Feliz Ano Nuevo

"Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true."
--Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Phantom's Gift

...so Jake is quite the romantic...When I woke up Christmas morning Jake had a "special" present that I was supposed to open before all other presents...I opened it to find our old cd player with a picture of the Phantom of the Opera on it that said to plug the player in and turn it to number 5 before opening the next gift. I followed the instructions and listened to the theme of the phantom of the opera as opened my next gift which was the DVD. Inside the movie was a certificate to a weekend get away to the Anniversary Inn in the Phantom of the Opera room for the following day. The phantom of the opera has some sentimental value since we first saw it when it came out at a date dance in high school and then I played it on the piano for Jake the night before he went on his mission....so it was really thoughtful! Thanks Honey for being so cute!

a little bit of christmas...

We had a wonderful christmas full of cheer and goodness. We are blessed to have both our families live one minute apart so we can go back and forth and not miss a single party! Here are a couple pictures from our holiday...

Merry Christmas!
