This is our first Christmas as a married couple, and our first compromise in tradition was the tree...real or fake? I have never had a fake tree, and Nicky has never had a real tree. We decided on artificial, because it makes the most sense for apartment living. We braved the crowds of shoppers on Black Friday to purchase our first Christmas tree! Here she is in all her 6.5 ft, pre-lit glory!
|Nicky believes tree toppers should lean. I think it reminds him of his favorite Christmas movie - The Grinch|
|Beautiful collection of ornaments|
|A little fuzzy, but very exciting!|
|Our handmade stockings! (A wedding gift)|
|I love holiday place mats!|
These are a few of my favorite things about Christmas:
1. Hot chocolate
2. Christmas movies (the television pretty much stays on Hallmark)
3. Christmas decor
4. Christmas musicals at local churches
5. Secret Santa in the office place
6. Wrapping presents
8. Time with family
9. The constant mention of Christ
10. CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!
