Do A Jigsaw Puzzle

Yesterday we had Christmas with my mom's side of the family. After my grandparents left, the rest of us were bored. So we did a puzzle. We are really good puzzle do-ers. Awesome puzzle do-ers. We finished this 500 piece puzzle in about an hour. I take credit for the orange truck-sled thingie and most of the sky. Phillip says that this doesn't count as doing a jigsaw puzzle, as I had assistance, but I think it counts, right?

Hold a Bird

Okay, this was a long time ago, but I just got the picture. My hair was even long when I completed this task.

I am afraid of birds. I think that they are going to peck me to death. To tackle my fear, I decided to hold one, a big one. This is my brother's fiance Erin's new bird Piper. He is a baby parrot, and I'll admit that he is pretty. Pretty scary. I look excited in this picture, but it is not excitement, it is terror. Holding Piper may have helped my bird fear a little. Last time I was at their house, I petted Erin's other bird, Valentine. He is smaller. Smaller is good.

Start Taking Vitamins

I'll admit it. I have never taken vitamins. Ever. Until tonight. My doctor has been trying to get me to take a multivitamin since I started dental school. It's taken me three years to listen to him. I've heard that they can make your stomach upset, especially with the amount of iron my multivitamin has in it. I took it with a cupcake, so I hope that counts as enough food! I now am getting the following vitamins and minerals daily (we'll make Phillip be my vitamin policeman and make sure I keep it up):

% Daily Value
Vitamin A - 63%
Vitamin C - 250%
Vitamin D - 100%
Vitamin E - 67%
Thiamin - 88%
Riboflavin - 85%
Niacin - 90%
Vitamin B6 - 400%
Folic Acid - 100%
Vitamin B12 - 50%
Biotin - 12%
Calcium - 38%
Iron - 83%
Iodine - 100%
Zinc - 100%

Send out Christmas Cards

We just sent out our Christmas cards a few days ago. It still seems weird to see us as "The Morgans." This was the only picture that we got with LuLu at the wedding, so we had to use it!
