.... Christmas day bike ride in 75 degree weather ; Madi wearing her onsie pajamas I gave

her! haha ; Laughing at Grandma Connie for talking to herself all the time - "Oh

awesome sisters Madi and Savanna ; ...
... Universal Studios all day with my sisters, where we got soaked on a ride, then

visited the 'People Dryer', got flipped off by a 10 year old kid, and helped an old lady

put her shoes back on...what FUN we had! ; and last but certainly not least,

spending Christmas with the two loves of my life: Bella and my amazing husband Ty!

I like it here

Florida, that is. It was in the 80's today. I guess that's not the only reason for liking it here.

The people are so friendly! Anytime I'm in the neighborhood, people wave. I have finally caught on and I wave back. I'm so polite, I know.

Bella loves being mauled every day after 2:30pm (when her 10-year-old Aunt Isabelle comes home from school)...and after 6:10pm (when her Grandpa Rowdy comes home from work)...and every few hours by her daddy who gets to see her as he pleases! Ty really likes that. So Bella stays happy.

Bella has only been in my life for 7 months now, but it feels like she's always been here. I can't believe I ever lived without her! She has 2 bottom teeth and now the 2 top teeth are pushing their way through. Bella doesn't appreciate those things and neither do I! Besides the disruption they are to sleep, she likes to grind them, and it's like nails on a chalk board for me! EEK!!! I get chills just typing about it.

Christmas is around the corner and it's hard to feel like it's that time already - especially without cold weather to prove it. I've been playing Christmas songs on the piano...and frankly, I think I'll be dreaming of a white Christmas forever! It's a little weird without the white fluffy stuff.

I miss Utah, and I like it here. I remain conflicted.
