’The war is over’: Last US soldiers leave Iraq

9 Years is a long time....

It was a long war that hopefully has brought good to a corner of the world not near us.
God Speed & God Bless to all of you serving and those who have served.

Let the countdown begin...

Not really... so I've been thinking the wrong thing all this time. Per Wikipedia... "The Twelve Days of Christmas are the festive days beginning Christmas Day (25 December). This period is also known as Christmastide and Twelvetide. The Twelfth Night of Christmas is always on the evening of 5 January, but the Twelfth Day can either precede or follow the Twelfth Night according to which Christian tradition is followed.[1] Twelfth Night is followed by the Feast of the Epiphany on 6 January. In some traditions, the first day of Epiphany (6 January) and the twelfth day of Christmas overlap."  Hmmmmm oops. You can learm more ....

Craft Night

Jasen switched out one of our living room tables with a new piece from his mom to use as a nightstand in the bedroom. However, it was about 5 inches too tall. So he decided to cut off the bottom of the legs to make it level. Well, I didn't want those leftover pieces to go to waste..... my craftiness set in.... and an hour later.....
Well... I was trying for snowmen but the 4 sides messed me up... so instead we have to cute penguins, Santa and a Christmas Tree!

My best at doing a side by side comparison. I say 7 out of 10.

Winter Wonderland

An early Winter mini-snowfall came last night... 50 degrees crashed to mid 20's by late night. Ice and snow. 2 inches of coating. Darkness into a beautiful sunny day!!!

All Done Decorating

If my camera was able to capture the exterior of the house with better flash... or not... the quality of these photos would allow you to feel like you were right here..... now we just need some light fluffy snow to make it all come together. I said "SOME", not 19 inches!

Oh Christmas Tree

This year we traveled to Woodbury to start a new tradition of finding a Christmas Tree with our friends Marc, Becca, Chris, Rachel and their kids, Madison, Syd and Lilah. Boy was it a good time each trying to find a fitting tree for the other. Well, amazingly enough we did. All sizes.
Chris, Marc, Jasen
Finally making it back home, we started to decorate the tree. Blue and white lights this year. This camera doesn't do it justice! Great tree this year.
