Alrighty,back to our trip.  I’m apoligize if I lied to you.  We’ve thought about going to UT/ID since before I went on maternity leave.  I was filling out my schedule at work and something just nagged at me that I shouldn’t work — that I we should drive to Utah for Christmas.  Totally insane, right?

Anyway, I talked it over with Drew and we both just felt strongly that it was something that we needed to do, but we’d just have to wait and watch over the weather.  Hence, we didn’t want to tell the boys since something might fall through.

Come Sunday the 20th, I packed while they were at school the whole week beforehand.  Drew even had a concert at Christmas in the Park the night before but still I packed.  The kids woke-up to suitcases full and a giant card from Santa.  I’m really bummed I can’t find my little camera to show you how cool Drew made it all look.  Needless to say they were surprised and excited to call the grandmas and grandpas about our coming.

There’s just something about a surprise.  Something that you know that no one else does.  I think that’s one of the funnest part of early pregnancy — is having something that just you and your husband know.  I wish I could find my tiny camera so I could post a picture.  I’ll keep my eyes open for it.  I wonder where I put it….

In other news our heater is coming today.  We decided to go with a super high effiicncy one because not only will it help our bills in the winter, but since the blower also does the a/c, that should be better also.  Also, Mr. Obama is giving a 30% tax credit on them through this year.  I decided I’d just take him up on that.  It’s quite chilly here as of late.  I’ve been baking bread just to stay warm. :)

    Baking bread is a good way to stay warm.

    I love the way you surprised the kids! I didn’t know you did that. I would love to do that to my kids one day. :)
