O Christmas Tree...

This is the first year Caleb and I have got our own Christmas tree...well Caleb actually says it's our second tree...

I bought this little beauty for our first Christmas. We barely had any room in our tiny apartment and we'd be spending the holiday out of town, but I still had to do a some decorating. It comes out every year.

Anyway...this is our first tree to decorate that's taller than both of us. We went on Saturday to pick it out with my parents.

Elijah loved helping put the lights on. 

 We have a tradition that started with my great-grandparents. We decorate our tree with red lights, red balls, starting with tiny balls at top and they gradually getting larger towards the bottom.

 Then we make snow and spread it over the branches.

 Everyone came over to help put on the snow. 


 We top it with the Christmas tree topper a dear friend gave us for our wedding.

And it turns out beautiful.

I love your tree decorating tradition, and the fact that you had family over to participate. What a unique idea! We have the same tree topper, and we just set it on our tree today!

Love to you...
