O Christmas Tree!

So last night we finally put up our tree. I shouldn't say "finally" because I think this is just the right time...unlike those fools who put theirs up in November. Anyways, the tree turned out to be too high for our little ceilings and we had to trim a little off the bottom AND the top and even after all that we still had to tip the tree a little to get the angel on top. We decided to put Mya to bed before we got started and I think it was a good idea but then it was brand new this morning and she hasn't stopped touching it since. I think it's the most beautiful tree we've ever had! It's hard to tell a) how big it is when it's outside, b) what its flaws are and c) how full it is. Well, we got 'er home and she's just perfect! The man at the tree farm gave us a good rule of thumb: when you're Christmas tree hunting, always add 2 feet to whatever height you think the tree is. If we had known that we wouldn't have had to cut 2 feet off of our tree, but oh well! She's up now and she's awesome!


And just for nostalgic reasons I thought I'd add a last year photo and a this year photo of the rug rat:
