Our 1st Christmas Excitement!

I love Christmastime, and I love decorating for Christmas! I was so excited this year to have our own apartment to decorate. I kept on asking Mike when we could start decorating in early November, he then told me that their was a rule that you weren't allowed to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Well, the days kept geting closer, and I finally talked him in to getting our tree (it was in my parents attic, their old one) about a week before Thanksgiving. It wouldn't fit in either one of our small 2 door cars, so we just put it on top!

We FINALLY put the tree up 2 days before Thanksgiving, because we decided that we would be with our families at their houses on Thanksgiving, and the day after, and of course, I would be SHOPPING on black Friday! So we did, I got to use all of my new decorations that I had bought last year on sale after Christmas. Here are some pictures of our tree, decorations, and even some wrapped presents under the tree!
