The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

On Saturday, we went to get our very first real Christmas tree.  When we lived in apartments, we just had a little fake tree.  Last year, we didn't bother getting a tree since we were going to be travelling.  I am SO EXCITED to have a real tree this year.  Our house smells like magic.

We went out to dinner and then broke out the Christmas decorations!  I love (love love love) Christmastime.  It is so fun to get the ornaments out and remember where each of them came from, whether they were gifts, or souvenirs from a vacation, or we have no idea where they came from, I just love it!

Mostly finished - we need to buy a topper and a tree skirt
I also Christmas-ized the table in our living room.  Isn't that baby poinsettia the cutest!?

    1. You know, they looked way more pink at the store, but they are very purple in pictures.
