Merry Christmas everyone. so i'm so sorry that i haven't written in so long but i have some big news! Christmas day we are leaving for China for almost 4 weeks. how awesome is that! brian's family lives there with his two little brothers (9 yrs old and 11 yrs old) and they said all they wanted for christmas was to see Navy. So off we go with an all expenses paid trip to beijing!! whoohoo! Brian and i lived there for 8 months after we got married and have been anxious to get back ever since. i's so ready for some kung pao chicken and some cheap shopping. navy will also have her first birthday there so we will have to go to the forbidden city or tianamen square then with a cake for some cool pictures and awesome memories. i hope everyone is doing well. we still live in glendale, ca and are loving it. i'm still wearing tee-shirts here everyday and sitting out on my porch eating breakfast in the warm sunshine. i am so excited to spend a winter with no snow after 6 years in rexburg. i'll write another post or two from china but until then have a merry chrstmas and a happy new year.
