Christmas, Christmas Time is here (in my Chipmunk voice)

It's been a while since I made a post, so this is what happens, YOU GET 2 (or more) posts in one day.  LOL.  I just had to show everyone my first Christmas tree in the new house.  We had no idea it was going to be so tall, but it works for us.  The colors are purple (my fav), teal and silver.


By the way:  Just thought I'd throw out there that I really want a KitchenAid mixer underneath this tree in the near future!  Doesn't matter who gets it, as long as it appears.

Home Improvements

The house is now undergoing some changes.  I mentioned this in an earlier post, and I promised to post pictures soon.  Well soon is relative, LOL!  Anyway, the room over the garage was never completed during construction, and it was always in our plan to add more square footage to the house.  I just didn't know we would be doing it so soon.  Anyone who knows my husband knows that once an idea is in his head, he won't rest until it is finished.  So we (really just he and his dad) got started with insulation and sheetrock.  I'm happy to say they have come quite a long way in just a matter of weeks.  The plan is to be done by the new year, or shortly thereafter (a more realistic goal).

Week 1:

Week 2:

UPDATE:  We now have walls up.  Pictures coming soon!
