I gave in.

Andrew has been dying to put up our Christmas tree, really since before Halloween. I said no, of course. I am a firm believer in waiting until after Thanksgiving, even if it's the day after. I finally gave in though and let him pull the tree out. He was so excited that he even put on Christmas carols, but me, being the scrooge that I am, said that the tree was enough, Christmas carols were simply crossing the line. Naturally he resorted to old school rap songs instead. I think it's going to be a new tradition in our house. We got hungry and didn't finish decorating, so we just have a naked tree for now. I'll post a pic whenever we get around to actually decorating it!

We are both obsessed with Christmas, so it's very exciting to spend our first Christmas together. P.S. don't forget it's Izzy's first Christmas, too. And...her birthday is coming up :-) Dec. 1st.

On another note, I simply have the best husband ever. He knew I had a hard day yesterday and had to stay as school late to finish up some lab work. When I came home, he had dinner ready and out on the table, along with a fresh bouquet of roses arranged perfectly in our pretty McCarty pitcher. And he had Izzy in a sweater (so freakin' cute). That was the icing on the cake! I love him.
