it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We did it! We finally put up our Christmas tree. We retired the "teddy bear" tree this year and opted for a more "grown-up" theme.. blue and white.. we love it!

Woah, watch out where you swing that!

This tree stuff is fun!

Must explore the empty tree box

That's it, Avery... stick the lights right there!

Aww, so cute!

Here is the final result:

where to begin?

I have NO idea where to begin to recap the past 2 months. Last time I posted we were moving out of our condo. Now we're living in our house! We moved in this past weekend. Thanks to everyone who came out to help Brent move the furniture :) I did jack squat... well, I had the job of keeping Avery entertained.. not sure which job is more challenging ;) hehe. Avery is loving the extra room to roam around. She's still getting used to the fact we have more than 1 room in the downstairs.. I can't really turn a corner and be out of sight before she's calling out "momma!" to see where I've gone.

We did Christmas early with my side of the family while my sis and her fam were in town from North Dakota. We just did a few gifts for the kiddos... sooo fun! Avery LOVED my mom's Christmas tree and all the pretty ball ornaments. She quickly did some redecorating of the ornaments.

Avery loves to wear Brent's Patriot's ski cap:

Oh yeah, and did I mention this? :
