Beautiful sunset & 2 new members of our household

There was a beautiful sunset a few nights ago.  Here is the view from my front door.  I loved all the snow and the pretty blue, pink, and purple sky.  The house across the street is my brother and sister-in-laws!

We got a couple of fun presents for Christmas this year (more posts to follow of the rest of Christmas).  We got this fantastic chandelier. The picture is not the best but it gives you an idea.  Its now over our dining room table replacing a super cheap, super old ceiling light with a cracked shade!

I also got a piano for Christmas.  I have been wanting a piano for a while now that we are settled and not planning on moving (ever).  We have been saving up and just about a week or two ago I found this baby on craigslist and it was fantastic.  Such a great piano and a great price.  It is about 15 years old (we think), the lady we bought it from thought it was about 20 years old but the serial number makes us think its a little newer than that.  The size and color are great for our house.  It sounds pretty good but needs to get tuned up and have a couple of sticky keys fixed.  I have to wait a couple months to get it tuned so it can acclimate to my house but that's ok. It has been great having a piano-Belle is thrilled of course and thinks its for her (we are working on her not climbing on it)
