I really got into the Christmas season this weekend! On Saturday Garet and I got our Christmas tree. Guess where the tree came from?? BOONE, North Carolina! Even though I'm not from Boone, I visited friends there often enough, and it is only 2 hours from my parents. It's a little piece of home :) That night I had my work Christmas party at the Von Braun Center.
Garet actually went skiing with some friends today. I went to church, and man was I glad I did! They were doing a "Christmas Sunday" and the choir did an amazing job singing. I love our church! I have told many people, I do not like Christmas music - but I feel the need to clarify... I do not like the songs that they overplay on the radio 24/7, you know, the ones about hippopotamuses and two front teeth... but I really enjoy the ones about Jesus, and the true meaning of Christmas, and today I was NOT dissappointed! It was a great way to start the morning!
I finished putting up all our decorations. We gave Suzi a trial period with our Christmas tree... we weren't sure how she would do with a big "toy" in our living room (she loves to chew on sticks/branches/trees). She seems to not care at all - sooo I went ahead and decorated it.
When Garet and I lived in St. John, he gave me this decoration:
It is my surfing santa! I love it!! Too funny! Here is our tree and fireplace:
This weekend, of course, went by too fast! I am thinking that the days will fly by until it is Christmas and time for me to go see my family, I am so excited!
