Been a while

It's been a while since I've post. So much has happened that I am going to have to post an update sooner or later but for right now we'll keep it short and sweet :)

December has arrived. In our house the tree and decor have been put up. However, this year we did it differently. Last year the girls helped us this year we put them to bed and did it alone. It was much needed between Dave and I. And it was a HUGE surprise when the girls woke up from nap time and saw the tree!! They were so excited, you would have thought I bought home a pony or something lol :) I did my tree different this year too. (we are on the different kick this month). Normally I do just plain color Ornaments. This year, I pulled out the ones that we've gotten as gifts as newly married couple, 1st home, 1st baby 2005, 1st baby 2006 and some as Xmas gifts. I normally don't LOVE those kinds but this year I do LOVE them. My tree ROCKS may I say. I never say that. This year I love love love my tree and stare at it every night. I tell Dave every night I love the tree, he just laughs.

So our house is all ready for Xmas with snow and everything. The outdoor stuff is out and lite and looks GREAT. Thanks to my wonderful husband. The only thing missing is gifts under the tree. Because the girls are so excited we can't put any under the tree, they think they can unwrap them.

Happy December everyone!!
