Twelve dates of Christmas: On our first date of Christmas...

...we decorated our Christmas tree together as a family of three. 
Unwrapping our Christmas ornaments is one of my favorite moments of the holiday season. There are so many memories, vacations, and events represented in our ornaments- mine and Brian's first trip to Mexico, a gnome in honor of my grandpa, a lobster from a weekend getaway to Boston... I love reminiscing and telling stories as we hang them all with care. 

We are trying an artificial tree for the first time this year. We have always loved picking out our Christmas trees and carrying them home, but the ease of having a car and purchasing a fake one this year was just too good to pass up. Once our new addition was decorated I realized that fake trees make me just as happy as real ones. As soon as I get home every day I run upstairs and plug in the lights! Plus I am enjoying not having to stress about Boo drinking all of the water out of the tree stand. 

What special traditions do you have during the holidays? I would love to hear about them as we embark on our fourth year of Christmas dates!

  1. Now that you have the car, you should definitely do Dyker Heights this year! It really is amazing in person.
