Christmas Craziness

With Christmas being the busiest time of the year at both Target and at UPS Matt and I have been incredibly busy these last few weeks... hence the lack of blog posts.

Matt has been working from around 12:45 every morning until as late as noon most days, and I have been working from 3PM to midnight most nights. Although it doesn't make for much time together it is an excellent arrangement being that we never have to pay for daycare or a babysitter.
Along with our work craziness we have also been busy trying to decide where to live. We finally decided on renting a really nice townhouse about 10 minutes north of where we live right now. On the main floor it has a large living room, dining room, half bath, kitchen, pantry, and huge storage closet, and upstairs has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry room. It also has a two car attached garage. It is about the same distance from both of our jobs, but about 10 minutes further from our church and most of our friends. Our first day of the new lease is January 15th, and are going to rent a truck and move on Saturday, January 31st. We can't wait to have the space, and be in a safe family neighborhood! I posted pictures on our Sharesite at http://mcgurnfam.shutterfly.com/. Here is our front door:

Although we have been insanely busy, Jackson is oblivious and doing excellent. Christmas presents for him have been coming in the mail almost daily from friends and family. He also now has 3 Christmas outfits. One can be for Christmas Eve, and I am sure we can go though two on Christmas day at the rate he spits up. We will be sure to take lots of pics. Speaking of pics I also have some new ones of Jack on the Sharesite, but here are a few of my favs:
On Friday night my parents, sister, and Grandpa will be driving out here to celebrate Christmas with us! Then in January Matt's mom will be coming to see us. Well, Matt, Jackson and I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
