Pictured above is our very first tree. Both of us are purists when it comes to Christmas trees, however, given our complete lack of time this holiday season, we opted for a pre-lit no fuss fake tree. Also, since we have very little furniture, our little tree really helps spruce up the room (no pun intended). Now all we need is a quality pine scented candle -- God forbid, we would never get one of those crappy air freshner brand ones. One major bonus of the fake tree is we won't have to vacuum up any of those damn needles. . .Personally, when you vacuum pine needles, it is a very unpleasant smell.
While listening to music from A Charlie Brown Christmas (our absolute all-time favorite), we put up all five of our ornaments -- as you can see above, the J and K ornaments are on full display, which were a thoughtful gift from our friend, Sarah. Also of note are the sweet Tiffany & Co. ornaments that Becky and Paul got us. The next thing we are looking forward to getting are stockings to hang from our mantle :) Oh yes, and a star or an angel for the top of our little tree*
