Christmas Eve at work..Bah Humbug

Here I am on Christmas Eve pretending to work. BahHumbug. I would much prefer to be at home with my fam. ANd the longer I sit here, the more it makes me miss my sweet twin/best friend Jenn. So...I have to control myself. Pretty soon I may have to turn on some Thistle Hair the Christmas Bear to bring me some joy.
So...I am like a little kid at Christmas. Anticipating Christmas morning. Its not really the presents(though those are nice). It is the cheesiness of it all.I love me some cheese:)
I am really contemplating this season how Jesus emptied himself of recieving glory and came down to earth as a man. Wow...I am really feeling challenged to live out the rest of Phill 2, doing nothing out of selfish ambition or empty conceit. Wow. So much of my life is all about me. me. me. How does this work for me. How does it make mre feel. Ect. So in 2008 I really want the Holy Spirit to show me how to empty myself for others....You all can hold me accountable.
This weekend was great. I got to hang out with one of my best friends, Casey on Sat...We had a blast. And of course drank a Grande pumpkin spice latte(decaf for me) in honor of you Jenn.....I also got to spend Friday night at Karen and Bill's house with Kellie too. It was good Sluder family bonding time. Bill spoiled us with good food, including cinnamon rolls for breakfast. I can't remember the last time I Had cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
Saturday night the Humbert fam came over. WE had a good time with the Dirty Santa gift exchange, however I was bummed that my gift got stolen twice(it was a vibrating neck massager)..who wouldn't want that...hehhe.
Sunday at church was great. What a blessing to worship Jesus. The sermon was on how God can do the impossible just as he did in Mary. It really strengthened my faith for the next year.
Finally we had lunch with Don and Debbie Sapp and Beth and Kevin. It felt like old times. It was a great reunion. I love those folks.
Alright enough boring details. I will try to post about Christmas day tommorow and add pictures.

Hey 'Chelle,
Just wanted to tell you I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience at the doctor. I think you need to get another one. Nobody wants someone rushing them and not listening and talking to you when you're pregnant. Little peanut is very cute! Hee hee! I hope this message gets on your blog. I had all kinds of trouble trying to sign up to Google. It says I can have a blog now. Hmmmm...that wasn't what I was trying to accomplish. I really don't have anything to blog about. I went to Jennifer's blog, but it doesn't look like she's using it. Well, I love you and the Gingerbread man too. Glad your lock-in went okay.
Love,
Aunt Brenda
