What I've Been Up To

Things have been slow going on the home front here at the Pike House. We are all busy working and planning. I wanted to show you what I have been up to this week :)

My wonderful Husband got me a new, nicer camera. I'm still learning how to use it properly. For some reason a lot of my pictures are blurry. It's a Coolpix L105. Doesn't have the greatest reviews but it's a step up (I think, once I figure out how to not have blurry photos) from the Lumix I have.

We put up our Christmas tree. It's nowhere near completed. I gave Story free reign on placement of fun ornaments. So, they are all clumped in the front of the bottom half :)

I got to put up the special ones. This will be Story's fourth Christmas. I hope to make it to Kohls this week and pick up a new ornament. We also get a family one each year.

Just a few more decorations. Since we don't have a mantle we are using the bookcase to hold our stockings. I don't really like how busy it looks with all the movies showing. I might try and cover them up, just for the season.

Other than Christmas, I have been thinking more on the gallery wall. I would really like to finish it before Christmas. I have a few frames laying around that I can't wait to hang up.

And nothing would be accomplished without coffee. Even though it's out of season (already!!) I'm still enjoying Pumpkin Spice. 

So, just a little look into whats been going on over at our little slice of paradise. How are the Christmas plans coming at your house? Gearing up for family?

p.s. house to-do list coming soon!!!
