Eric has been using our Christmas break to get a ton of stuff done around the house. He's been working in the basement nonstop, well, except for trips to home depot. The basement got ignored during our crazy fall, but we're hoping to give it some attention and finish it up this spring. We're really close to drywall, which is the part I am good at helping with, so I am very excited.
We also bought this star during our post-Christmas shopping. It was 60% off because it was a "Christmas" decoration. Nice. I've always wanted a star on my house. Now I have one.
