Judith Makes Everything Better

After working for 14 days straight, and coming home to frozen water pipes, and in an all-around bad mood, something needed to be done and needed to be done fast. We needed something...and that something was Judith:

Judith is the angel that has sat on top of our Christmas tree for the past couple of years. It was an adventure in and of itself to find Judith because I didn't realize how hard it was to find an angel that didn't look either extremely sad or had horrible hair (probably the reason why she was looking extremely sad - no one smiles on bad hair days).

So Judith came out, and with her, there was some of this:
A little of this:
A bunch of these:
Even this for our first year in Baker!
Leave it to Judith to know what to do.

Of course after it was all set up and we were sitting and admiring the twinkling lights, I cried and cried because it feels like this should be at home where our families can share in it....but that's not Judith's fault. First Christmas away from home is harder than I thought it'd be, but I'm glad we lugged up this ridiculously large tree and all our ornaments...it may be hard, but at least it'll look pretty.

    1. What's wrong with Judith?? It suits her.
      She's also been known to throw Starbucks cups at people...oh, Judith.
