Getting ready for Christmas

Here's what we've been up to the last few weeks...

Debbie found this beautiful piano on Craigslist. We have always wanted to get a piano, especially since Hannah has been taking lessons. We are very fortunate to know someone in the piano business who was willing to transport it for us!

For the first time in our marriage (eight Thanksgivings now) we had Thanksgiving at our home. It was only our little family plus Mom, Matt, and Vicki, so it wasn't all that stressful and it turned out really well. We're so thankful to have a beautiful new home with plenty of room in the kitchen and dining room!

It was Eli's turn to put the star on the tree this year.

I've been looking forward to decorating the house all year. I even bought our own ladder this year instead of borrowing Mom's.
