November and December--WHEW!

What a whirlwind these past two months have been....I can't believe we're already at the end of December!!!  I feel as though I've been in over my head, so I'm toying with the idea of a household management binder.  Here are some great sites (thanks to some fellow mamas) that tell you how to put one together (and they have FREE downloads as well!)

If I get my printer working and actually put together this household management binder, I'll keep you updated (I bet you'll be holding your breath in anticipation over the EXCITEMENT this entails!!!).

AHHH....what fun and exciting times come with November and December.  This November, we hosted Thanksgiving.  It was the first time I've ever prepared a meal so big and I *think* it was a success.

Soon after Thanksgiving, we went to the Pepermint Christmas Tree Farm in Culpeper, VA for our PERFECT Christmas Tree.  Here's a little snippet of our adventure:

First, you load up one handsome hubby with two beautiful boys.
Make sure your Four Wheeler is decorated!
Take advantage of the Photo Op!

Find the perfect tree and get hubby to cut it down!
Thumbs up from the kiddos!

Load it onto the Four Wheeler and bring it home!

For those of you who don't know, my Grandparents (Grandma and Granddad Bartlett) own Pepermint Christmas Tree Farm.  Our family has been a major part of the Christmas tree business--getting together July 4th weekend to celebrate my dad and Uncle Brian's birthday by pruning Christmas trees.  :-)  My dad and Uncle Brian were born on the same day (July 3rd), but two years apart.  My grandmother has three boys (two born on the same day) just like me.  When Danny decided to come on Timmy's birthday, my grandmother said, "Tell Jenny to stop copying me!"  :-)
