Tim is getting ready to end his 3rd Block of med school, oh how the time flies. He works so hard everyday, it makes me tired just thinking about all he does. He wakes up at either 4:40am or 5:00 (depending on when we go to bed, or how Max does during the night), and does 1 1/2 of homework before he leaves for school. Bless his heart, he is doing that all for me so we can be together as a family after 6:00pm every weekday night! I started a nanny job that is 30 hours a week (3 ten hour shifts Wednesday-Friday from 7:30am-5:30pm), and am so grateful that when I'm done for the day, I get to spend a whole night with my boys. I get to bring Max with me to work, which is a huge blessing. I watch a 2 year-old little girl from a great family. It's a lot of work, but we are grateful for it.
This past month was so great seeing friends, family, and celebrating the Holidays! Leaving both my family and Tim's family were accompanied by many tears and tissues...I was a wreck at both goodbyes. We sure love our families and can't wait till we get to see them again. Here are some of our adventures:
|Max and his favorite Auntie Annie!|
|Annie and I had way too much fun together. It was the best thing ever being able to spend|
so much time with one of my best friends :)
|Max and his cousin Theo. Tim's brother and wife, Pete and Tina made us a delicious breakfast,|
and Max and Theo had a great time getting reacquainted. We sure wish you guys lived
closer to us!
|Seeing my dear friends was a major highlight of Utah! I hadn't seen Michelle for almost|
2 years...it was such a happy reunion!
|Some of the Holt grandchildren...we couldn't get a still shot as you can see. |
My Mom and Dad took us to
the Mandarin (the best Chinese food in the world...) and Devin and Dallin brought
their darling families. It was so fun to see everyone again :)
|Aunt Canda and sweet baby Claire :) Dev and Christine's first little bundle of joy!|
|Lovely. From Utah, my Mom, Dad, and Annie were awesome enough to drive us up|
to Boise to see Tim's family. The car ride was the best...as you can see. Little Max
was stuffed in the back, what a good sport! Thanks again you guys :)
|The BLOB!!! Max got a kick of sliding around in one of his uncle's sweatshirt. I|
thought he looked hilarious, and had to get a picture :)
|Merry Christmas! Tim's family has a tradition of dressing up and acting out|
the nativity every year. As you can see, Max was thrilled to be the angel this year.
|Merry Christmas at the Ashworths!!|
|Mom and Dad Ashworth took us to this darling little ice cream/candy shop and I had|
to get a picture. I loved all of it...especially the gazillion jars of candy and fun Christmas decor:)
|Happy New Year!!|
Don't mind us...PDA! This was our New Year's kiss...not one of our
|Dr. Ashworth, and Dr. Ashworth :)|
|When we came back from Utah and Idaho, we FINALLY got snow and rushed to|
good 'ol Walmart to get Max his snow suit :) Sweet little buddy!
|If I would have been proactive and sent out a Christmas card this year, this|
would have been it! I wasn't though...what a surprise!
I'm so glad this picture turned out the way it did, but hope Max
isn't scared of Santa next year...
