Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! from Santa Jack!

let it snow...

Well I'm currently down in NC, where the forecast for Christmas is 60 and sunny. But apparently, the north got hit by a blizzard? My dad sent me some pictures to show me the damage...

the back balcony @ 1 pm (roughly 12 inches)

the backyard and our 6 ft fence @ 5 pm (roughly 30 inches)

our trash can almost none existent @ 5 pm

Can't wait to head home in 2 days to all that! The boys will be in for quite the surprise!

xmas card sneak peek!

I took pictures of the dogs last night for our Christmas card. I'm not going to post the picture we'll be using, but here is a hysterical clue as to what it may look like :)

The supplies to make my programs/fans we ordered just came in, and we are now meeting with our DJ on Friday as well as the seamstress! Busy busy weekend, but soo excited!!

wedding planning galore!

I know it's been a while since my last post but things have been crazy! My car has broken down twice in one week, and I got a flat tire in the middle of those two breakdowns. It's running fine now so hopefully it'll stay that way for a while, or else I think triple A might cancel our membership! Pat's truck broke down the same time too so we were stranded in NC for a while.

I'm home now and taking advantage of that by doing lots of wedding planning! I have a meeting with a florist tomorrow, a seamstress Friday, and the caterer on Saturday! I'm also waiting to hear back from a DJ about when we can meet. Oh and Sunday two of my bridesmaids, Carly and Emily, went with me to J. Crew in DC to try on their dresses! It went very well and we decided on a color and all the styles! Also, the Save the Dates came in last week, and we all absolutely love them! I can't wait to finalize a guest list so we can send them out!

That's all that's going on with us for now. Pat's down in NC working hard, and I'm in MD planning things, I can't believe how fast things are coming up... it's already down to 241 days (or 34 and a half weeks). I feel like yesterday the countdown was in the 300s! Anyways, I don't have any pictures to post, but I will leave you with these funny pictures of Jack in his squirrel costume on Halloween! I know it's a little late (as we're getting ready for Christmas now...) but since my camera broke back in the summer, these were on my mom's camera and I just got motivated to put them on my computer! Isn't he so funny?! I love the little acorn!
