Baby It's Cold Outside!

Last weekend I went up to Minneapolis with my grandparents. Man was it cold. When I woke up Saturday it was 9 below. There was already a foot of snow. When you ask the people that live there if it is cold they say its not to bad. I just got a kick out of it. I went from 80 to below zero. Anyways, here is one pic I took that was kinda cool.

1st Christmas at the New Place

This year I thought it would be fun to make Matt a stocking. I found two rather cute ones at TJ Maxx and stuffed his with all kinds of wrapped goodies. At first I was hiding them around the house, but he kept on finding them. He made me one too:) I can't wait to open it. Our neighborhood rocks. Almost everyone has lights up. Its really cool to see coming home from work. We put the white tree up again this year. Even found a tree skirt this year.

Family Traditions

So, I was talking with one of my friends about traditions growing up and decided I should make some for my new family.

Here are some that we do:
1. Eat dinner together at the table
2. Get groceries for the week on Sunday
3. Look at Christmas lights w/ James and Kendall
4. Every other year alternate Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families
5. Allcorn Recipe Cookbook - a place to keep recipes we love

My new plan:
1. Everything above
2. Collect spoons wherever we travel
3. Yearly camping trip
4. Pizza and a Movie/TV Friday
5. Saturday Yummy Breakfast

Where'd Nov Go?

So, I think I just missed the month of November. Seriously, I don't know where it went. It feels like I blinked and poof it was over. So, I'm going to make everything I can out of December. Our tree and lights are up and look amazing. I have been listening to Sirius Satellite Radio on my way home. There is this guys that has a talk show on the Cosmo channel. I love it. It makes the drive almost pleasant. I think anything after 45 minutes is just crazy. I have been getting to the office 7-7:30 and leave around 4-4:30, but I feel so guilty leaving then. Our office is moving closer to Matt's which will be great. Last weekend we went to the Frisco's town center to check out the light display. It was really cool. They even had reindeer.

Note: LOL, just noticed my sis and I have the exact same topic for this post. Pretty funny.
