Mindy is 24

I just have to say, as I was reading Emily's blog about Mindy, and then Marisa's blog about Mindy, I felt jealous. Why, you may ask? Well, it's because I felt like just because I didn't do a post about Mindy's birthday doesn't mean I don't love her. It doesn't mean I don't think she is the funniest person I've ever met, or one of the funnest people to hang out with, or that I can't wait to see her this weekend, or that I didn't think about her all day on her birthday hoping she was having a great day. So, us Carter's just want to say, Happy Birthday Mindy. We love you.

PS Did you see our scores on Mel's blog about Mindy? That says something.

Elf Yourself

The other day Aaron's mom, Dee, sent us an email and it had the funniest Christmas greeting ever! We laughed so hard, and we just couldn't resist trying it out ourselves. Copy and paste this link (give it a minute to load):

Isn't that SO funny? We definitely give credit to Dee for finding this holiday favorite. Merry Christmas!

'Tis the Season

On Friday night Aaron and I decided it was time to decorate our apartment for the holidays so we went to Dave's Christmas tree lot and chose a tree. It was such a fun experience for us to get a tree together for the first time. Last year we decided to stick with a small, fake tree and knew that this year that would just not be acceptable. We had the funnest time decorating it and our apartment.

We felt like something was missing, so we went back to Target and got beads, more ornaments, and a blanket to go underneath. This is the finished product.

We put our little fake tree from last year in our room

Some Christmas decor

One thing I love is the candles we have burning from Bath and Body Works. When we were at the Carter's house they had these candles and we fell in love with them. I highly recommend the holiday scent and the Christmas tree scent.
I just love the Christmas season!
