When we got back from church we walked in to find a ball of yarn (I've taken up knitting again) rolled out all around the living room floor. Apparently one of their cats decided to have a little fun.

Speaking of the kitties, there were a few gifts this year that were their favorites. The catnip, the treats, and the laser light thing that they chased everywhere. Even when Jason shut it off they both stared at the wall waiting for it to come back.
Our main Christmas present to each other was a brand new stainless steel gas grill. We decided to break it in Friday night for our dinner, so Jason had to spend about 3 hours putting it together.
For dinner we started with drinks and munchies, then it was on to a hot bacon dressing salad, steak, creamy mashed potato bake, glazed carrots, garlic green beans, and rolls. Dessert was a red velvet cake.

We got our first Christmas tree this weekend. We went up to Stony Creek Farm in Noblesville to ride the hayride and then cut down our own tree. Unfortunately we were about a weekend too late and all of the good trees were gone. We ended up buying a precut tree at a local nursery.
That night we decorated it - and in our opinion it's the perfect tree! (The kitties think so too - they like to drink out of the water in the stand.)

In case you haven't heard yet - Jason and I are homeowners! We bought our house and moved in around the end of July and love it! It's a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, with a loft and another extra storage room upstairs.
One of our first projects was to start working on the yard - the grass is much greener now, thanks to lots of watering and some fertilizer. Now we just need to work on the landscaping.
We have tons of projects lined up for the house. We want to paint pretty much the entire inside, add carpet to the dining room, put in a kitchen island, build a deck, landscape, etc. It's going to keep us busy (and broke - haha!)
We just finished painting the master bathroom, and for our first time I think we did a good job! (We have my mom to thank for most of it though!)
Here are the before and after pictures!
We also just bought a new coffee table for our living room! The green square in the middle of it is just a little plate - my attempt at decorating. :)
Last bit of news, for those that haven't heard yet - Jason got a promotion at work! We're so excited - he's now the F&I (Finance & Insurance) Manager and he loves it.
Time for Project Runway!
