Merry Christmas from “the boys”!

For the family Christmas card this year, we decided to put holiday pictures of our new friends!  I will have to put up another post with more pictures of these guys – they are so stinkin’ adorable.

But for now, Merry Christmas from our furry (and prickly) family!!


– Chance and Dexter

Decking the halls.

Not a whole lot makes me happier than Christmas decorations (especially lights). Something about them just makes me all cozy. I think thats one of the reasons I love the holiday season. As soon as I got back to Erie after Thanksgiving, I started decking out the apartment. The thing I love most about my decorations is that most of them are from my family. Whether it was a hand-me-down from my mom (who probably ran out of room in the house because she has quite a few decorations…), or a nativity set that was my grandma’s, each bit of it has a story. It is comforting, especially these last few weeks of the semester when it seems like going home is forever away.
