Getting ready for the holidays!

Well, about a week before Thanksgiving, Mike and I went and bought a couple of Christmas crafts. Okay, maybe a few more than a couple lol. So we went to Michaels and got some cute stuff :) We got a tree and a snowman… thing... that had holes for lights and I got to paint them. Well this is how they turned out... supper cute right? Then we got a couple of ornaments that Mike and I painted together! They turned out REALLY cute! Mikes is the Gingerbread man and the snowman and he did an AWESOME job! My favorite is the gingerbread man :) I did the rest. I also go these two snowmen that I painted also and they turned out great! I was so proud of myself for making my own decorations and for cheep! All of that plus the paint and supplies were only $30! I think I did good! The weekend before Thanksgiving, Mike and I got our VERY FIRST CHRISTMAS TREE! It is an awesome tree and Mike liked that it started out as a Charlie Brown tree! We had lots of fun putting it up and Mike was very good at it all! About 3 hours and 800 lights later, our tree was finished! I of course had to have it up before the first of December so that we can enjoy it for the rest of the year! Then this last week I went and got a wreath and some berries and ribbon and made a cute wreath that is now on my door! I can't believe I figured out how to do all that! I love Christmas! This is one of my favorite parts of being married, doing all this fun stuff together like buying our first Christmas tree, and doing crafts together, listening to Christmas music under our lighted Christmas tree... It is all so wonderful! The only thing is... is has HARDLY snowed yet! I WANT IT TO SNOW WITH ALL OF MY HEART! Well... I am sure it is soon to come :)
