Is in the bag for us here in Ankeny, Iowa. The kids had such a wonderful weekend full of family fun, CANDY, dressing up and even putting our Christmas tree up! :-) I know it seems weird that it is October 30th and our tree is up and house is decorated, but we really just wanted this done before surgery so once the craziness is over we could just enjoy the holiday season. What's funny is, it really is beautiful in our house and it makes me want to put it up nice and early every year! (Although I'm not sure Nick would allow that).
Here are some fun pictures of what our house looks like these days! (NOTE: We do have 2 trees. The one on the left is the Hawkeye tree and the one on the right is the Cyclone tree. A.K.A. Boys tree and girls tree.)
