I forgot to post these pictures of the B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L dvd cabinet we received from Aunt Martha and Uncle Larry for Christmas. Uncle Larry made this cabinet for us. He's so talented. :) Our DVDs are very happy in their new home. Thanks again Uncle Larry and Aunt Martha!
Top Picture: Aida with her Christmas bagel bone. That was devoured in 5 minutes flat. :)
Next Picture: Me with the stocking that my hubby got me :)

These pictures are from when we first moved in. I forgot to post these first. So we have definitely come a long way from this. The first two pictures are from the living room, and then there is the kitchen and finally we have Nathan being swallowed up by the furniture, cushions and bedding. It was a lot of chaos, but a lot of fun.

We have been here all of three days and have already received a note on our door from one of our neighbors complaining about our music being "way too loud." We can thank Nathan and Byron for that. They were playing Guitar Hero last night and I think they were trying to have their own "live" concert series. It was pretty loud. Hopefully it won't happen again though...we aren't fond of ticking off the neighbors.
Ben and I are pretty excited about our early Christmas present from Mom and Dad...A Christmas Tree!!!!! It is a big 7 1/2 footer, un-lit (the way I like it!...I love putting the lights on the tree myself :) ) and really nice looking artificial tree. It will be nice to have a tree for Christmas especially since I won't be home on Christmas Day:( We are excited. Ben has already opened the box so we can set it up...but I think we will wait until Wednesday so we can have at least some of the furniture and boxes put away :)
So stay tuned for pictures. We are still in the midst of chaos so I am not sure when I will be able to update the blog with pictures...but I will do my best.

Well, that isn't exactly what happened, running with scissors I mean. But the way I did cut my thumb was just as dumb. So I decided to make stew for Ben and I on Saturday for dinner. And despite my mom's advice to use a cutting board when I cut vegetables (or anything), I did not use said cutting board. I was cutting the baby carrots length-wise and even thinking as I cut the first carrot that I should probably use a cutting board. I cut the carrot with the knife coming towards me. And I think that the knife had it in for me, because half way through the carrot it picked up speed and sliced not only the vegetable, but my thumb as well.

Aida peeking thru her donut-shaped toy. That's really how she carries the toy around...

Ben is determined to make a runner out of Aida
Along our walk we could see the back of the government building that Ben had his graduation from the fire academy at.
There are trees in Fairfax!!!
The happy family
Finally we made it back!
