It's Beginning to LOOK a Lot Like Christmas!!

I was debating whether or not to get a Christmas tree this year... I love getting Christmas trees, but I wasn't sure if I had the energy to get one up and decorated. Since my mom and sister are coming to town, I thought the place really did need one.

So Eric and I ventured out on Saturday to the tree lots and returned with nothing. The tree lots were expensive and it was cold that day, so no tree. Then on Sunday afternoon, Eric surprised me with this monster! I was thinking a simple 4-6 ft tree (which is what I had a stand for) but I got an enormous tree instead!! The biggest tree ever. And we had to search for a new tree stand at 7pm last Sunday because the one I had was too small!!
So far I have gotten some lights on it, but it still needs ornaments. Hopefully my mom will help me when she gets here TOMORROW! The tree makes the house fell so festive. If only I could figure out what to do with the furniture...

And since the last post was just about Sadie, here are some cute Maggie pics. She loves this blue bed. There is one spot in particular that is almost worn through because she digs at it all the time. I have no idea why... Eric thinks it is because she pooped on it her first night in Colorado!
This morning, I was in my office working and heard Maggie grunting around. Well, the smart little dog moved her bed across the living room and plopped it down right in the line of the sun from the dining room window. She loves to lay in the sunny spots, but who knew she was smart enough to bring her bed over there too!
One week until Christmas, and I would guess I am about 15% done with my shopping. Thank goodness for a "mandatory" 2 week work shut down. I can get some last minute power shopping in!
