So it’s December 1st and we just put up our Christmas tree. This is actually the first year since we’ve been married that I really wanted a Christmas tree. Our first Christmas, Phillip’s sister was living with us and we just had NO room in our 550 square foot apartment with 3 people. Our second Christmas, we did get a Christmas tree. It was 4 foot tall and we put it on a table so our cat wouldn’t bother it. Well, he still did and it drove me CRAZY! So we sold that tree to a friend and didn’t have one for our 3rd Christmas.
So that brings me to this year our fourth Christmas since we got married. We bought a super cute 2 foot tall tree and we went shopping for ornaments today. I LOVE small Christmas trees for 3 reasons: less work, easy to store, and you can put them up high so your pets don’t bother them. Today we went out shopping for ornaments. Hobby Lobby is having a 50% off Christmas decor sale so we went there. We bought 4 sets of small ornaments, some mini garland, a VERY cute tree topper and a gift box to use as the base. We thought we had Christmas lights but when I went to look for them, I realized I had donated them to Goodwill earlier in the year. I was so anxious to decorate the tree that we decided to skip the lights this year. I spent about an hour decorating and I am quite pleased with the results. What do you think? What kind of tree do you have?
