Christmas Firsts

This was our first Christmas putting lights on our very own house, very exciting. Tyler stapled each light to
point the same direction, he says it was for me, but I know the truth. (The color of our house will be changing next summer
I hope! I thought I should add that) It was also our first year to put up a really, real Christmas tree. I love that pine smell!
Allie pulled it on herself the first day, and hasn't touched it since...lesson learned. Another first is we recently purchased an SUV to
accomodate our growing family, it was my first time ever driving one, and boy do I feel like queen of the road. It's HUGE compared to
my cute little orange hatchback (Which my sister bought). We are going to IF for Christmas this year, and then going to Logan to visit
Tyler's brother and his family. We are looking forward to the break. My 15 year old brother; Jake will be coming back with us at Christmas and finishing out the school year here. I'm grateful to have an opportunity to build a stronger relationship with him. Have a Merry Christmas!

Your house looks Beautimous! Nice Job Tyler on the lights and awesome job Mandy on the Tree! only thing missing is the snow. Glad to hear you'll be making the round over Christmas... probably your last chance before you get too far along. When will you be in I.F.?

My hubby is the same way with the lights! I want to see a picture of your new car! We just bought a SUV this past February. It is nice to have now that I have three kids. Your tree looks beautiful!!
