Christmas Decorating Time

Then we started to decorate the inside. So, we invited my family over to help us decorate the tree. I made my first home made lasagna for dinner (see pic. below) which turned out very yummy. And, it was really easy to make! Then we started putting out all of the Christmas decor. We bought a new 7 1/2 foot tree this year. I decorated it with a Martha Stewart collection called Twilight. It's purple and silver, it's beautiful. So, we are all set for our company to come and stay and for us to host our first Christmas Eve in our new home.

So, Christmas time is near and we have been busy getting our house all decorated. I didn't realize just how much Christmas stuff I have. It is crazy. So, first we started with decorating the outside of the house, which was a lot of fun. I love being able to have our own home and be able to put anything out. I don't have pictures of that right now, they are on my other camera. But, the house looks beautiful on the outside.

Frosty was trying to help decorate too....didn't help so much.

So, it's been a month....

So, during the past month we have had a few things going on. It was Thanksgiving during this time. We went to Arizona for the weekend and had a great family feast all together. It was also my grandmother's birthday that same day. Then on that Saturday it was my mother and Charles's Anniversary and Brayton's dads birthday. Just before we went away we started having new flooring put in the house. We were having hardwood floors and tile layed throughout the whole downstairs of our house. It took them a week to get the whole thing finished. So, we lived in a very messy house for awhile. Here is a picture of how the wood floor turned out.
