Brooke wanted to get an early start on decorating for Christmas, so we have had our Christmas tree up for a few weeks now. We decided that we didn't want to mess with watering the tree constantly and cleaning up pine needles with Nixon running around all the time so we found a sweet deal for a fake tree at Big Lots on Black Friday. I hung a lot of the bulbs and Brooke hung most of the ornaments. I think the tree looks great. We are still looking for something to put on the top of the tree. If anyone knows of a place to look for tree toppers, preferably a star or an angel let us know. We bought a punch of pine cones that smell really good to place around our place to make up for the non-smell of a fake tree. I love the smell of Christmas trees and didn't want to miss out on that.                               
This isn't our first Christmas together since we have been married but our first Christmas in our own place. We are really excited to start a few of our own traditions during the Holidays. Brooke loves to be creative and make things her own. We love Christmas and can't wait to spend more time with family and friends over the holidays.
