was so fun and full of love. I was born into such a loving and caring family...and I married into one as well. The Lord is so faithful. Love Love Love!
