Catching up

A lot has happened since I last blogged. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my father-in-laws side of the family and yummy dessert with my mother-in-laws side. I made a yummy pumpkin chocolate chip cake from scratch that was delicious. I'll post recipe later. Then every year Brads grandma Cordy goes shopping on black Friday, this was my second year going. So Brad and I woke up at 5:00 am and met Grandma. We almost got all of our shopping done. We had lots of fun with Grandma.

We started at Target..... Not as crazy as last year

Then to radio shack... pretty much empty

Macy's..... pretty crazy! I think Grandma Cordy
and I smelled every perfume possible.

and last, but not least Costco

I love shopping and especially when I'm getting things for other people. I think I spoil my nieces a little to much!

So being the kind of person that I am, I decided to go to target today and get a tree. The one thing I love about Christmas is the smell of the Christmas tree when you first walk through the door. Since we don't have that much room in our cute little house, I decided to get a little charlie brown tree. Brad wouldn't let me get new ornaments because we don't have room for them, so I used last years. So here's the final product.... (please excuse the boxes, they are full of Levant shirts for sale )

I love this time of year, all the Christmas lights, cold weather, cuddling with Brad, and spending time with the families. Only 16 days tell Christmas and I'm really excited!!!

How fun-I love the tree! For our family room tree, the kids picked a 3' or so...I couldn't believe it, but they love it! Hopefully I will get pictures up soon! I love that you have a blog and am looking forward to hearing how you guys are! You probably know-but I think you are so amazing and have since your Beehive years! Thanks for being you!

How cute!! Hey atleast a charlie brown tree is better than a fake one. Trees are so expensive here so we got a fake one. We're not even going to be here so I figured it would be alright to get a fake one.
And I love the little note on the door you wrote to brad in the tree picture. Such a sweet wife :)
See you next week!
