Christmas Time!

Thursday night, Ben and I headed out to get what was to become my very first real Christmas tree!

Growing up, my family always had a fake tree.  So I'm super excited to have my very own, real Christmas tree!

Picking out the tree!

Well, we weren't able to actually decorate the apartment until tonight.   So first we set everything out to prep tree decorating.

While watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, we put the lights, beads and ornaments on the tree.  The lights are mostly white (warm white LED lights - we had to go to two different Targets to get enough) with a bit of red scattered around the tree.  Then we put the red beads draped around the tree with silver and red balls, clear and silver icicles, and silver snowflakes.  And of course, a red star at the top!

 We also decorated the rest of the apartment.
