We got our Christmas tree up on Monday night. It's a cute little tree and nice and full. I got all the lights on. (5 strings) and then Noah and I both put on the decorations. We had a lot of fun. It finally started getting me into the Christmas spirit. This might be our last year of getting a "real" tree though. Noah mentioned to me that he didn't care if we had a fake one. I think I might be done with the real ones too. It would be nice to just pull our tree out and get it up and decorated when we want to. We'll see what happens next year.

Each year, Noah picks out a new ornament. This is the one he picked this year.

Festival of Trees

The Christmas season is upon us already. This year has flown by as every year seems to do the older I get. Last Friday after Noah got home from school we went to the Festival of Trees. I try to go every year because I love looking at all the cool trees the have and the money goes to a good cause so it's worth it.

This was a tree decorated for the movie "Up". It was so much cuter in person. These photos are all from my cell phone so they aren't as good.

This tree was made out of tires.

This tree was in memory of Brynn Barton. She was a nurse at the U who was killed in a hit and run accident last summer. This was definitely my favorite tree.
