Great Minds Think Alike

We had a great Christmas at my parent's house. It was so nice to be home and just to relax. We ate lots of good food and just enjoyed being together.
This is where my parent's live. I love going there and being out in the country. It's so quiet and pretty and peaceful. Dawson can run around and roam. They have 5 -15 deer that come in their front yard every day at 4 to eat so we enjoyed watching them.
This was our Christmas tree. We exchanged gifts yesterday morning and then had a big lunch.
This was my main present. My mom and dad got me a sofa table. I have been wanting one forever. This one is so much prettier than any I had seen. It came with a beautiful mirror and can be used as an entry way or foyer table but our house doesn't have one so I'm storing the mirror and I'll use the table behind my sofa. I'll picture it once I find every thing I want to put on it and get it fixed up. I love it! Thanks mom and dad!
My mom and I saw these glass beverage dispensers on TV and have wanted one ever since. They make a great way to serve drinks at showers or parties. So Saturday when we got there - my mom gave me a beautiful one. And then she told me she had bought one for herself. Well - I got her one for Christmas. So I'm taking it back and getting her something else. Great minds think alike. I can't wait to use mine for some upcoming baby showers!
We got my dad this picture of Razorback stadium. He was so excited that he had it hung before we even ate lunch! Since we have a new coach now - our love for the hogs has been restored. Otherwise all of the razorback presents he and Scott got would be going up on e-bay. ha!
We came home yesterday afternoon and Scott's parents will be here soon. I got up and went to Wal-Mart at 7 this morning to buy groceries and look for holiday bargains. I got a new tree on sale 50% off that will go in our dining room window next year. I'm already planning the colors I will use! Can't wait for next year's tour! ha ha ha ha!

You're a great gift-giver! Love the glass beverage thing--where did you get them? Funny that you both ordered one.

Ok, I have to know where you got the beverage dispenser!! I host a million showers and ALWAYS am looking for something pretty for drinks. :)

I love your new table-very pretty. Sounds like a fun Christmas and everyone got what they wanted. :)
