We went and got our Christmas tree yesterday and it was so much fun. I love the experience of going to the tree farm, walking around and finding the perfect tree. We always go to Alan Acres and they are so nice there! After we found our tree, they gave us hot cocoa and candy canes. It is so much fun and this year was even way more fun because it was Judah's first time going to get a Christmas tree!
As you can see, Judah really liked walking around with us and looking at the trees.
My husband starts working 2 jobs today and he won't have a day off work until Christmas Eve so, it was really special for us to have this family time together.
We aren't one of those families who have more than one Christmas Tree or really fancy decorations. I really like having a real tree though, I don't think we will ever have a fake one. It would just seem so strange to me. I really like getting new ornaments and Christmas decorations though so, I think this year after Christmas, I'll go see what I can find on clearance.
I really like how this family picture of us turned out!
You might notice that our tree is only decorated from the middle up. With a cruiser/crawler around, I figured this would be the best choice. Of course, it would look better if the whole thing was decorated but, that's just the price you pay when you have a little one, I suppose!
Tonight after I finished nursing Judah before putting him to bed, we stood in front of the tree and I rocked him. It was so amazing to be standing there with him in my arms. This time last year, I was almost to the end of my pregnancy and I was imagining what Christmas would be like with him here. Christmas is definetly better with him here, even if my tree is only half decorated!
