The Christmas Season has Begun!

I'm so excited that is December 1st! This to me truly marks the beginning of the Christmas season (in complete opposition to retailers who believe this starts in October.)

Tonight, Dashing and I are going to go get my FIRST real Christmas tree. I grew up with artificial trees - and I'm perfectly ok with a full, straight, non-shedding tree. Dashing, however, is not. So, off we'll go to get one of these....

I can't wait for us to decorate it. I'm inspired by the trees at our local Fry's grocery store....Aren't they beautiful!

If you have any tips or tricks regarding real trees.....I'd love to hear them!

This will be so much fun for you two! Those trees are beautiful and I know you will decorate just as wonderfully, if not better than the associates at Fry's. I think the "trick" you'll need to figure out is how to keep Sophie from swatting at the tree ;) ha! Have a fun evening. XO

Wow that tree IS beautiful! My parents stopped getting a real tree because it was too hard to take care of :( I miss the smell of wintergreen in our house!

We're getting our first real tree today! We are going to anchor it to the wall with fishing line because A)it's going to be sorta tall and B) we KNOW our cats will try to climb it. :)
