On Our First Date of Christmas…

in 12 Dates of Christmas, J&L Celebrate the Holidays

Yup, it’s that time of year again! And perfect timing, because I’m an emotional disaster right now, and this is keeping me smiling :)

…we purchased our Christmas Tree! We bought it the day after Thanksgiving, as per our tradition, but didn’t put it up until a couple days later to give it time to fall. It’s slightly lopsided, but we love it!

We even put an extra couple sets of lights on it this year, because my motto is, you can never have too many lights!!

This is also the first year we have a second tree up (well, minus the mini blue one we have on the kitchen counter). I surprised Justin with a tree full of all his Hallmark sports ornaments! His mom had been giving him the football and basketball players for a number of years, and rather than fill our main tree up with guys, I gave them their own spotlight.

We’ve done some other decorating around the house, but nothing really different than we did last year. If we decide to do anything way out of the ordinary, I’ll be sure to share it!

Have you put up your tree yet? I love to get ours up early and leave it up as long as possible!

We put up our (artificial) tree the day after Thanksgiving. And I actually got my husband to put lights on the outside of the house this year, so I’m excited.

Awesome! Justin put our outside lights up a few weeks ago before it got too cold, but I wish we could do more! He says no way though, since it would mean getting on the roof haha
