Our First Tree!

This is the first year Nick and I will be spending Christmas together, and we plan on doing it up big time!
Starting with the tree...

Another first! We have never had a tree either! We both wanted a live one, so off we went to cut them down in the forest! (Actually we just went to Home Depot, but play along) 

And it turns out I am a tree snob? While waiting in line with our cheaper Douglass Fir, I had a jealous eye for all the more expensive Nobel Firs. What can I say? They looked so much better! They looked more Christmas-y. I decided we must have it! So out of line we hopped for the better, more expensive tree!

Thanks to the very helpful Home Depot people, we got the tree on quickly and went home! Now, getting the tree set up was a different story. At one point, we think that that the tree attempted to swallow Nick whole..

But we fought back and finally got it up! All that was left was decorations!

And here is the final product! Not too shabby if you ask me! I am kind of in love....mostly because it is our first tree together. This tree will always hold a special place in my heart.

 And of course, there is always Hudson...

i have to admit that i'm a real scrooge about decorating for xmas. mainly because i hate taking it all down. so i just combat that by not doing it all and just laying on my couch.
