For the first year we have decorated the house for the holidays. After years of living in tiny apartments and traveling for the holidays, it was just never worth it to decorate. This year we were ready to go. We are keeping it simple so we don’t go into glitter shock, but it is nice to have lights on the house and a little tree.
Since this is our first tree in the house with with the cat, we opted to get a small, potted tree that we plan to plant in the backyard after the holiday. So, no trees were harmed during the making of our Christmas decorations and we will have a tree in the backyard that we can watch grow through the years! We have been given ornaments every year from my mom and some of our friends, so it was great to finally put them on OUR tree! A couple years ago Aaron’s mom gave each of us a stocking with our name on it. We usually bring them with us to my parents’ house each year. But this year we got to hang them above out fireplace. Woohoo!
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
