I hope you all had a great holiday!

We had a nice one - our first as a married couple! Thursday we spent Thanksgiving here in town with Michael's parents, then drove up Friday morning to East Texas to celebrate with my side of the family.

We had a great time at both! Saturday afternoon we decided we wanted to cut down our first Christmas tree (pictures to follow), so we headed over to my uncle's house to borrow an axe and in a very short time had our first tree! It is a cedar, about 7 foot tall!!! I can't wait to get it all decorated! I wasn't planning on pulling out all the decorations since we should be boxing things up now anyway, but I can't go through a Christmas season without some holiday in the house!!!

Speaking of boxing up, here is the latest on our house!! We have a front yard, complete with two oak trees and crepe myrtles! Our fence is up and we have cabinets!!! Still to go is the sod in the backyard, the floors, the toilets, and the counter-tops...and that's it! We don't have a definite close date yet, but I told the builder that our loan expired on the 30th and they told us we'll definitely make that!!! Yay!

There are more new pictures here! We're going by today to see if the tile is done. They were supposed to do it last Wednesday, but as of Thursday it wasn't in yet...so hopefully it got done over the weekend! I'll have more pictures if it is!
