It was such a beautiful afternoon when we went to pick out our tree...always one of my favorite days of the year.
I mentioned in the gift shop while we were waiting to pay for our Chrismtas tree that I liked this snowman. Brady insisted on buying it for our house. I tried to talk him out of it but he said it was his money and Christmas is about giving. It's one of those moments I will never forget....and will always be one of my favorite decorations.
It's one month today that we've had Steffi. She's such a sweet, loving, feisty dog! She's doing so well with potty training...other than not wanting to be outside when it's raining. I've only had one breakdown since we've had her where I may have gone to bed crying and asking Eric how long dogs usually live for? In my defense, it wasn't a good time of the month and we had had cold rainy weather for six straight days. And, although I complain that it feels like we have a 2 year old in the house and I'm not always ready to get up in the morning when she is ready...she is growing on us more than I could have ever imagined.
The only cookies we made this Christmas were oreo cookie truffles. They are Brady's favorite and he could make them all by himself if he wanted. I can't believe that's the only cookie/candy that we made. But, with working full time, Brady's crazy tennis schedule, and a new puppy...it's the best I could do. I will try and do better next year. :)
We had our annual Santa get together last Sunday with friends.
Brady told Santa he wants a lap top.
I've been practicing with my new camera. :) I think Eric was tired of me telling him I was the only one in the world without a dslr...and so he bought me one on Cyber Monday. I knew it was going to take some getting used to...but I feel clueless. I read things online to try and learn my camera...but I'm thinking I may need to take a
very basic class. I'm excited though...and very thankful.
Happy Christmas Eve!
