We finally got our Christmas tree yesterday. We just love it. It was the first one we saw, and it was just too perfect to pass up. Analise loved sharing the back seat with the tree as we brought it home.
I love playing my 'Ultimate Lounge Christmas CD' while we decorate the tree. Markus laughs at me for the time I take to put the lights on the tree. I got that from my mom...gotta have a lot of lights, and they have to be in by the trunk and evenly dispersed, not just one strand wrapped around the outside! I love homemade ornaments...especially ones with deep meaning.
I love Christmas! Analise was so excited to see the tree all lit up this morning. This is going to be a fun time for her and with her. It is also exciting to sit back and relax on the couch, look at the tree and revel in the gift of life that we have been given as we remember and reflect WHO it is that we are celebrating at this time of the year!
