Five Years

I can't believe Christmas has come and gone...and it's almost 2012!  This year has really flown by!

I love the Christmas season.  I love wearing boots and big jackets, seeing your breath in the crisp morning air, being wrapped in a blanket on the couch, and potato soup!  It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
And the stockings were hung...
Christmas Eve was a lot of fun.  We had dinner at Steve's house.  There was enough food to feed 5 more families!  We also had a white elephant gift exchange and then the annual Hunsaker Nativity.

Christmas day was fun!  We started the morning with our gifts, then headed over to Nate and Lalani's.  I also got to stop by David and Jessica's and watch Caiden open his gifts.  We went to church.  There was a wonderful musical program put together that really helped us get into the spirit of Christmas.  It's important to remember the reason for the season!  Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our Savior, and also his life and all that he did for us!  After church, we had delish potato soup and  Mom, Dad, and Sandra also stopped by.  I spent the rest of the evening playing with my new gift =)
Super awesome sewing/embroidery machine!  Thanks Darren =D

Did you have a Merry Christmas?

Our Weekend

Well, we had an eventful weekend over here!  How about you?  Darren and I got to watch my cutie nephew Brocky for the weekend!  My sister Kristy and her hubby went to NYC last Thursday.  Mom had all 5 of the fartin' Martin's till Friday evening.  Then the older 4 went to their other Grandma's while I got the baby =).  I was looking forward to a fun weekend.  But...the weekend had other plans...

When my mom dropped of Brock, she mentioned he had been a little warm and clingy.  So I took him home, gave him some medicine and put him to bed, no problem.
Then the fun started...  Friday night, I decided to wash my face with this sample face wash from Melaleuca.  First, I put just a little of the face lotion on my cheek just to see what would happen.  I waited a few hours to see if I'd get a rash or something, but nothing happened!  So what did I do?  I used it all.  Washed my face, then used the face lotion and went to bed.  I woke up around 6 am to give Brock a bottle and when I would blink, I could tell I was a little swollen.  But I didn't want to SEE how bad it was, so instead I got an ice pack, put it on my face, then went back to bed.  Brock woke back up around 8 so I got out of bed and...looked in the mirror.  I was SO swollen, my eyelids had 3 rolls.  You read that right, 3 ROLLS!  I had a chin dimple as well, and very...plump...lips.  I took a picture, but not sure I want to post it on's bad.  Lets just say, I looked a little like this...
Don't believe me?  Ask my husband...  I was SO MAD!  But that's what I get for trying a new face wash.  I ended up going to the doctor and getting a magic pill that made my face all better a short 24 hours later =).

Anyway, then poor Brock had a fever all weekend and was always sad and wanting to be held...  My husband is amazing.  He was up with Brock at 5 am till about 7 am on Sunday morning, rocking him, feeding him, trying to get him to go back to sleep, etc.  We loved having Brock, but it was just sad seeing him feeling to cruddy.  Poor guy...  Hopefully he's feeling better.  Thanks for letting us watch your little baby boy, Kristy!  Hope you had a fun time in NYC =)

Eventful weekend, that was!  How was yours?  Do you have all your Christmas shopping done?
