The finished tree




The tree turned out gorgeous. We have mainly red ornaments on it, so it sort of has a theme. lol All my ornaments, though. We have yet to discover what happened to the ornaments Chris had growing up. :-/ Happily, though, we have some ornaments we bought together, so they aren't all just mine. lol

At the Christmas tree farm


Well, Chris and I officially have a Christmas tradition. We returned to Beckwith's Family Christmas tree Farm this year after enjoying it so much last year. We picked out the best tree on the farm, drank rather watery hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies, picked out a couple very charming ornaments, rode on the wagon through the river, and jammed the tree in the trunk of my car. All in all, a very good tradition, in my opinion. :-)

Gingerbread cookies

No electric mixer, no grater for the garlic, no cookie cutters ... no problem for us. :-)
