Balancing School and Money.

So school is well....... going. Ben's finals have already started and he has been a little stressed about them but I know he will do great the only concern we are having is the fact that money is currently nonexistent and he can only work so many hours with school and all and school is really expensive here and loans only go so far. It doesn't look like we are going to get into BYU this semester. Bummer but we will try again for summer. We know we are where we are suppose to be. I am just a little stressed about money and now here comes Thomas' first Christmas and I just want him to have a good one. I know he won't remember but I will. I just keep think when school is finally done it will get better. So that is my current stress. Thanks for listening.

Oh Megaroooo!

It's going to be a great Christmas! Your little family will always remember these days. Embrace them and enjoy them. Lucky you to be going to school and starting on this path now! Jake and I always wished we had gone to school and sacrificed earlier! We love you and our prayers are with you :)

Little kid toys are cheap! You'll have a great Christmas and it will be the one memories are made of! Relax and enjoy the season, make cookies, play Christmas music, and eat ramen! It will pass all to soon!

Love you lots!

Amen- to you sisters post:) I have no money myself after closing my preschool-first time in ten years! We went to DisneyLand last year...this year, we are getting one family gift...most likely a new cheap computer. (I'm at the library :) Jaden says he wants to dress up as a vampire! He has no clue what Christmas is-and he's 4.

They are all right Megan. I know it doesnt deam like it now, but you will look back and miss this time when a thousand dollars would change your world.

I remember the christmas we had $20 each to spend on eachother. Brady got a belt and a wallet, he bought me my George Washington prayer at Valley Forge print... just the print, no frame. It was a year before I could afford to frame it. But it is one of my most treasured pocessions.

Thomas will not notice what is under the tree, but he will feel the love and excitement that fills you home when you remember the true meaning of the season.

love you!!!
