It's Christmastime in the Davis house!

Christmas decorating is in full swing around here! We put up our tree this past weekend (Jack loved helping decorate it, you'll notice the lower half of the tree is a bit more festive than the top half, oh the joys of toddlers!). I hung our stockings today, and set up our small tree in the dining room (complete with a star fish on top, since our dining room is decorated in beachy things). We probably could get rid of our small tree, but it was Jeff and I's first Christmas tree. Our apartment was so small, it's all that would fit. I just can't bring myself to part with it yet! But it and our big tree fit in this house perfectly together so it's all good for now. I'm still working on the Christmas centerpiece for our table. Hopefully pinterest will be helping me out with that. We are picking up some outside lights for the house this week sometime, and I cannot wait. I live Christmastime! Mostly because I get to decorate and craft even more (:

How are your Christmas decorations coming along?

Sisters are the best kind of best friends!

My mom found this in my little sister's room this morning (: I just love her! So, it's a little more than 14 days before I'll be home.. But let's not get technical. Chillicothe, (and Avery!) I'll see you soon! I can't wait for Christmas!

"About Me"

When I logged into pinterest today, it asked me to update the "About Me" section of my profile. (What? You have a pinterest accont too? click here & follow me!) I sat there staring at the screen, not knowing where to start. Where do you begin to describe yourself, in one little paragraph in one little section of a webpage? Should I start by saying I'm married, married to a soldier? Should I start with my age? Should I state my name (even though it's in big letters at the top of the page <- I always though that was silly when folks do that.)

And then I think, how could I not know how to describe myself. I mean I'm with myself every single day of every single year of my life. I have to know a little something about how to sum up "Katelyn Davis."

Here's what I wrote, pretty generic and boring:

I'm 21 years old, mama of two handsome young men (Jack -2yrs, Jonah -4mos). I love books, the beach, writing, and attempting to be crafty. A brave, young soldier stole my heart almost 5 years ago. A wedding, college, a baby, a deployment, a second baby, and 4 cross-country moves later... he's still putting up with my geeky, over-worried, sometimes silly, OCD self. My pinterest shows every side of me, probably even the ones I try to hide (:

In my AFTB class I learned that often you have a skewed view of yourself.
Sooooo I'm asking for help?
What are a few words you would use to describe me?
You can post them anonymously if you want, just be honest (:
