We got our Christmas Tree tonight :)

Hello All,
We took it upon ourselves to go out and choose our Christmas tree tonight. We had fun. But, we're very tired, so we put the lights on it and the tree top and now we are relaxing. We'll do ornaments and string popcorn tomorrow. Maddie had a blast. She liked the lights on the tree. We had to corral the tree because she's VERY interested at this point. I'll have to teach her to try and leave it alone. Plus, Tucker has always enjoyed a bite of Christmas when he thinks no one is looking. So, to us, the Christmas season has begun and I'm liking it. We listened to Kenny and Dolly's Christmas the whole drive home :) Gabe said that if someone would have told him 3 years ago that he'd be driving home with a wife, baby, Christmas tree and listening to Dolly and Kenny's country Christmas album, he'd have said they were "bat shit crazy." I thought that was funny-sorry for the language...

How fun! It looks like you all had a blast. :)
We are getting our tree next Monday and it happens to be at a tree farm right across the road from where we are getting married. Plus it's our first tree living together, so it'll be very special to us. I've almost finished my Christmas shopping (all online!)so I'm excited to decorate and celebrate the holiday and not feel the stress of shopping!

Good for you Laura. Gabe and I have started the shopping, but I mostly get it done in the morning on weekdays and so it isn't all that crazy. Your first tree together is very fun and special. Take pic's and email them. Take care.

I love the pictures - the one with Gabe and Maddie looking at each other is precious! I also love that the tree is in the baby corral:) I've been thinking of just getting a small tree to put on a table so that Maddie won't be in trouble the whole time she is here! I know Auntie Liz won't love that idea but lt me know what you think! Love you all - MOM
