So as most of you know this will the first Christmas in our new house! To say I'm excited doesn't even begin to cover it! Not only will their be an adorable corgi butt under our tree this year but that tree will be in a place that we own... well will own in 30 years or so lol but its really OUR place. That alone makes Christmas a magic time.
But I do have to admit trying to decorate our house was well... kind of a nightmare. I was far to excited the morning of Black Friday to decorate the while Gregory was out with his Dad and sister picking out real Christmas trees for their homes (We unfortunately can not have a real tree as I'm allergic to pine) so Gregory and I are stuck with the fake ones!
The first thing I attempted to tackle was the tree... We lucked out as the previous home owner left their pre-lite white light 7ft tree and our original tree was a hand-me-down from my parents who got it from my aunt and uncle... Yeah, I don't even know how old the tree is but it is surprisingly in amazing shape but doesn't offer the luxury of being pre-lite and seeing as I'm a whopping 5'1" and was home alone attempting to string lights on the tree would have been rather comical for someone watching and probably frustrating to the point I'd more than likely end up tackling the tree and throwing it out in the yard... [Can you tell I have amazing patience?]
So after hauling the tree out from under the stairs and getting all the Christmas bins in to our living room I pulled the tree out and started to shape the lower third of the tree.

|2nd section plug... seriously?!|
|Our pretty pretty Christmas tree!|
|Pitiful looking right?!|
|Much better right?!|

A few other decorations I set our around the house were my Holiday vase which I opted for Pine cones ornaments (my aunt bought me) and a small 25 strand of white lights. As well as two battery operated pillar candles.
