I've been tagged...

Sheri tagged me! So keeping the spirit of the other girls, here are 6 things you probably don't know about me...

6. I know Sign Language. I took 2 years in high school and another 2 years in college. I can pretty much sign anything I say. When I was in my "prime," it was like English didn't even exist for me and I could just sign without thinking. My dreams started to be in Sign Language then too. Now I'm rusty, but I'm teaching my girls.

5. I have a degree in Economics from BYU. I love business and math, so combine the two and you get Econ. When my time is my own again (meaning my kids are steady in school), I'll go back and get my Master's. I'd like to teach on the college level.

4. I am a miracle baby. My parents were told by numerous doctors that they could not have children. In fact, they moved to the county I grew up in because the adoption time was shorter. Lo and behold, 7 years later... there I was. That's also why I do not have any siblings.

3. I can't fit into my wedding rings. Two babies later, and I've come to the realization that I will never be a size 4 again. Matthew offered to get my wedding rings resized. But (being the difficult one that I am .... my husband just said "amen" to that!) I prefer white gold now to the yellow gold that I had. So recently we went out and he bought me new ones. :)

2. I am a Grey's Anatomy freak! I can't get enough of Greys, I could watch reruns all day. If you don't watch it, START! I feel like the characters are actually real people in my life. I know how crazy it sounds, but that's my one show that I sacrifice anything for. Everyone and everything must be silent so I can watch it, no phone, no talking, no interrupting. I just LOVE IT! Matthew's a closet Grey's freak, he's in denial but he's into it too.

****I have two #1's****

1. Words cannot express how much I LOVE CHRISTMAS! Everyone has a holiday they love, well mine is Christmas... I love the cooking and baking. I love the music. I love the colder weather. I love the feeling that Christmas is coming. My Christmas trees would be up today, if we weren't leaving for Disneyland tomorrow (and my energy has been going to packing us and the van). But within 24 hours of us coming home, my 6 (yes I said 6) my 6 Christmas trees will be up. We already started last night listening to Christmas music through dinner and then throughout the rest of the evening. (I've gotta say too, Matthew was shocked I hadn't put the trees up yesterday.)

1. I have the best looking husband in all the world :)


That's it!

I only watch Grey's because i am still sitting there after watching Survivor. If i miss it, it isn't then end of the world. I think you are crazy to be so into a FAKE show! But even with that, I still love you very much!

I have to say this to my oldest Boyd nephew... "And Survivor is reality?" (Granted, you didn't say it was either) :-) Forgive me, Matt. I just couldn't help myself and you know how much Aunt Julie and I love you all!

Have a great time at Disneyland. I love everything Walt Disney has done. I can remember the chills I got when I first saw the castle at Disneyworld. I said to myself, "Look at that. There really is a castle!" I remember the t.v. show when Tinkerbell would fly around the castle and spread fairy dust on everything... I must be left brained to be into the fantasy aspect of it all!

Thank God we have had people like Walt Disney and Jim Henson in our lives. They made our lives fuller with laughter and imagination.

Love,
Uncle Tom

Let us know what works for you guys! We have Annual Passes and can go anytime. Jack (and Derek) would love it. Nicole thinks we go more for me than the girls, but it is really neat seeing their reactions to everything.
