Justin's 30th Birthday Week!

Justin turned the BIG 3-0 on Tuesday Dec 14th! I had so much planned for him! The night before I gave him the first surprise, Wizards-Lakers tickets 10 rows from the court! A co-worker friend of mine's husband's boss had them and wasn't going to be able to go! So, I gladly took them off his hands for a fun birthday date night with my hubby! The plan was to go to eat at Corduroy, a neat restaurant we've been wanting to try and then head to the game! At about 4:00 pm on his birthday, I began feeling sick. I ran home to lay down for a bit and hopefully shake it off for the fun night ahead. I made the mistake of checking facebook and seeing that 10 people that had been at the church party I went to on Sunday night had food poisening/stomach bug. Welp, I did too! Justin called his friend Travis last minute and they were able to enjoy the game. Needless to say I was out of commission for about 2 days!
All along, I had also been planning a surprise birthday party for him. It went AMAZINGLY well! He had no idea! I had about 25 or so of his best friends waiting for him and he was very surprised! My brother and his girlfriend even came into town for it! My good friend Holly took a lot of pictures (since crazy me forgot the camera) and I've got to get them from her to post on here! I promise they will come!

We capped off the birthday week with a ginge
rbread house making party at our friends' Ross and Catlin's. It was so much fun and our house turned out pretty well!

We had ANOTHER big event during Justin's birthday week! We had put a deposit down on an English Cream Golden Retriever puppy and she was born on Thursday December 16th! We aren't sure which one will be ours, but she will be one of these cuties (maybe, this is a picture of 4 of the 6 puppies from the litter!)

Tis the Season!

Here we are tonight at Ford's Theater after seeing "A Christmas Carol". It was wonderful and we got to see our good friends Matthew and Ingrid! What a great Christmas Surprise!
These are backwards, but here's the man of the house putting the star on the tree!


We walked down to the tree lot about 6-7 blocks away with our "city" shopping cart and pushed it all the way back to our house the true "cityfolk" way! :)

Merry Christmas!

End of the Year Resolution

Hello Blog Friends! I've decided to make an "End of the Year Resolution" to post on our blog regularly! I stopped around April, which is when I started my new job! I absolutely love it, but its also kept me MUCH more busy! I'm going to make an effort to keep up with it from now on and let everyone know whats going on in the Waters lives! :)

Tonight we are going to see A Christmas Carol at Ford's Theater! We are so excited! We've got a busy December going on right now but I'm going to keep up with this and post some pictures! Tonight I'll post some of our house decorated for Christmas and us decorating the tree!
