Our first Christmas Tree

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I could not wait to start decorating the house for Christmas on Monday.
I believe that anytime after Thanksgiving is fair game, and if I had been in town I would have started decorating on Friday.
Thankfully Jake didn't have to work on Monday, so we were able to go get our Christmas tree! We had better luck than my parents did. There is a place right down the street from us selling trees, so that's where we decided to get ours from. It took us MAYBE 10 minutes to decide on our perfect tree.

To make things even better there was a random cold front, so it was in the 50s all day!
Before decorations:

Jacob's job was to put the lights on.

And mine was to put the ornaments on.

The finished product.

It kind of looks like a mini version of my parents tree, it must be the ornaments :)

Merry Christmas!!
