Also: We had a basketball game this morning and the girls won by three! I may have a heart attack before I'm 25.
Our "family photo"/self portrait. We tried the timer and failed miserably.
Our lights :) Brent did a great job hanging the icicles lights... we had a few chunks that occasionally didn't want to work, and the strand over the garage to the right never worked. Bummer. But they looked fantastic!
A stuffed dog named "Atticus." :) Attached to his collar was a note to Brent that he could get a real puppy. This has been something he has always wanted...and something my fear of dogs has kept at bay. Well, I decided--and changed my mind a million times-- that Brent doesn't ask for much at all...and so I REALLY surprised him! We immediately started looking at puppies and in about 5 minutes Brent is going to walk through the door with our new little boxer puppy [girl...so we couldn't name her Atticus.] More of an update on this later. And yes, I'm terrified.
We did spend Christmas day with my family and Brent's. It was wonderful. And our nephews are excited about our new puppy. Heck, they were pretty excited about this stuffed one too! :)I hope your Christmas' were all fantastic! We are going to celebrate with my family today and tomorrow... the joy just keeps on coming!
Happy New Year as well...
And Happy Birthday, Lesa!
