Christmas and New Years!

Warning: long post and lots of pictures!!!

I know this is a late post, but better late than never right? well i guess i will catch everyone up on how our Christmas and New Years went. so we had a very short but sweet Christmas break, all of Jesse's family was in Maryland, so we got to spend Christmas with my family this year, which was great! we had to work on christmast eve so we drove up once we got off work, we made it there in super fast i swear our 3hour drive only took us 2hrs and we weren't even speeding! haha so yeah we got to my families house just in time to head to the movie theater to go see Avatar, we drove to the theater in payson to find out it was closed, whoops, we checked online for the times but the forgot to mention they were closed on christmas eve, so we went home and watched the christmas 1st presidency special which was really nice, then we watched the new Star Trek which jesse loves! it ended up being a nice relaxing evening. we all got new PJ's which is a christmas tradition in my family, so we were all cuddled up for our movies. well the next morning we slept in till like 9am me and jesse could of slept longer haha but my little sister is so antsy she couldnt' wait to open gifts. but before we would let her go down we had to do the traditional picture on the stairs! haha i know we are all grown up but i still love it, because its one family picture we get before the crazyness of the day takes over. so once that was done we went in to open gifts. me and jesse were the christmas elves this ear and passed out all the gifts. it was a really great day, me and jesse got my parents old stereo system with speakers adn a 5 dvd changer. which is awesome! we got an awesome picture my dad took and framed, jesse got the router he has wanted for a long time and is so excited to start wood working again. I got some ugg like boots i know they are ugly but they keep my feet so warm, and my feet are always freezing so its nice to have warm feet. i got a jacket, camera, and shirt from jesse for christmas, and jesse got two really nice jackets from me, and transformers and a few games. I got lots of clothes from my mom and dad, and some gift cards so i coudl get stuff for my cruise (which i leave for on saturday!!!) i was able to buy and new swim suit and skirt and shirt with them! i also got some sweet hot pink converse shoes, and jesse got bright blue ones that he loves. we got other stuff but i wont bore you with the details~! we had amazing quish and cinnamin rolls for breakfast, and ham for dinner. then next day we went and saw Avatar then headed up to my Aunt Traci's in Ogden to exchange gifts with them, it was really good seeing them i really miss my family and its hard living three hours away so i really love it when i get to see them. the rest of the weekend was really relaxing, roxy and snoopy played like crazy! and roxy was so tired she slept the whole way home which was really nice. well for new years we stayed home and watched teh star trek movies jesse got for chirstmas, yes my husband is a trekie but i love him for it! :) then the next day we went to dinner with our friends sarah and jacoby, we ate at chilies and had our friend Ty as a waiter, it was delicious! well thats about all we did for our holidays but it was fun.

So i finished my NCLEX review, and my Transcripts are being mailed to DOPL and i will have my Authorization to Test by the end of the week. what this means is that i can sign up to take my state boards, once i pass my boards i will be an  official nurse! im so scared to take the test thought! its a 6hour test and you could take 75 or 250 questions, you dont know if you pass for about 48hours, and it is the hardest test i will ever have to take! This is what i have been working towards for teh past 4 years! once i pass this test i will be able to relax! i have been studying hard and keep telling myself i will pass but im still scared and anxious, but im smart and i know i can do it. everyone pray for me nad wish me luck! im hoping to take the test when i get back from my cruise, so yes teh cruise will be a blast but i will definanlty be studying on my down time!
