Now to the RANDOM pics...  

Me and TB decorating her Christmas Tree

Sweet baby was not wanting to partake in pictures

I was walking into my kitchen and this stopped me dead in my tracks.  Either T to TB one decided to put their boots together.  I thought it was so sweet :)

TB's Tree fully decorated!

Our tree :)

I love our tree and I LOVE my tree but I want a BIGGER tree!

TB's bathroom tree.  It looks naked but it has ornaments.  You just can't see them because they are hot pink, light pink and purple.  You might see the light pink and purple if you look close.

Our kitchen tree.  Matches my curtains :)

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend and week!!!  Talk to you again next week :)

Sorry I completely skipped Week 14!  We have been beyond busy at Hotel Payne and honestly I can not even remember what we were so busy doing.  Sad, I know.  I will have more pictures of TB and The Hubs soon... Whenever I have time :)
