We've been busy preparing for the holidays. We even got a tree this year, which I have refused in the past (as I am adamantly against holiday decorations of any sort). However, something about owning a house made having a tree seem palatable.
In the craziness between the two holidays, we've managed to learn to make souffles, brush up on Spanish grammar, host a holiday party, guest host another holiday party, attend a wedding, make candy with family, shoot our first semi-professional family portrait session, finish a capstone paper to be published in a scholarly journal (Alex), provide background music at a fancy Christmas party (me), and still manage to finish our Christmas shopping (albeit at 1:00 am last night). Now we just have to pack for our annual trip to Minnesota!
Oh, and we decorated the tree too...

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season! More to come :)

Love the photos of the tree!! I need to take a few good ones of ours... perhaps tomorrow. So sad we won't be able to see you on this trip!
