Twas' the night OF Christmas and all through the house...? Whatever. Nate got deathly sick. Poor lamb. He was a mess. I thought he had food poisoning, but I was mistaken considering I got lucky to get the exact same thing the next day. You'd think this would all be a TERRIBLE memory, but not so. Who'd have thought that being that sick together could be romantic? Not me, until now.
There is something about taking care of someone you love when they are at their worst...on the bathroom floor...curled up in a ball. There is also something about that same person taking care of you the next day when they know exactly how you feel. It makes me teary-eyed thinking of those two miserable nights, because I've never felt closer to Nate. Strange? I don't care because I will never forget those two nights. I've never seen Nate so sick, and I wished there was something I could do for him. All I could do was rub his back and get him a towel for his knees in the bathroom.
The next night he saw it coming and got me into bed, cleaned the house, did the dishes, and got Noah to bed. He rubbed my back, and cleaned up after my disgusting bathroom mess (don't worry, I won't go into TOO much detail). The next morning Nate had to go to work, but not before cleaning the house, getting Noah fed and ready for the day, and helping me get out of bed. I'm sure this is all just a little too cheesy, and I'm normally not one for cheese, but they are right when they say if you want to love someone, serve them. I've never loved Nate more. Enough cheese.
The day after Christmas we went to Disneyland because Santa, plus a little help from Aunt Dawn, got us Disney passes! (Yes, the day after Nate's sicky night and the day of mine). Look how happy I look, so completely unaware of what's coming in just a few hours.
For New Year's, we road tripped over to Tucson to stay with Gail and Andy and spend time with the Holiday side of the family. We had so much fun visiting with everyone. Not all of the Holidays could make it, but the ones who did had a lot of fun. We ate lots, went golfing, relaxed, went to a movie, went to a BEAUTIFUL canyon and rode the tram up to the top (I wish we had our camera with us), and played TONS of games.
For some reason we didn't bust out our camera until New Year's Eve. Stupid. Oh well, these are the pictures we got though...

Somehow those were the only pictures we got? We did get some on the drive home though of Noey's enjoying the road trip.
More catching up to do STILL even after these two giant posts!
Happy New Year!
