Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Christmas is about friends and family, but mostly about Christ and all He did for us. So I hope you and your family had the best Christmas ever, and that the new year brings all the joy and blessings you need. God bless us, everyone!

Random artwork for friends

All right, so like Shnq Girl's birthday was, like, a couple of weeks ago. And, like, Beatles Lover like made her this like really super cool poster for like her wall. So, here are some like really cool pictures.

Yeah, she did this free-hand from looking at a sign on the internet. How cool is that?

Random Christmas-ness

So, here are some random photos of our Christmas tree. The first is with the flash. The second is without the flash (so you can see the pretty, pretty colors of the lights). And the last one was playing around with shutter speeds. Pretty cool, huh? (and, yes, that is a ginormous poinsettia next to the tree...it was a gift)


Merry Christmas!!

Mr. Perfect's Random Five Days of Birthday

So, Mr. Perfect's birthday was yesterday, but was he contented to keep the celebrating down to just one day? Not in this lifetime.
  • Saturday, he and Most Happy Girl had their weekly date night at one of his favorite restaurants (Market Street Grill).
  • Sunday was the Merrill Family Home Evening and December Birthdays party. We were in charge and even got to pick out his present.
  • Monday was just the anticipation and finalizing all the plans for Tuesday.
  • On The Big Day, there was the annual lunch with Bishop Man (Mr. Perfect's older bro) and dinner with Most Happy Girl's parents. For your birthday, Mom P fixes a dinner of your choosing. Mr. Perfect chose in-bone ham and funeral potatoes (a Utah specialty dish that got it's name from being served at most LDS funeral luncheons, plus there's the added bonus that there's so much cheese and sour cream in them that they might just precipitate your funeral). Another added bonus was having Beatles Lover and Game Boy with us for the whole day. We were able to stay at the parents' late and watch A Christmas Story.
  • Wednesday brought the present from Most Happy Girl's parents. It was ordered from Amazon.com one day late of arriving for his actual birthday, but that way it helps to keep the love and happiness flowing for another day.
So much love, so little time.
