She started out by pulling out all of our card games and ripping all the packages to get to the cards, which she then spread everywhere. The worst was that she opened up our Apples to Apples game... do you know how many cards come with that game? (just shy of about 1,000 cards, no joke). Once I started cleaning the cards, she decides to go downstairs (without mom) so she can get into more trouble!
Sure enough, as soon as I walk down I notice wrapping paper on the floor. She got into the gifts that Jill and John, and Grandma and Grandpa Merrill gave us. They were on the dinning room table, so she climbed up and had a blast! I purposely haven't put any presents under the tree for this very reason! Oh well, I guess I will re wrap them.After all of this I got smart and put our gate up to keep her upstairs with me. I proceeded with my original plan to get laundry and bathrooms cleaned. While doing so Abbey was playing and picking up odd and in's around upstairs. After a while she comes in with her stroller full of goodies. She had gotten the baby bottles and pacifiers I put aside for baby Micheal. Among other little toys there was also my prenatal vitamins, Tim's hand cuff holder and his brass buckle. On one side she hung her basket of ponies and on the other her wooden doll with the felt dress up clothes. She was wearing her cat ears headband and my high heels. It made me laugh to say the least! (Don't look at the messy room behind her please!!)

I really enjoyed that hot chocolate (I drank it all even though the whole time I had to go to the bathroom!)

I don't know if my title is correct. I will have to ask Tim when he gets home because he should be fluent in Spanish by then! That's right, Tim left to Tucson on Sunday to start his Spanish Immersion Class. The best way to describe what he is doing is to use the MTC as an example. He is living at this training compound until 12:00pm next Thursday! They feed him there and everything! Everyday he has classes, pretty much all day long with a 2 hour siesta during lunch. Starting yesterday, everyone is only allowed to speak Spanish. They signed a contract saying they wouldn't speak English and if caught they would be sent home!! Eight days of straight Spanish!! That means no calling home unless we speak Spanish together. He has texted me in Spanish though... asking for a picture of Abbey and me for class. His instructor said that by the end of the class, they will be thinking in Spanish and may even have a hard time speaking English again. Great, I get to spend my holidays with a Spanish man!! Abbey and I have been missing him a lot and will take him anyway we can get him! And I know he misses us too. But distance makes the heart grow fonder right!
The finished tree!!
