We got our tree the day before Thanksgiving if I am recalling correctly. My momma was here and she offered to get us one and I wasn't about to turn that down! I love, love the smell of a real Christmas tree in my home. I love the twinkle of the lights, the merry feeling I get inside every time my eye catches a glance of all the pretty ornaments hanging so gracefully on the branches. Yah, you get the idea:).
So here we are at Lowe's picking out our tree. It didn't look perfect at the lot but, after settling at home it looks gorgeous. So happy with it! It was a really chilly night and I was more interested in getting the tree quickly and hopping back into our heated vehicle as quickly as possible! lol
Thank goodness for strong husband's who do all the hard work of carrying the tree into the house all by themselves...plus then my hands and clothes stay sap free which is always nice. Thanks hubby!
And me and my momma couldn't pass up an opportunity to be cheesy and pose by our tree. I wuv her so much!
And then I remembered that I too am a mom and went and grabbed my child and made her pose for a cheesy by the tree picture. She looks so happy doesn't she. hahaha
And what happens when you give your baby a bath and they escape before being clothed?? Why they go adorn themselves with Christmas beads of course! Isn't she adorable:).
And I really did attempt to let Daisy help me decorate the tree but, one: she really wasn't that interested and two I could barely get the tiny strings around the branches so it was really impossible for her...but, we tried (okay Daisy when you read this in 10 years just know that...I really did try:).
And I like to keep my house tidy so this kind of holiday mess is um...ehem, a challenge for me to live with but, I knew it was temporary so I survived and my mom can vouch for me...I kept my cool:) hahaha And though it is completely unrelated....I must share that I DESPERATELY want curtains in my living room. I want a pair from Pottery Barn and I have yet to find anything similar else where...so naked my windows remain. Sigh. Okay, I feel better now. Moving on....
And after all the hard work and the clean up, this is what you get....much more of this to come:)
