Tree Time

On Friday I was feeling in the Christmas spirit so Cole and I decorated our tree. Let me start by saying that our tree is kind of sad this year which is a good representation of my feelings this holiday season. Just kind of sad.

The past couple of years we have gotten a nice, big, beautiful live tree, but I knew I couldn't tackle that on my own. So, I went to Ace and bought a 6 ft. Gatlinburg tree. It turned out pretty cute and I can use it in another room in the years to come.

I cranked up K-Love and Cole and I got to work. He had so much fun helping me. I am pretty anal about these sorts of things, but this year, with this little tree, I just didn't care as much. I let him hang ornaments where he pleased and we just had fun with it.

The finished product. Not sure why it is leaning to the right, but I can't get it to stand up straight so I gave up. I think it gives it character. :-)

The stockings were hung...

After our hard work we had some pizza and a picnic in the living room.

Christmas is such a special time of year. My theme word this year is JOY. More to come on that later, but you will find this word throughout my house in my decorations.

Merry CHRISTmas!!
