Up goes my baby tree
I finally have a Christmas tree! Finally! I'm so excited. I went out with my pals Maarty and Sarah and cut this adorable wee little guy down on Saturday. And when I got home from our tree cutting/shopping adventure, I was so excited to get my tree up and decorated that I literally left bags and bags of groceries unpacked and sprawled all over the hallway, while I got my tree in a vase (his tree stand).
All of my decorations were made by me in the last couple of weeks. I made it my mission to make each and every one of them. The only things that aren't handmade are the chocolate bells and the garland... and the lights of course. I'm really happy with how my handmade creations transformed a regular old baby tree into a totally festive, adorable Christmas tree.
With the lights on in my living room and the Christmas cards and gifts surrounding my little tree, I'm finally starting to feel festive. I can't believe that Christmas is only six days away!! All I have left to do is wrap my gift exchange present and bake some delicious goodies, and then it's party time. I can't wait to drink hot chocolate and Baileys, eat turkey and enjoy the company of my pals.
I hope my tree and my new-found Christmas spirit will be enough to make each of them find their own while they're away from their families this year.
Happy last minute shopping and wrapping everyone!
