Wow it's been a long time since we've updated our blog! We've had a lot to be thankful for this holiday season and are ready for a new year to start. Geoffrey is finally done with this semester and is happy for the small break before the new one starts. He loves working at Huntsman Cancer Institute and loves walking to work. I was just promoted at my job and am now the assistant manager at Country Furniture. I love it and am excited to keep moving forward with this new year. We spent our time off over Thanksgiving in Idaho visiting family and friends. It's been the first chance we've had to get up there since this summer and we were glad to see all those we love. We were going to try to make it up there for Christmas but didn't think our car could handle the snow. So we were happy to stay home in our nice warm apartment. The upside of it was we got to spend time with my family on Christmas Eve and talk to my little brother on Christmas Day. He only has 10 weeks left of his mission and we're excited to get him home! We've had a good Christmas and enjoyed spending the day off of work together. Geoffrey's favorite present this year was a leap frog toy I got him. Its a world globe that plays geography games with you. He was also excited to get Jazz tickets to a game this season. My favorite present was the rocking chair he restored for me. I've had my grandma's old rocking chair sitting in my moms basement for years. He refinished it and found new pads for it. It's now in our living room and I love it! We wish everyone a late Christmas and hope this new year brings joy to your life.
