Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

We continue to go to our same spot to pick out our real Christmas Tree.  We continue to be glad that we do.  The people there are so kind and helpful.  They are also there to truly spread the Christmas Cheer!  The prices seemed like they had gone up from last year, so out of curiosity I asked.  The guy said, no I don't think so, what do you remember paying last year?  He gave it to us for that price, at least $10 off. 

We also loved that after he helped strap the tree to the roof of our car he waved good-bye saying "Merry Christmas, God Bless You!"  It's not very often that a total stranger will say 'God' out in public anymore. 

After all, Jesus is the reason for the Season!  Sorry, I couldn't resist :)

Picking out the perfect Tree

Getting ready to bring it in

Reid and I enjoyed decorating the tree while Sally napped.  It could not have been more picture perfect, it started snowing while we were listening to Christmas music and remembering the stories that go with each ornament.
Each morning Sally comes down excited to see the "Beautiful Tree."  Each morning she has to point out her most favorite ornaments, the ones containing Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus, of course!

In the evenings we are often found in our living room with the lights out except for the Tree, Christmas music playing and dancing around!

**Looking forward to the middle of the night feedings. Just me and my newborn, snuggled under the lights of the tree, while the rest of the world sleeps...that is, if he or she chooses to arrive before Christmas!
