Christmas Decorations

I think I mentioned, but this year, we decorated the OUTside of our house as part of our Christmas decorations! Honestly, it made me feel old, like a real grown-up somehow. But I loved it and was appreciative that my husband was willing to borrow a ladder, climb on the roof, spend a few hours on a Saturday in the 30 degree weather outside! To show some appreciation, I whipped him up some homemade hot chocolate that I'll post later....I didn't get any shots of him on the roof, because I was too busy holding my breath and instructing him to be cautious. ALSO, that is where my big debut as helper came in and my arms were too busy getting sore (after 5 min) to hold a camera...pathetic, I know. The picture below was what I was doing when my arms got sore....funny, he didn't complain about muscle aches the next day, despite that he'd done 90% of the house...hmm...




Aww, he's so happy! and cute. and productive!



TA-DA! Good job hunny!
