O Christmas Tree
Once again it's the time of year for decorating the tree. This beauty was obtained from a high school fundraiser. It was a little scary committing to a tree without seeing it, but I was assured it would be a good one. I'll let you be the judge.
This is our first Christmas so every little thing becomes symbolic. Our first tree, our first ornament, even the decorating routine... we spent the good part of a saturday morning listening to Christmas tunes and refreshing all the memories of each ornament as we hung them on the tree. We were amazed at how many ornaments we have between the two of us! This is a big tree and we couldn't even fit all our ornaments on it!
Another amazing thing about this Christmas tree is that it is already fully loaded with gifts. That's right, Debra decided to get the gift shopping done early so we had everything wrapped before Thanksgiving. I don't know what I'm going to do this year for Christmas Eve because I normally spend it shopping and wrapping. This is going to be a Christmas to remember!
