Oh, Christmas tree...

I wish Christmas tree pictures didn't come out looking so dark. Of course, I'm sure there's a way to capture it in all of it's glory, but I do not have those photographing skills. Anyway, Jon and I finally were able to pick out our tree and decorate it last night! I love how merry the tree makes our living room in December. Everything just feels more warm in the soft glow of Christmas tree lights. Now we just need to get some gifts underneath it. I have bought exactly one gift so far so I really need to kick it into gear in the next week so my loved ones have some special things to open on Christmas Day!

Our tree with the flash...
Have you put up your Christmas tree yet? Have you started your Christmas shopping?


  1. Beautiful!! Our tree is half up. We've decorated it except for the ornaments, haha. It looks kind of sad at the moment. I've started my Christmas shopping, and I'd say I'm about half done.

  2. Yours is really pretty! Ours is up and decorated, only because we had our Christmas party last weekend :) Our Christmas shopping is so-so. I do things irregularly, so I need to revisit the list and see what I still need.

  3. Looks good :D We put our tree up a couple of weeks ago but we still haven't gotten around to putting the angel on. (We haven't gotten around to putting the angel on in our 4 Christmases together, ha ha!) We just have one more person to buy for and we're all done :D
