O Christmas Tree

We finally went and got our Christmas tree last week. Unfortunately we were dumb enough to go on what had been the coldest day of the month so far- it was in the twenties. So we found the perfect tree pretty quickly.

Here's Kent doin' all the cuttin'. Very manly.

Since I'm highly anal and want a Christmas tree that doesn't look like my children just threw ornaments at it with their eyes closed, last year we bought a fake tree to put upstairs in the loft. So we gave them ornaments to decorate it with that don't break. Some of the ornaments are from Kent's grandmother, Lois. I have to say, they're amazing. She sewed all of them herself.

And yes, I realize our tree is naked and lacking a tree skirt.

Did I mention that last week Melanie turned 1 month? I can't believe she's getting so big so quickly, but at the same time it's been a long month. I'm frantically trying to put her in as many cute little outfits that were given to me before she grows out of them.
