yesterday we found our perfect family tree. huge and blue and a little bit wild.  now it is living in our house, (and hopefully won't fall over the day after christmas and crush everything like last year.)

tonight we decorate!

happy december! 
this month is already a good one.
i woke up to a dusting of snow,
 my sister and friend are flying in on saturday,
 my cousin is expecting her little baby anyday now,
and my collection of trees has grown to 4... 2 still to be put up.

the jensen yearly ornament this year is.. a burger!  we really like going out for a good burger.
