the countdown begins!

happy birthday to steven! we went over to the irelander's house for a special christmas family home evening and delicious birthday cake. we were going to go visit opportunity village's magical forest but alas, it was rainng caitlins & mels this day.
again with the rain- i wanted to go to the temple but roads were flooded so the irelands came over and we watched UNLV stomp on someone.....and i bakedbakedbaked! lots of christmas goodies!
when will it stop raining?! planned activity- the gift of lights, cancelled due to inclement weather. so we went to my mump's house and got our pizza on then spend some time at the harrison's house. love our family!
what says merry christmas better than a tree made of money? nothing. nothing else says it better. when we were little chicklens, our dad made us a  money tree, topped with crisp $1 bills. then after church on sundays, we would go to jone's feed and get a coke or candy bar [i guess my dad didn't mind breaking the sabbath. us kids sure didn't mind]. i wanted to continue this tradition but alas, our poor-ness made for some adjustments. justin still loved it!
we also went to our annual ornament exchange with kelly & cindy's families. kelly & cindy are teryl's [my MIL] best friends- they've been doing this for over 15 years! so kelly, kelly's parents, kevin, brian, whitney, little penelope, [poor sick] taylor, nichole, cindy, lauren, mallory, teryl, lynsey, justin, and i partied like it was 2010. they always find the funniest ornaments to give to each other- last nights' winners: lauren's twin fleur de lis' and justin & brian's matching butt-farting ornaments. our tree finally upgraded from 3 ornaments! and kelly's parents made us this BEAUTIFUL afghan!
Michael: Okay, you know what? I will not donate my winnings to Comic Relief, since apparently it doesn't exist. I am going to donate to Afghanistanis with AIDS.
Jim: I think you mean the aid to Afghanistan.
Michael: No, I mean Afghanistanis with AIDS.
Phyllis: Afghani.
Michael: What?
Phyllis: Afghani.
Michael: That's a dog.
Pam: No, that's Afghan.
Michael: That's a shawl.
Dwight: Wait, canine AIDS?
Michael: No. Humans with AIDS.
Creed: Who has AIDS?
Jim: Guys, the Afghanistananies.
Michael: Okay, you know what? No. No. AIDS is not funny. Believe me, I have tried.
