It's beginning to look alot like...

Well I'd like to say Christmas but, well lets just say that every time we set up our tree Matt asks me, "Is this all the decorations we have? Don't you have anything that goes in the rest of the house?" I just don't feel like spending money on decorations unless they are really on sale, and I always seem to miss the sales. Anyway our Christmas tree looks a lot like Christmas so I guess that will just have to do. We set it up after a looooong day at Church, oh and a long weekend preparing a lesson and a talk for sacrament meeting. Seriously, I'm exhausted, not to mention I'm already having problems sleeping. I know everyone told me this already but I was really hoping they were wrong. Apparently you do start showing a lot sooner with Number 2 than with Number 1. I wake myself up every time I switch sides to sleep on, you know considering I hate sleeping on my back and sleeping on my stomach is just too uncomfortable, (not to mention I don't want to squish the kid!). Speaking of the baby, we are having quite the dilemma, what do we name this little fella? We are fresh out of idea's for boy names. We have gotten a few suggestions and a couple that I like but I'm just not sure. I thought that I'd put the search out here, so we could see what sort of ideas our friends and family have. Seriously everyone, we need help!
Anyway the tree is up, and Christmas cards are ordered, and well the holiday tunes are blaring non stop. (Sigh, I love Christmas) Here are a couple pics from the evening. Enjoy!
"Hey Grunewald! Where are you going to put a tree that big?!" Actually the tree is not that big, our house is too small... Or low? You get the idea...

Jonas helped by eating a candy cane, and pulling off the ornaments we already hung. We left most of the ornaments on the top half of the tree so it looks a little funny but I don't care.

The tree lit up in all its glory! Notice the lack of ornaments near the bottom!

I think this might be my biggest problem, he likes to be under the tree, wouldn't that be nice if that how we got kids? Then we wouldn't get fat and have to go through labor, and it would make gift giving so much easier, they only get presents once a year, for their Birthday and Christmas... Mmmm I think I'm onto something...

You should use the name Preston...it is my favorite boy's name but sadly I can't use it b/c one I keep having girls and two my brother in law already used it! Your tree is really pretty.

I love your tree and that you are already into the Christmas spirit! Sorry, but there will be no Christmas decorations at our house when you come this week, that will have to wait until after Mitchel leaves on his mission. What an awesome and darling present that you have under your tree, I want that present under my tree.

You are cracking me up with the Christmas festive-ness! And I love that you quoted Christmas Vacation - little full, lot of sap! haha

I can't wait for you guys to come! Maybe Jonas can help me set up my tree this weekend. I love that little monkey-face.

Your tree is fabulous! I can't wait to decorate, although this year just doesn't feel like christmas to me yet, even though I am trying. I wish we were closer, its been years since I have seen you girl, but I bet you look amazing pregnant!

Nice job on your tree! At least it is up! I am still trying to decide what color to do ours. I was given the thumbs up to redo ours this year, so hurray for me!
