Oh Christmas Tree
Because of that we were both giddy to travel home this weekend, and I kicked my feet like an excited five year old the whole three hour drive.
We had tons of stuff to do, people to visit, surprise parties to attend, family functions, decorations to put up - we were running around like mad the whole time we were there. It was great though because with so much going on we were able to take our minds off the past month's events.
Yesterday afternoon the husband and I went and cut down our Christmas tree. We picked a little 5 footer since we had to bring it back in the trunk of our car - plus, since we travel part way home through Minnesota, they have all kinds of crazy restrictions on what they'll let cross through the state.
The husband was very excited to cut the tree, as you can see. Oh, and we named the tree Roland.
Now the decorations are all on and I can start to put away all the empty bins that have been littering my living room floor for several weeks now.
I still have at least half my shopping to do, but at least I know everything I need to buy and will be able to go out a couple evenings and get everything else I need.
Before you know it Christmas will be over and will be on to the grind of January. But one highlight is our trip in February! The husband had today off and went and got our passports renewed - Mexico is only a couple months away now and the line-ups at the passport office are a couple hours deep at any given time now. Whoo, it's coming up quick!
