It's that wonderful time of year

I thought it was time to put up the pictures I promised of our "little white house". There's only a few pictures because, well, this is about our whole house. The only thing I didn't photograph is our bathroom, laundry room, and pantry (which is all is one pretty much) but here is the rest of the house!
Kitchen/Dining Area


Living Room


Our Christmas stockings and Nutcrackers. (Cody may be a little bitter about how much the stockings cost, but they are CUTE!)

Take little notice of the makeshift ribbon and tree skirt. Haha

Me "fluffing" our tree. Finally we got the right tree, 6 stores later and purchasing and returning 2 other trees.

Cody hanging our lights

The finished result. They look great! (I wish the picture turned out better)

Take Your Grandma to Wal-Mart Day

Excuse me.

I don't know if you know this, but today was take your grandma to Wal-Mart day.

I wish someone would have informed me of this before I did my monthly grocery shopping today so I could have taken my grandma.

Everywhere I turned there were little old ladies. In electric wheelchairs, in non-motorized wheelchairs, pushing shopping carts... EVERYWHERE.

Most of them were with their daughters or their grandaughters or grandsons. It seemed like most of the family members were in a hurry, rushing here and there to get grandma's molasses and miralax.

The grandmas were so cute, trying to remember what exactly they had come to the store to get. Glad to get out of their houses, to have something to occupy their minds. Glad to spend time with their family most of all.

You know how most people get all giddy inside when they see new born babies? Well that's the feeling I get when I see grandmas.

Please someone tell me next time it's take your grandma to Wal-Mart day.
