O Christmas Tree!

For the past 3 years, we've gotten our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving Day at Food Lion.  Yep, Food Lion. No trip to a Christmas tree farm for us, just a grocery store.  It works out quite well, and it's done for convenience.  We'll experience the real deal one day, but the Food Lion works out for now.

We brought the tree home Thanksgiving night.  It always makes me so excited!

This tree was the biggest we've ever had...almost 10 feet!  We weren't really sure if it would fit in the house, but it did!

We decorated when we got home from Georgia Sunday night after Thanksgiving.  We always have some sort of Christmas movie playing while we do it, which adds to the fun!
 Here's the tree all decorated and the Christmas village all lit up!

Caleb and I both have lots of ornaments that we've collected over the years, and these are my favorites!

I went by Katie until I was 4 and became so mature, HA!  I love that we have such similar ornaments documenting the year of our births.

I love smelling our Christmas tree as I walk down the stairs each morning.  It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
