Since BC and I have spent the last 6 years in LA we never had a Christmas tree (it didn't make sense to have one in an apartment and we always came home for Christmas anyway) so, we were very excited to go pick out our first tree this year! Monday night we went out in the freezing cold to find our tree and to get all the "stuff" we needed (thanks to my sister for her old ornaments and my brother for the tree stand). Seeing as though we had never decorated a tree before we thought that 2 boxes of lights would be sufficient...nope! The second picture shows our tree on Monday night:) Declan and I went out the next day to get some more lights and we finished "trimming the tree" that night. We still don't have a tree topper (I bought an angel, but we're returning it because it's kind of ugly) so, we'll have to figure something out for the top! Now we just need some presents to go under it!!
