So….guess who got an early Christmas present courtesy of Black Friday deals and a wonderful husband??!
He assures me this is a present for both of us so I don’t need to up my gift-giving ante, and he also assures me he will learn how to use it and teach me…but let’s be honest, I’m sure I’ll be calling my long-suffering big sister to teach me the basics :)
We’ve gotten even more into the Christmas spirit with our first ever Christmas tree! The kids were thrilled, and actually decorated a good 75% of the tree without me having to move more than a couple ornaments – natural senses of balance, I tell ya.
Now if I could just get that spindle painting finished we could complete the full-house decor I envision :) I know, remember when I started those spindles? Yup, it’s been a good year. My new goal is to have it done before my parents arrive for Christmas…and failing that, at least pleeeease please don’t let me leave it till the new year.

Yay for the new camera + the awesome tree – we’re getting our tree this weekend! =) Sadly, I do not think my hubby is surprising me with a new camera, though. ;-P

Haha..I love how you mentioned gift giving ante.. my hubby and I get in that trap.
You will have lots of fun with your new camera.
P.s I will email my birth story.
YES, please do!
Maybe you can sign up your Dad for spindle painting if they are done yet when we arrive :) (Don’t tell him I suggested it ;)
Haha, I’m worried if I start saving jobs for him he won’t have any free time when he arrives :)
