I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was wonderful! Great food, time with family, great food... :)
So yesterday, Dave took a vacation day and we spent the day as a family. Good times!! We went to lunch and then to Menards (cause heaven forbid we don't get some new decorations!!) For once, Dave didn't go too crazy. We just got 2 new small blow up things for the yard (cause we thought our big snowman was done) and a new big plastic Santa (our old one was VERY worn out!) Three trips to Menards later, the yard was finished! Why is it that you can never get all you need in the first trip?? I think the yard looks good this year - bright, but not Griswald-ish!
Today, we took Justin to cut down his first real Christmas tree. I'm usually a big fan of the fake tree (less mess and a lot less hassle) but for some unknown reason (it might have been the scrapping bug) the fake tree was NOT going to do this year! I was on a mission to let Justin cut down a tree. He was so cute! He insisted on bringing his own saw and wanted to cut down all the little trees he could get to. After about an hour (ok...maybe almost an hour and a half) I finally decided on a tree I liked and Dave and Justin got it cut down. It's currently sitting on the front porch waiting for Dave to come home and move furniture around so it can have it's own place in the living room. I can't wait to let Justin help me decorate it!
