|Joshua's 2010 Graduation from BYU-Idaho|
My parents and in-laws made the trip as well and we had fun hanging out in our hotel together. Rexburg was super cold (they lovingly call it Iceberg for good reason) and I was worried it would be hard to breathe but I was blessed--no problems at all. They held commencement in the new BYU-I Center and it is a beautiful facility. Afterwards we helped Josh move out of his apartment and started for home. The weather had other ideas however so we opted to spend an extra day so we could travel through Wyoming in the daylight hours. We had some hair-raising roads periodically but it could have been much worse. Had we not left when we did, we would have been stuck for several days because of snow storms and closed roads.
Once I got home, shopping started with a vengeance on Monday morning, the 20th. I have never been so unprepared for the holidays before. But with some online help and determination, I had things all purchased two days before Christmas. Rheid and I had a marathon wrapping session that night and finally the Christmas tree didn't look bleak due to an extreme lack of presents.

Santa brought me a Nook ereader and I've had fun trying to figure out how it works. Next I need to learn how to find free books to download!
Now on to 2011!
