Not so bad for a rookie.I Love you and thank you for an AWESOME gift!!! If anyone knows AJ...then you know that he just loves anything that has to do with Submarines and the US Navy.

Heading over the "High Point" to start off the day.

Tree is done!!!

The Christmas tree is finally done and took a bit longer than usual. The old bows were retired and I made new ones this year. Justin sets the tree up for me and I(the boys also) do the rest. I really really wanted a real one this year but maybe next. Yes, a real tree can be a bit messy... I know. I just love the fresh pine smell and I dont have to worry about it drying out...not here in CO.
Now I'm off to finish my xmas cards!!
