yep, it's only about 4 more days until we leave for new zealand!
from what we hear the weather is beautiful.
it'll be a nice change, considering we're stuck in a frozen tundra called indiana.
but a white christmas is always nice.
and so is spending time with our family on christmas eve.
our dad was talking about learning a christmas carol as a family.
that would be adorable.
kylie & mom on acoustic.
dad on trumpet.
mike on bass.
and me tapping or maybe on banjo.
that would be a really special thing to have recorded!
we'll probably do that tomorrow, on christmas.
i can't wait :)
we'll get up, open presents, have a nice breakfast, hang out with kylie at work for a while (bummer!),
then have a beautiful christmas dinner as a family.
i'll have to force everyone to take a family portrait somewhere in the mix.
maybe in the morning, in front of the tree, surrounded by the presents.
oh, i love my family.
