Christmas tree decorating was a success! It was a cold night for getting a tree, but that didn’t stop us. Mal and I picked a real beauty! 😀
Decorating our Christmas tree was such a great time! We had Rockin’ Holiday music and a warm, toasty fire. We didn’t have wine, but we had eggnog and holiday M&M’s. Sounds like a good night to me!
I actually think this year’s tree decorating was my favorite so far. Last year was fun because Murphy was a tiny puppy and I made some pretty kickass Vegan Sugar Cookies, but neither of us were happy with our living situation. I think I remember enjoying decorating our tree in 2008, but sadly those photos are long gone.
Last night definitely put us in the holiday spirit!
The pug, however, sat on the couch and pouted. (I think he was upset about “his” sticks were going into the fireplace once again.)
What a little Scrooge!
Did you happen to notice that our Christmas tree only has white lights on it? We usually decorate with colored lights, but Mal insisted on white this year. I let him have his way (pick your battles, right?), but I definitely prefer colored lights on the Christmas tree.
