Trimming the Tree!

This year, we picked up our tree the Friday after Thanksgiving from a local place, Herman's Produce, who gets them from right down the road... and they are as fresh as the day they were cut {which was also the day before we picked it out}, so it was perfect!  J is always a sucker for a big tree and this year was no different.

It certainly makes our tiny living room very cozy.

I tackled the lights and J put on the star!

Our tree is filled with ornaments from the many trips we have taken since we started dating. 
These are some of my favorites:
Radio City/NYC - Christmas 2012,
Clearwater Beach - 2008, 
The Smokies {homemade of course, from our camping trip} 2009, 
The Biltmore - Thanksgiving 2010 with my parents!

...and some of my all-time favorites. 
Our Honeymoon in Antigua 2011,
KA snowflake - made by my AOII girls for J right after we met in 2007,
Auburn Santa - College graduation 2006,
Wedding Program Ornament {made by me} in 2012

Putting up our tree each year brings back so many wonderful memories, I look forward to it each and every year and hope we are lucky enough to continue to add to our collection. 

Just a few snapshots from the weekend. We had fun Friday night handing out hot cocoa at the local Christmas parade. The storms held off just long enough for Main Street to enjoy the sounds of the season... and even a few clydesdales too!

Saturday night was our staff party... where we celebrated at the Abigail Inn with a big Auburn WIN!! 

Best pic of the night... J stealing the lottery ticket from Mrs. Mary during Dirty Santa! 

Merry Christmas!!!
