December: Amanda turned 16 last week! Aah... I'm old. :-P Decorated for Christmas, and now it's Dead week, which is anything but dead with 4 assignments, 2 quizzes and a term paper due. Sunday we are signed up to compete in the intermural 500 card tournament to kick off finals week. On Friday the 16th, Mike graduates and then we go straight into a busy Christmas break- DeWaard's on Saturday (as well as Amy and Matt's wedding, CONGRATS), Mike's family on Sunday. Mike (most likely) starts his new full time position that Monday and we'll be in Mount Vernon/Pleasant Valley over Christmas weekend.
