Oh! Christmas Tree!

Saturday I FINALLY convinced J that we absolutely NEEDED a Christmas tree.  I know he wanted one, we just hadn't made the time.  Saturday was a low key day -- it was definitely the time.
We had planned on going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting our own down.  I found out that the pretty type of tree I was hoping to cut down isn't grown in Florida.  boo!!!
After much debate -- OK so it only took 5 seconds -- we went to our local Lowe's.  We had to have been there for an hour searching for the right tree...geez it was almost as pressured as searching for The Dress! HA! Just kidding!
Of course I took some pretty pictures =)
 And here is a picture after it had been set up and lit...I'm also sharing ornament pictures again =)
Of course we HAD to take a family picture in front of the tree =)
After the tree went up we snuggled on the couch and watched Elf! It was an exceptional Saturday. =)

What a fun adventure. The tree looks great all decorated. I LOVE sitting on the couch watching TV with the tree lit and a fire going. It just feels like Christmas!
