the goose is getting fat

In the above title I am not referring to myself, though it could be argued. It is in fact a line from a jolly Christmas tune, if you've never heard it- look it up. All of this is just my clever way of saying Christmas is coming! It has been so fun to have our own house to decorate this year! We loaded up on Christmas lights and decorations last year at the after Christmas sales. Our front room has 100ft ceilings. OK, not really but it felt that tall when we were painting. Anyway, we wanted to put a huge 14ft tree in it this year. No such luck. Instead we got to send Sam all over the country for interviews (more on that later). Luckily I found this skinny little pre-lit mess for 30 bucks at JoAnn's black Friday sale. Behold, the Shumway family Christmas tree:
Sam and Landon also killed some time decorating the front yard. I was obviously at work while Sam sent the 2 year old up a 6ft ladder... alone.

Haha, well, since Landon is two-going-on-19, he was probably perfectly capable of taking care of himself and half the decorations up there!! It looks beautiful!!
