Christmas Eve Pictures

These pictures are from our first Christmas Eve in our own house.  Barbie’s mom and my dad were both here for the Christmas holiday, so they took pictures to document the day with us.  It was a lot of fun for everyone.

Our Christmas Tree Is Ready

With a new house, came a new Christmas tree.  With a new tree, comes new lights and decorations.  Once Barbie’s mom got here, she helped finish our tree by making more than 30 glass ornaments for us.  We are so proud of our tree that we had the drapes behind it open the entire time the tree was up so that our entire neighborhood could see it.

Ahh, this is the life...

Earlier today we saw our first snow accumulation in the new house. That meant that we also had to remove that snow from our new driveway for the first time today. Barbie seemed to really like that, while I was working on a strategy for how often that task needed to be repeated. (Can you tell who had the shovel?)

Back to this post title...after the last shoveling of the night I decided that it was time to try out the hot tub. After-all, it has been maintaining a temperature of 102 all the way through the storm where last nights low was in the teens!

I must say that the 10-15 minutes I spent in there were all that I hoped it could be.
