Christmas tree time!

We went tree hunting this weekend and now my house smells of Christmas! We didn't go to a tree farm but to the Naval Radio Station Jim Creek and for $15 we got to wander and pick out our own special tree. Eric loved being up there, if we stay in Washington I tihnk we'll move up to Arlington or further. The tree is bigger than we thought but its still pretty. The cats have been sleeping under it on our blue tree skirt and Sasha loves sniffing the branches. I'm just excited to have a tree and pretty lights and my ornaments on different branches.

Surprise Activity

The other day I surprised Eric with a Christmas craft. We decorated sugar cookies!

Hump Day

Friday, December 4, 2009 was our halfway point of Eric's enlistment. So he brought me home flowers (with much coaxing) He only has 2 1/2 years left and trust me, we're counting down!
