It's so great to be able and spread out our Christmas decorations through the house, and have room to have people over for the holidays! Bryan and I went out to get our Christmas tree with his parents on Saturday...before the humiliating Civil War, and we got everything set up too! Our tree is about 9 feet tall and goes all the way up to the peak of our vaulted ceiling in the living room. It looks great with all the lights and we are loving walking into a house that smells like a forest. Here's a photo of our huge tree before we decorated it. It basically makes Bryan look like a little kid!
Bryan and I were discussing that whoever thought of hauling in a Christmas tree, putting lights on it and presents underneath it was a genius. We love Christmas, especially Bryan, who would play Christmas carols year-round if I let him!
