Last night I woke up to comfort Isaac and after putting him back to bed I got some really intense hiccups, like one every four seconds. I tried drinking water upside down, holding my breath; I even tried my secret hiccup remover routine (which is holding my breath while drinking water and waiving my arms all around). There seemed to be no end to them. While lying in bed waiting for the next scare attempt from Cody (who was needless to say, so ready to go back to sleep) I wondered if the hiccups were in rhythm with my heart so I placed my pointer finger and thumb near the limp nodes on my neck, tilted my head up and squeezed. Immediately they were gone. Not sure if that was just luck or a dynamite way of getting rid of the hiccups. What ever it was we were pleased as pie to get back to sleep.

We had a merry Christmas with Mom, Dad, and Leah at our home. There was music, hiking, hot tubbing, In and Out, and of course GAMES.
We spent a day in Tombstone Arizona touring the old stomping grounds of Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holiday. It was hard not to take on a cowboy accent as walked through saloons and rode on a horse and coach.
We celebrated our Thanksgiving with the Decker side. I made my very first turkey. It was a contest between my brother Seth and me and hands down he won. We enjoyed a hike up to Camel Back Mountain. Unfortunately the flu went around in my parents house, most everyone got it except for Cody (lucky guy).
