Jessica’s Christmas Tree 2

Jessica’s Christmas Tree

Well Jessica is huge into getting a real christmas tree and has definitely let me know that when we have our own place we are not having any of that fake christmas tree stuff in our place.  Well my sister also knows Jessica’s passion on christmas trees and called me up to show me a mini tree I could get for her for christmas.  That would be perfect except I already got Jessica’s presents and went over budget as it was.  So I told my big sis that I wasn’t able to get it for her because of all that. ...

So, in the end, we ended up having this awesome celebration with Tanya, Wilson, Mia, Ally, Emily, Shea, Anthony, Simon, Grant, and myself. The men decided that they wanted to eat steak, the females had chicken, and then everyone else brought different kinds of sides, and the rest of the time we played games, ate, talked, and cooed over Emi-chan!

Things that I think are great!

There are a lot of different things that I like, but lately with Christmas coming closer and closer, I just keep seeing beautiful Christmas type decorations!

Here you can see some beautiful vases being used for ornaments. Now I tend to...
