it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

it's our first Christmas together as a married couple & we decided that we must have a real tree! so, we found a cool little farm around here & cut down our own! i've always loved tiny trees & every year i begged my parents to get the smallest on the lot, but they never did. this year, however, i got to pick a small tree AND take it home! 


this tree is seriously only a few inches taller than us! ahh so cute!

my hunky husband cutting down our first tree!

that's my brute strength in action there, folks!

our finished tree! 


we had so much fun decorating our house for Christmas!

this snowman (from Pier 1) is so wacky & cute! (he drinks too much coffee while we're gone!)

  6. Your decorations are so cute! It's our first Christmas as a married couple, too, and I wish I had more decorations, but I guess we will just collect a little more each year. Love your tree! It's perfect.
