Our First Christmas Together!

Last Christmas was Rob and I's first Christmas together and needless-to-say it was quite interesting. We had just moved down to New Orleans, we had just got hired with a contractor, and we were living in a FEMA trailer. Now, as many of you know, those trailers don't have much room. We didn't have the room or the time to even consider decorating for Christmas. Christmas kind-of came and went in a blurr. We didn't even get to have our first Christmas tree together.
Although it is a little sad when I think about it, we are having so much fun this year. It feels like our first Christmas together. Last Saturday we went and chopped a tree down, went shopping for Christmas decorations (we only had about 4 ornaments for our tree, now we have about 15), went home and put up lights and our tree! It was so much fun! I never really realized how much fun it could be to decorate your own place! It just makes me want to curl-up next to my husband every night, with a cup of hot chocolate and watch Christmas movies! (Rob loves that!) Here are some pictures of our day:

Here is my buff husband carrying our Christmas tree after we chopped it

The tree must be decorated!

Here we are by our very first Christmas tree!

"cuz they love each other" (that's why you're in front of your Christmas tree)

He also said, "Tina says, "aachoo" and Rob says, "woooahh". :)

in response to your question about meeting karen kingsbury...

as a matter of fact i did. she had a book singing at her house and a friend of mine works with a lady that had kids who are on the same socker team as karen's kids and she had a book signing at her house (huge house too (like the flannagins in the books)) and my friend was invited by the girl that she works with and she took me and another friend of ours that's a huge karen kingsbury fan. it was great.
