So much to be thankful for!

Hard to believe Thanksgiving has gone by and Christmas is almost here. I got a nice vacation last week, half day Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. Wednesday afternoon I had a baking bug and decided to make pumpkin sugar cookies for Thanksgiving dessert...to go with the cinnamon gelato I made yumm. I used the icing decorator I got for my birthday - I love it!

We had a wonderful feast on Thursday...enough for like 20 people...even though there was only 7 of us!

That night we had the pleasure of watching A&M beat UT :) Hunter, Lexie & Spike all had their A&M t-shirts on...I think that's why they won...duh...Oh and Hunter had his t-shirt on for about 24 hours...he just loves being an Aggie...and staying warm!

my sweet Hunter

Spike obviously thrilled with his shirt

 Sunday morning Justin and I put up our outside Christmas lights/decorations. We were out there from 9am to about 3pm and it was so WINDY but we (and by me I mean mostly Justin) got it done!

Christmas decos in the works!

Our cute "little" 6 foot reindeer!

So brave on the peak of the roof!

Our makeshift outside "fenced in" area for the dogs

All done!

So pretty all lit up at night :)
 Tonight we celebrated my mom's birthday! We went to PF Changs for dinner and then came back to our house for presents and dessert. We ended up not having dessert because we had delicious chocolate cake at PF Changs.

Presents & Cupcakes!

It's (almost) Christmas Time!

I know everyone has different opinions of when it's acceptable to start decorating and preparing for Christmas but we couldn't wait any longer. Let's face it...I've had Christmas ringtones for like 2 weeks now...the stores have had Christmas stuff for 2 months...I found the XM holiday station "Holly" yesterday :) so why not decorate?? I love our fall decorations around the house but we were ready to break out our Christmas stuff. Friday night we put up our tree and all of our holiday decorations. Here are some pictures of our house all ready for the holidays!!

My babies!! Can I just say I took this picture with no help from Justin...just treat treats

They love Christmas too!

Finally...Mrs. Trojacek!

So it's been a very busy month since I wrote last!! I'm now Mrs. Trojacek!! (not legally yet) I could write a whole post about the wedding and how perfect the day was but I know that will just get out of hand and I'll go on and on so I'll save that for when I get our pro wedding pics back  :) Here are a few wonderful pictures that my Uncle Jimmy took!

Eeek finally!

Love the pomander balls!

After the wedding we got to spend 5 nights @ Disneyworld on our honeymoon....it was a little stressful Friday night when we were changing our honeymoon from Mexico to Disney at the last minute but everything turned out great! We had so much fun!! It wasn't too crowded so we got to ride our favorite rides over and over again!! Some of our favorite rides: Everest @ Animal Kingdom, Test Track @ Epcot, Thunder Mountain & Space Mountain @ Magic Kingdom, Rockin' Roller Coaster @ Hollywood Studios...notice a trend? Yes we LOVE roller coasters!! But we rode all of our other favorites too!

Waiting to go on EVEREST!
