Lighting up for Christmas!

The warm weather this weekend gave Jeff and I Saturday to put up Christmas lights. Although we are not here for the actual holiday, we like to appease our neighbors. We were so excited to put up our candy cane lights that we bought at the end of the season last year.

I thought Jeff was going to fall and die a couple times, but luckily we had only damage to his shoes and pants. I have never seen him hold on to anything so tight!
I thought I would help some, but after climbing the ladder once and not being able to get down very well, I decided to stay on the ground and give moral support!

Growing up Jeff always helped his dad put up lights, but I think he got a lot of satisfaction putting them up on our very own home! It looks beautiful, and we can not wait to have the lights on after Thanksgiving!

Good News!

It's nearing the end of the semester and as Jeff seems to be more and more busy, I tend to relax. Somehow, somewhere I learned not to be a procrastinator. This is a good thing, but it also leaves me quite bored when the semester is finishing. All my projects and papers are done while everyone else is rushing around trying to finish things last minute. This semester is especially bad because a couple of weeks ago I got some good news! I got into the nursing program at UofL! I'm super excited to start classes that may actually apply to my future. We are so excited to have the holidays around the corner, we get some good breaks from school, and we get to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families. Life is good!

A Sick Halloween

Halloween 2007 was not anything special. My being sick kept us away from the Maxfields Anuual Party, and left us home to study for upcoming tests:( These are some cute pictures of the neighbors, Oliva and Jace. Jace was of course a power ranger and Olivia decided to be Hannah Montana last minute and I had to three-barrel her hair. They were adorable, along with many other of our trick or treaters. Today, I had a panick attack when Kristi, Olivia's mom, had to go pick her up from school because they thought she had lice. I was worried sick that I would have lice too, since I did do her hair just a couple of days ago. Fortunately, it was a false alarm and there are no lice to be found!
