Oh Christmas Tree!

We decorated our Christmas Tree tonight. We bought a new one on Black Friday, because the tree we had last year didn't make the move from Michigan. We'd had it for several years anyway, and it was time for a new one. I think it's also time for new decorations. What do you think? (Oh and I think it looks as if there's a big gap in the middle of the tree. It's been fixed) Also, excuse the mess. You know how it is, when you're moving everything around to put the Christmas tree up and all the decorations...

Speaking of decorations, I'm trying to get in touch with my crafty side. (Which is tough, since I have no crafty side) I have all this random leftover wrapping paper that's too small to wrap anything in. I need some ideas for easy homemade ornaments/decorations using this wrapping paper. A link with a picture would be nice. I need a visual. Please and thank you. :-)

In case you were wondering, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving. No pictures to show for it, but you'll have to believe me. The best part of all was that the girls wanted to stay with the GP's and Lauren and my wonderful family agreed! Nathan and I came back home to Louisville for 2 days and 3 nights. We rented movies we've been wanting to see (well maybe I've been wanting to see), ate at restaurants the kids never want to eat at, got some Christmas shopping done (10 am on Black Friday, not 4 am!)wrapped presents, and got a little decorating done. It was so nice having some time together w/o kids. Thanks again family!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Another one bites the dust!

Brooke lost tooth number 7 today. We were sitting in Sacrament meeting and she tapped me on the shoulder to tell me she lost it. She has a mouth full of missing teeth! We're still waiting for the other tooth on the other side to get a little more wiggly.

Not much else is going on here. Charlotte and I were sick this week. Charlotte's not all the way better yet. Still has a little bit of fever, but at least she's eating now. Needless to say, we've been cooped up in the house far too long. I'm going a little stir crazy. I plan to do some Pre-Black friday shopping tomorrow! I hate the crowds on Friday!!

Hope everyone has a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

Lunch with Brooke

Thursday we went and ate lunch with Brooke at school. It was her half birthday, after all. Her friends were all so sweet. Brooke wanted Charlotte to play at recess. Mostly Brooke's friends played with her. They loved her and want her to come back every day!

Louisville Zoo

Today was our first trip to the Louisville Zoo. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but Brooke isn't a big fan of zoo's. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I never let them "play" on the toys. We're at the zoo to see the animals, not play on the toys. If we want to play, we'll go to the park. Today we went with some friends, which always makes it better, and we did stop and play a few times. We went today because today Brooke had an early dismissal AND it was 70 degrees. Perfect zoo weather. Not too hot, not too cold. Just right. And in the middle of November. I'll take it whenever I can get it. My camera wasn't working right so I didn't get a whole lot of pictures, but here are the ones I did get.

Halloween 2010

Halloween started for us on Friday. Our church had Trunk or Treat, which is always a hit! There was a bounce hosue, hayrides, a bonfire, a parade of costumes, tons of kids, and of course, CANDY!!

Saturday, a botanical garden in town hosted trick or treating. Local businesses set up booths and handed out candy and free coupons. We got to go on another hayride, have our faces painted, and enjoy a magic show. Not to mention, we got to enjoy the beautiful grounds.

Sunday we were trick or treated out. We invited some friends over for some treats and games.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
