I can't believe it's already December! We've been in Texas for a month and a half now, but it feels like so much longer. I don't know what I would have said 3 months ago if you told me I would be in Texas before November. It's been a great move though. Thanksgiving was great, although we miss our family. We spent the day at my Aunt Beth's house and played Rock Band until late. We were the last ones to leave - it's an addictive game! TJ played the bass, I sang, Uncle Gary played guitar and Aunt Beth was our drummer. We had a blast. It was a great, relaxing weekend. The Oklahoma Sooners beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday night, which was awesome - although my poor son had to wear his little Cowboy outfit that a friend of mine bought for him (trying to turn Siah against me). It won't work!
Yesterday I started decorating our house for Christmas, and even half done it feels so great. I forgot how much I love Christmas, and Christmas decorations. They're so happy. I think it's the lights. I love twinkle lights. We talked about not getting a tree this year, due to our being in Kentucky for the week of Christmas, but then my aunt found out and gave us her old tree! I didn't realize how much a Christmas tree meant to me until she offered to give us one. I am so excited. I'm going to go get it sometime this week, and it's probably going to take up a quarter of our living room. TJ thinks it might be a bit much, but he's letting me go overboard because he knows how much I love Christmas...and Christmas decorations. :-)
Well, it's time to get some cleaning done - my sister's coming to visit tomorrow!! I'm so excited, and the house has to be perfect for her first visit. After that, it's just too bad. :-)
