Christmas 2005

It just hit me that I have never posted pictures of our first Christmas as a married couple. We had the biggest live tree that we (I) could find and we hosted both families at our house for Christmas morning breakfast. It was wonderful! And it was a white Christmas:)

My tree, it was a gorgeous tree, a huge tree, and my favorite tree. I'm sorry that I didn't have any before pictures of it. Before the accident that is. You see my tree was so big and huge and heavy that after all of the decorations were hung and it was all lit up and gorgeous, it had a huge accident. It fell. Just fell right over in the floor. It broke my heart along with many ornaments. Thankfully it only broke one really special ornament and that was the one we got on our honeymoon in Antiqua. We get an ornament on every trip that we go on:) Anyway, we ended up having to wire the tree to the wall. It was so sad looking after that, it just did not look as beautiful as it first did.

See how sideways it looks. I kept thinking all season that it was gonna fall again!

The garland on the stairway leading up to my grandmothers quilt.

Look at all of those presents!

This is Emma, all dressed up in her jewelry and her new pink cowgirl boots!
Don't know what the disgusted look was all about, cause trust me it was a good gift it was pink jewelry!

Look at how young they all look.

I just love Christmas time! I can't wait to start decorating!
I just love the wreaths on the outside windows and the snow all around. Looks like it should be on a Christmas card! I certainly won't have this in Atlanta.

Fall Decorating

These are just a few pictures of some of the decorating that I've done for fall. I love fall and all of the colors and the decorating and my favorite of all is pumpkin pie! But I can't wait to start decorating for Christmas! I'm thinking I may even start some of it this week:) Especially since my lovely Mr F surprised me with a new 7 1/2 ft prelit tree! I typically have a tree in every room of the house. Of course all but one tree is artificial, you have to have at least one real one! But sadly last year was my last year for a real tree:( Mr F made me promise that I wouldn't do it anymore. He just doesn't get it! (but I'm sure that I'll make him forget that promise, say in a few years:) )
Enjoy the few pictures!

Back to Work

I've been so busy lately, but not with anything interesting enough to post about. I've had a few trips to VA. And I had one fabulous weekend with one of my best friends! April, one of my great friends came here to Atlanta, she was my first house guest! We had a great weekend of girl time, shopping, eating, sewing, and a visit to World of Coke.
But then this week my time of leisure ended:( I started my new job. I'm so thankful to have a new job and to be back to trying to save lives and of course making some money! But it's been hard to go from waking up when ever I want to, to having to leave my house by 6 am to make it through all the traffic and be there by 8 am and sit in class all day! I feel like I'm in nursing school all over again! It's been excruciating! I can't wait to be in the ICU next week!
But the saddest part of all of this for me is that I've been here working and Mr F has been back in VA this week working and will be there next week as well. I wish that I could be there with my family.
Maybe I'll be able to get some sewing done and some pictures posted once orientation is over with. Hope you are all doing well!
