Our First Tree!

As part of our anniversary celebration, Cameron and I went to go pick out our very first Christmas tree last night! Last year we were still settling in in the new house so stockings and a few decorations were as far as it went.

It literally took us 5 minutes to pick out a tree. I mean, I like a good looking tree, but I am not going to overanalyze it like someone I know (Dad).

It was loaded up in the back of the truck and we stopped for a quick dinner at Mellow Mushroom. Love their Greek salads.

Fast forward to getting the tree up, messing with with 345304852 times to make sure it looks straight from all angles, Cameron making a quick run to CVS for more lights, and hanging plenty of gold and white ornaments on our first tree that were given to us from my Grandma Anna...

Not bad for our first one, huh? Don't you love our homemade tree skirt? Aka a white sheet. It will have to do until I can get to Target.
My sweet guys.
Then, while we were getting ready for bed, Brady gave me a high five and told me "good job on the tree, Megan!"
