Oh Christmas Tree
Hallelujah! We have our Christmas tree!!! I waited patiently all last week for Saturday to roll around so we could get our tree, and after a couple decided they didn't want to throw down that much money on the beautiful tree they had untied and twirled around to confirm there were no bald spots, we snagged the best looking tree on the lot. Aaron totally pulled a Clark Griswold when he convinced me the nearly 9 ft tree would miraculously fit under our 8 ft ceiling. Needless to say we had to cut the top off, but other than that it's perfect! Haha.
We spent the weekend decorating the tree, (which is one of my favorite things to do during Christmastime!) as well as wrapping presents, listening to holiday music, watching Christmas movies, and doing some online Christmas shopping. We were obviously craving the funny stuff because we watched Elf, National Lampoon, and Deck the Halls. Oh and 22 Jump Street. Yes, the one with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Yes, it was funny, but of course the first one was way better. . . which is the case with most movie sequels with the exception of Twilight.
Anyways, we are so excited for Bendelle's first Christmas even though she won't really understand what's going on. And even though she is way too young for it, I am totally eying Elf on the Shelf. I think she'll be ready for it in two years. What do you think? Good age to introduce it?
But for now we are completely satisfied with this beautiful, pure and innocent stage she is in. I am soaking in her baby smell, gummy smile, and goo-goo, gaa-gaas. Not to mention her hilariously loud toots and poops you can probably hear from across town. Sooo precious. ;)
