Jingle Bells MY WAY!!!

(please sing to Jingle Bells)
Come on....start with the tune......"Dashing through the snow"....
but please use my lyrics :)
"Dashing in the stores,
trying not to take much time,
wondering how I got,
in this mess right now."
my shopping isn't done,
my wrapping hasn't begun
But just remember one simple thing
frantically, frantically
shopping through the mall
Running home to wrap presents
before Colin comes through our door.
Cutting paper, cutting paper
I cut my own dang finger
Oh, hurry shove it under the tree
& hurry and clean up all my things.
(Verse two: incase you're lost)
So when he did come home
I thought I would just die
If he did not notice
all the gifts under our tree.
But did I mention this
how much I love my guy
Because he said with a great big smile
"What the Heck"
(okay it doesn't fit in the song but hey...give me a break)
Oh, mission complete, mission complete
right now I can relax
My guy is happy my presents are done
oh, Santa hit our house up first
No Santa? No Santa?
Colin what do you mean?
what do I look forward to now?
He says with another handsome smile.....
"hey Dork, YOU'VE GOT ME!!"

Colin's FIRST amazingly awesome blog post

colin: "shel? whats your password for the blog?"
shel: "why?"
colin: "just tell me!"
*she types in the password and realizes whats going on*
shel: "you don't even know what you're doing!"
colin: "yes i do!"

Well, this is proof that EVEN a GUY can blog...

I don't think Shel got to blog about what happened just BEFORE November 13th...


Got to take a ride in the...

Shel went out one last time with her mom and sisters as a "SINGLE LADY" Now she can't sing that Beyonce song anymore... :)

They went out for a WILD night...I'm pretty sure I didn't get most of the details of what went on, but I'm sure they had a lot of fun!


Many many things have been going

on in the Merrills' lives since

the BIG DAY!

Most Importantly,

Shel became the newest member of

the Merrill Family!

We just recently went up to flagstaff. We had really been needing to just get away, and a ROAD TRIP was exactly the thing to make us forget about everything else!

As you can see, we had A BLAST in Flagstaff!! we got to bundle up because it was FREEZING and we got to see Cecily at NAU's holiday dinners

We had a lot of fun walking around

downtown and going into the shops!

And of course we had to take

advantage of some photo


This is my favorite picture of shel!

we found a bunch of cool spots in the alleys

We've really enjoyed being in our new place and we are slowly but surely getting everything put together... (photos mainly for the benefit of Granparents overseas)

This process should move along much quicker now that winter break has finally arrived!! Which also means that Christmas is right around the corner!! Shel decorated our tree which looks AMAZING and she is doing the 12 DAYS of Christmas for me! :)
