Christmas Traditions

One of my favorite things about being home for Christmas is the annual alumni hockey game. It's so fun to see all the "old" guys back in their uniforms and having fun on the rink. Here's a few shots after the game tonight.

I kid, I kid!

You caught me. The house pictured in the previous post isn't really ours! That's the sight we see through our back window. We call her "Betty Lou Who". (And no, Jill, it's not the "girlie" neighbors) The decorations are crazy on that house - the picture doesn't do it justice at all (I snuck out there in the dark last night and had to hurry so no one saw me). Every year it seems there's a little something more than the year before. A couple years ago I was taking a walk through the neighborhood at night and literally from about a block away could hear the hum of electricity.

Anyways.......I did do some decorating myself so I will share those pictures with you, although it's not nearly as impressive as our neighbors!


Christmas Lights!

I know it's been quite a while since I've posted anything new, but I've actually been quite busy getting ready for the Christmas season. I've finally finished all my decorating for the year and thought I'd show off the final product.

Now I'm off to bake cookies for our Christmas program at church tomorrow night all while listening to my new Elvis Christmas CD (and of course the hockey game will be on in the background - Go Gophers)! I LOVE this time of year :)
