Remember the cute card my niece sent us - with the clothespins and mittens? We received this one from her sister a few days later. Their mom is very creative, and I'm thinking the apples didn't fall far from the tree! Thanks, Anni, I love this card!
We had a white Christmas - like a little bit of snow every single day!! But it's very pretty, so no complaints here. I took this one afternoon just before the entire sky turned orange. I loved the way the sun was highlighting some of the trees with a beautiful glow.
I never did get a photo of our tree with presents underneath. I told you it was a little different this year!! I've had a very nice artificial tree for the last 10-12 years. This year when I pulled it out, it looked pretty tuckered. I was planning to replace it at an after-Christmas sale, but now I'm thinking this little sheet metal tree is perfect! It just feels like the perfect "Charlie Brown" tree to me.
Everyone was saying I should at least hang a few ornaments on it - but to me, the holes and stars look like ornaments. I really totally love it. We'll see how I feel next year. :)
Last, but certainly not least, we have some news to share. In mid-April, Mark and I will be grandparents for the first time!!!! We are soooooooo excited. Sara looked wonderful while they were here - and Ryan is going to be a wonderful daddy. This is a small teddy bear that we put under the tree for this much anticipated baby boy. You will be hearing tons about him, for sure!!
