Trimming the Tree

I decorated our little tree on my birthday as well - we found cool black ornaments and have some red and silver ones too - I think it came out pretty well! We are betting on how long it will take for the cats to get up into it - luckily I think most of the ornaments are shatterproof...

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hi everyone!
For my birthday, Jamie and I were planning on going to the zoo - however, the forecast called for 45 degrees - so we decided to go to the aquarium instead...which was good, since it was snowing like crazy (that wasn't in the forecast!) We then went to Steuben's - a really good restaurant/diner and I had caramel granola french toast made and served in a little cast iron skillet - it was so yummy! We then came home and played with the dog a little, and then I had to finish up my final design project for school. It was a pretty good birthday though :)

Our first Thanksgiving in the new house

Hi everyone! Jamie and I (and the dog) just finished eating Thanksgiving dinner - it was tasty! I made the best gravy I have ever made, which was lucky since the turkey was a little dry - not too bad though! We're going to rest and then have some pie and then pass out- just like Jamie and Macy in the picture.

Jamie put up some Christmas lights - although we definitely need more, it's a good start. We're excited to be able to decorate our house! We bought the house last year on Dec. 21st, and then I left to visit Florida, so we haven't had a proper Christmas in our house! We are going to set up the tree sometime this week - we need to get some more lights and ornaments, we really don't have many...though I have to make sure the ornaments are unbreakable, since I know our kitten is going to be up in the tree as soon as she can get to it. She likes to get into everything!

Hope everyone had a good turkey day! See you all soon hopefully!
