Oh Christmas Tree!


The fiance and I LOVE Christmas, it's our favorite holiday so we definitely enjoyed decorating our place and the tree. I just love this time of the year, it reminds me of my childhood back in Canada; waiting for my dad to come home from work because he always had a little surprise for me, like a small toy or chocolate, and staring at the streets covered in snow. So it's the one holiday I love going all out for.

This year is particularly special because it's OUR first Christmas living together, our first Christmas in our new place, and because it's MY first real tree. I kid you not, I never had a real tree. My mom always bought the fake trees because they were so much easier to deal with. So the fiance and I went to the tree lot and picked out a nice tall noble fir tree. I originally liked the flocked tree but we decided to do the traditional green this year; we already bought all our ornaments before we got our tree so we were ready to decorate! Jon bought some twinkling lights too. And my goodness, the smell of pine filling up our house is intoxicating! I love it.

Any of y'all done decorating for the holidays?

Some of our ornaments (I love the candy canes!):
The flocked trees are so pretty!
Jon fluffing the tree!
Of course I was having fun haha
Starting to wrap some gifts!

Your tree is beautiful! It's our (my fiance and I) first Christmas living together too and we even put lights on the front porch and everything. It's a very special Christmas this year! I think it's marking the beginning of a very good 2011! Happy Holidays girl!

Aw what a beautiful tree. Yay to Jon and your first Christmas living together, congrats on the engagement again. LOL at the pic of you wrapped up in lights. Real trees are really nice b/c of the smell, I heard that you can crush aspirin and mix it in the water (for the tree) and it helps it last longer??

Your tree looks like something out of a magazine, it's beautiful!

Haha, my dad used to do the same thing when he got home from work, he'd always bring us a treat like chocolate, candy and it was always the highlight of my day (:

Btw, I love your jacket, it is so cute!

I'm so excited too! I haven't had a real tall tree since I was a little kid, my parents either got NO tree at all or a little potted one. My parents are big Scrooges too LOL so now I'm going all out.
