Tis the season....

Our first Christmas is a very exciting time! I have been wanting a Christmas tree for a few weeks now and last night Asa came home from work we ate dinner and we decided to head out on our great adventure! WE drove down to my grandparents house and up on their hill, in the dark, we found out tree! It was perfect out... the stars were shining and it wasn't cold at all! Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa for the tree! Here are the pictures of our amazing night! We

WE kind of forgot a saw... somehow! So Asa had an old dull hatchet and a blade that you put IN a saw that he ended up using! It was pretty amazing how fast he chopped it down!

Putting the tree on top of the car This is the amazing tree skirt that my Grandma made for me!

The interesting thing about this tree is that it was actually two trees grown into one! I thought it was quite fitting for our first year together <3

This pic is for you grandma!!! Thanks again Grandma and Grandpa for EVERYTHING!!!

I was just thinking tonight how good old friends are always the best... <3 and then I got thinking about my two childhood buddies who were always there for me... and how on my special day they were there for me... opening the doors and I walked down the isle to meet my husband...

Thanks guys for helping me with every whim and wish! You were my right hand men!

So now the deer is ofically all cut up and in the freezer. I am so happy to have it over with! It took three nights to get it completely cut up. We ended up with 18 bags of steaks and a bucket of meet that I still have to can. (Mom's going to help me with that process)

I've started knitting! My boss is an amazing knitter and so I've got a private teacher :D we're starting with a simple hat.

I took some pictures of it because Mom's in Florida with Grandma and they want to see it! I have really enjoyed it a lot. It's pretty relaxing and it's actually fun to be making something other than dishcloths!

Today Emily comes home and my Aunt Sue also arrives in town. They're going to be coming over for dinner tonight and so we should have a nice houseful. I'm hoping we can break out some games... They like dutch blitz so maybe we'll play some of that . I haven't seen them since the wedding and even then I wasn't really able to spend much time with them!

The other night I edited one of my wedding picture... Photo taken by Laura Marks

Weekend joys

Well Asa and I have been married for one entire month! :) Time really does go by quickly! I made a nice pasta dinner and we got to eat at our bar counter. I would have taken pictures but my camera took a trip to Corning with Emily.

This weekend we had a nice gather... I love having my house full of people that I love! We had a Mexican type dinner it was delicious. The girls got here and helped me get everything ready. I made everyone latte's. I should have taken a picture of the eight steaming cups of deliciousness!

Me waiting for the espresso!
