O Christmas Tree

So...last Sunday we went to Lowe's and got our Christmas tree. Last year's tree was very shabby on one side and we didn't notice until we got home with it so I made 100% certain that our tree this year was spot on!!! I think I did a pretty good job!!

First...to pick out the tree.

Matthew REFUSED to look at the camera, he was too excited about the trees.





Luckily, my husband is a MUSCLE man...lol...and was able to get the tree off of the car and carry it in the house all by himself...since I shouldn't be lifting heavy items =). Matthew was so cute saying beep beep right behind Seth as he walked through the house holding our giant 7 foot tree. (BTW...I said that we would get a small tree this year..but after seeing this one...I couldn't resist)





Matthew thought that blowing on the lights would make them go off...he was mesmerized by the lights and would say oooooooo when Seth would plug them back in.







The finished product!!!!



Merry Christmas!!!

Pictureless but Thankful Thanksgiving

So...I haven't felt much like taking pictures recently. Today I thought about it but just didn't take the time. We had a great day at home. I let Publix do all the work for Turkey day this year. I only have 5 weeks left in my pregnancy and I wasn't feeling up to traveling to Naples or cooking. Publix had a great deal for $40.00. A 7-10 pound turkey...dressing...mashed potatoes and gravy...cranberry sauce...and a cranberry apple cobbler. The turkey was great...but I still say that there is nothing like mamma's dressin' and grandma's mashed potatoes.

Matthew enjoyed the day and really liked the turkey. Tomorrow I hope to do some shopping (only not at 4 in the morning). I am going to wait until later in the day to go.

Saturday we are going to get the Christmas tree so hopefully I will have some pictures to share by the end of the weekend.

Happy Turkey Day everyone!!!
