It's the holiday season

December 2nd... Where did November go?! This fall sure seemed to fly by, but I am a big fan of Christmas and December means it's finally here :) I can't skip over Thanksgiving though. We had a great Thanksgiving with family and were able to see a few friends in our brief trips back home. We have so much to be thankful for and it was a great time to remind ourselves of all we have.

My mom and dad came up a few weekends ago and brought my mom's Christmas tree, which we are so thankful for! There are memories with that tree and it also meant we didn't have to buy one this year. We put it up and got it all decorated and we love it. Too bad it can't be a permanent fixture in our living room, we're getting used to it! We also put up our Christmas decorations we have from our parents and put up our special ornaments. It was fun to share this with Nick for the first time. Below is our tree.
Last time I posted, I was still looking for a job. In the middle of October, I got a temp job doing data entry. It is helping provide for us, gets me out of the apartment, and something to do. I don't think I was made to do data entry, but I'm catching on quick and am thankful to have the job I do. I'm still looking on the side for another job, as I am not sure when this one will be ending.

Here are some photos from the past few months for your enjoyment...
Here's a photo I took a few months ago of the beautiful buildings in downtown Minneapolis.

Here's a beautiful lake not far from where we live. The fall colors were great.

This guy is one of our pet snails. We have 2 snails and 6 fish. The snails are so entertaining! This is what they look like when they eat- that's his open mouth. Our aquarium provides us with entertainment and we enjoy watching them.

Until next time, happy December!
