2009 Facebook Christmas Card

I did not really have time to whip up a beautiful witty Christmas card this year so you all get this, a sweet facebook note, try to feel the love.

2009 for the Harris family was oh so full of excitement. We moved to Springfield Virginia in May for an Internship Larry has in Washington D.C. We went everywhere and saw everything, Even the Obama girls! My parents came for a week with John and David and we went to Niagara Falls, The Hill Camora Pageant and other church sites, We wouldn't have made it there without them.

We moved back to Utah in August, Larry drove across country in 36 hours with his intern-buddy back and I flew :) Larry then started studying AGAIN for the LSAT after taking a small summer break off of studying it and we started school again in August. Larry took the LSAT in September and did fabulous and then starting filling out application after application. He is done now with them all and just received his first acceptance letter, I know many more will be piling in! We are counting down the days till graduation in April!! Larry is the best husband working hard to finish school and provide for our growing family. He makes sure I have everything I need and is so patient and loving with me.

As for me I started nursing school, and have a very hate love relationship with it. It feels like I should be graduated from college but that is just how it goes with the nursing profession (ask anyone) I love working with the babies and giving shots is pretty fun. I am still working at the WSU Bookstore and found out right before Halloween I was pregnant. We are due July 2nd with an unknown gender at the moment :) I'm happily 14 weeks just about and am starting to feel better. I lucked out and have not vomited once! We are so excited and feel so blessed Heavenly Father would send us a sweet perfect baby, I can't wait!!

We are so grateful for this time of year to be able to be with family and friends and have the gospel in our lives. I am grateful that we are able to celebrate the birth of Christ and to share his message of peace and love this time of year. I am grateful to be sealed for time and all eternity to Larry and to my family and that Christ is the center in our lives.

Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, and happy Christmas!
Love Larry, Ann Marie and Baby.

Tis The Season..

This morning while being squished up against the wall in bed because we are not use to sleeping in a full size bed, we have a queen....

I was thinking this will be me and larry's 4th Christmas together.

Time flies, we meet each other right around this time 3 years ago and now we are sharing it together for a 4th and next year we will have a squishy little baby.

I'm celebrating this Christmas season:

The new life that is growing inside me, what a blessing we have received
My husband and all his hard work
My parents for trying to be supportive the best way the can
My grandpa Draper, this baby will be his 25th great-grand child
Having great healthy and a so far easy pregnancy
My brothers especially John serving faithfully in Japan
A car, it has issues but at least we have it!
Grants, scholarships, loans-we couldn't get through school without them
Good books, like Harry Potter
Yummy food
The birth of our Savior and the message he brought
Temples and the sealing power
my husband again :) We really do love each other

more to come later I'm making chex mix and the off to the Martin family sunday dinner.

Happenings of Late

Here is whats up with us lately...

Fall semester ended and AnnMarie got a sweet nursing scholarship :)

Went to the Doctor on Tuesday and the baby is not giving up what it is down south...not yet I tried to shake it around to move the legs... did not work.

We are in EDH and loving every warm moment of it.

I have been feeling really good but very sick today.

Larry got accepted into his first law school so far via e-mail, so fancy, its in New Hampshire.

We have been playing with are cute little Martin family clan every day, they make me laugh.

Larry is a hot stud husband who is letting me do nothing on vacation and he loves sleeping in.

We get to talk to John who is serving a mission in Japan on christmas, very exciting!

Pretty much that is all that is happening with us right now, boring for most people but perfect for us :) Hope everyone is going well!

I am going home in exactly 7 days!! I know that Utah is where I live, and that me and Larry are building our home together here but El Dorado Hills has always been my home for 20 years and I look forward to going back almost everyday all year round. I love where I grew up and was blessed to have tons of friends and have the gospel strong in our community. I love the hills and the Target down the street, and the one in Folsom I worked in, and I love the restaurants and my parents house, and the smell, and the familiar roads with names and not dumb grid system numbers.

I love sitting on the couch and watching movies with my family and seeing friends families that I look forward to seeing each year, and the SHOPPING. Sorry Utah you just can't beat my beautiful mostly sunny California. I can't wait!!!
