This year, Brian and I decided to go all in and get a real Christmas tree. When I pictured us picking out a tree, I had visions of us all bundled up, walking through a tree farm hand in hand just waiting for that perfect tree to cut as a light snow fell. In reality, after a long day of running errands and a ticking time bomb in the back seat of the car named Olivia, we stopped at Lowe’s and grabbed the first tree we found. We cleared a spot in the dining room, because after all, that’s the most logical place for a Christmas tree, and busted out the ornaments. Check out these beauties -
The newest addition to our collection is an ornament Grandma Hawkins got Olivia to mark her first Christmas -
And the final product, drum roll please….
It might be a little bare (keep in mind last Christmas we had a 3 foot tall artificial tree), but we like to look on the bright side and think it’s less ornaments for Riley to rip off and eat!
