"I'll be hooooome for Christmas..."

Hello all! SO I thought id post a few random things that have been going on lately. I finally sent out our Christmas cards! This was the first year that ive done them so it was kinda fun ♥ I tried to find everyone's addresses but if you didn't get one, heres what they looked like and have a Happy Holiday! :0)

So I saw this on a friend's blog and it looked like so much fun that i decided to do it too...a ginger-bread house making CONTEST! We went to the store and bought tons of graham crackers, candy and icing! Matt was talkin' all sorts of crap insisting that 'his will be waaay cooler than mine' and 'i dont have a chance' and so on...so i switched on my competition mode and we went at it ;0) THIS is what we came up with...This was MY ginger bread house...

And this was MATT'S ginger bread.......ruins! LOL

When he saw my mad ginger bread house making skillz he gave up and started eating his building materials ;0) Better luck next year mi ammore! We got our Christmas tree up a couple weeks ago and i finally got around to taking pics of it! I LOVE having a christmas tree in my house and would keep it up ALL YEAR LONG if i could get away with it! ;0)

Heres a pic of my favorite ornament. Every year, for as long as i can remember, when it came time to decorate the Christmas tree, i would hunt for this ornament first and carefully find a perfect spot for it on the tree...When Matt and i got married, my mom let me go through our Christmas ornaments and take any that i wanted...so now i still have my favorite ornament to hang up every year ♥

Im so excited that Matt and i get to be with our families for Christmas! To me, thats what Christmas is all about..I hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS ♥
