Oh Christmas Tree...

After recovering from some crazy Black Friday shopping, we got our tree on Saturday. We went to a local Christmas tree farm and picked out a BEAUTIFUL 7' Douglas Fir.

We got it all set up in the stand then went to help Dean's sister, Allison, and her fiance, Barry, move into their new house. We hung out with his family for a little while and had dinner with them. We went to the store and got lights and some ornaments for our tree. We came home later and decorate. Here is the final product...

I spent some time today working on this tree skirt. I'm very proud of it. I didn't have a pattern to use, just a lot of measuring. We think it looks great!

We put lights up outside the front of our house as well :)


This is the beautiful turkey that we made!!

Posing with my turkey!

I wanted to have Dean and Geno in the picture too :)

The place cards that I made.

One of the adult tables + Mary

The other adult table + Andrew
I didn't get a picture of the bar where the teenagers were seated.

We had a great holiday with a ton of food!
Thanks to everyone who contributed to our day :)

Random photos

Andrew decided that he wanted to be
a dog and wanted to play in Geno's crate.

While Anna was here over Thanksgiving, she knit GG a sweater!
He loves it!!
Thanks ANNA!

I think this picture says...
"Geno for President"

Andrew and Geno just hanging out


Andrew to the Allergist

I went with Amanda and Andrew to his allergist appointment. In addition to milk and eggs, this child is now allergic to peanuts. Poor kid.

Good thing he's not allergic to these puffs!

We went down the slide together at Chick-Fil-A!

I let him play with my wristlet. This is hilarious.

I know that I have been terrible about updating lately. Here is Geno wrapped in his early Christmas gift. I was putting him in his crate before leaving the house today and he was shivering. I got out this blanket that we were saving for him and wrapped him up.

I promise I will post about what we have been up to sometime this week!

Til then, GO STEELERS!!!!
