The Best Christmas Ever!

I decided to give up this blogging thing at the end of the summer because I became extremely busy with other things but now I think it's time to start again. December was probably the busiest month I have ever experienced. Unfortunately lots of areas of my life suffered but we are pulling through. The best part of the month was of course Christmas. Celebrating the birth of Christ.

This is the first year Mom and Dad Jolly were able to be with us for Christmas and it was great. We spent the week with them in a beach condo at Pensacola Beach. The weather was fair...a little colder than what was predicted but it was fine. I did learn that I was made for beach life. Kalli was too. She loved every minute.

On Christmas Eve we went to church for the Christmas Eve service then to Mom and Dad Thorpe's house for the annual talent show and gift exchange. I have posted a video of Kalli singing the Hallelujah chorus. It's one of her favorites.

After all was said and done and Mom and Dad Jolly were on their way back to the "arctic north." I had the post Christmas blues. Did not want to face the realities of busy life, cheerleading, house work, Doug's 10 different jobs. But what can you do? I am adjusting.

My goal for next year is to focus on more important things and give some things up. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress.

Love to All!
