Its begining to look alot like Christmas
Thursday night we started putting up the Christmas tree and much to our surprise the lights we got for it were different colors. One box was a ugly yellow and the other was a pretty white. (the white was what we were going for) After much frustration we went to return the light and get new ones Thanksgiving night. It happened all over again on Friday, so Jared took them all back and got new ones AGAIN. He checked them at the store before he brought them home just so we new it wouldn't happen a third time. The lights were good they were what we wanted. After getting them on the tree, Jared turned on the switch and half of them were YELLOW AGAIN. OMG, I was frustrated so much more now. Friday we went to the PX to see what they had, and nothing. Off to Kmart it was, we finally found clear lights that we had been wanting, and bought 5 boxes of them just to be on the safe side.
Now with the tree lit, we could hang the ornaments. We always get two or three new ornaments a year to help us remember what went on that past year and that are meaningful to us as well. All the ornaments are hung, the tree skirt is in place and the stockings are hung. (all four, ours and the pups that I made) It truly is starting to look like Christmas at the Gabriel house hold. With the tree, stocking, the wreath I made, and a few other decorations in place we are set. I am so excited about Christmas this year. After being with Jared for 3 years we have not spent one Christmas together so this is our first. I can't wait to celebrate!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now there are even gifts under the tree, awh more and more its starting to look allot like Christmas.
