Elf Dance

Yes, it' true ... finally

You all always want to know about my dear friend Sara. Whenever her name happens to come up, the first question is, "Is she engaged yet?" Well, my friends, Sara IS ENGAGED. And yes, she's marrying a boy from Utah (the kind of person she said she would never even date); I guess it's Steve's wonderful charm that finally got her! So, come the end of April, beginning of May, Brad and I will be in San Jose, California celebrating the beautiful wedding of Sara and Steve Fisher.


Perhaps I should include a picture of Sara and Steve. She's not marrying me after all.


Congratulations Sara and Steve. We couldn't be happier. You two are perfect for each other!

An Anniversary

Today was a day full of reminiscing for me since it has been exactly one year since my wonderful husband completely surprised me on a snowshoeing trip by asking me to marry him. One year ago today I decided to marry the most fantastic man in the world (no offense other ladies). I will never forget that day. Even now I can remember every detail as though it happened just yesterday. I had never experienced such absolute joy. One year ago today I made the best decision of my life.

Christmas in the Andersen Household

Well, I've been waiting for an important letter to arrive in the mail before I made another blog post, but it has yet to arrive. So in the meantime ... we've decorated our little house for Christmas! We absolutely LOVE the Christmas season. It's so joyful and exciting. I wish it was Christmas all the time, but if that was the case it probably wouldn't be so special.

Our front door!

Here were are putting up our little tree. Brad and I both prefer real Christmas trees, but it just didn't seem practical this year, so we got an artificial tree.

Here's our front window (I really need to sew a curtain for it, but for now tinsel will have to do).

Our stockings! We're planning on decorating them; we just haven't gotten to it yet.

The finished product. Looks pretty good for a fake tree, if I do say so myself.

This is an ornament my aunt gave all the girls last year for Christmas. My grandmother and all her sisters had one of these to put on their family tree growing up. So my aunt thought it would be a great tradition for us to start as well.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!!
