But take our Christmas tree.
Out little tree is only about 3 feet tall. We got him at Carrefour on a shopping trip originally meant to replace a burned out lightbulb. But we found the Christmas tree section, and, knowing we needed one to remind ourselves of the glorious season, we picked the cutest (i.e smallest) one.
My next dilemma was what to decorate it with. Not having time or resources to go look for the kind of ornaments I like, I racked my brain and dug around for things that I could use.

I added some sentimental and ornamental key chains which gave it a very personal touch. This is definitely OUR tree.
For the tree skirt, I draped a red bag around the base (you'd never know!). Of course, Totoro wanted in on the festivities, too.
Here are some pictures from our Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving!

|Excited about the turkey but not quite sure how to carve it.|

|Our spread (people brought food too. It was yummy!)|
We are so blessed to be around such good people. Excited for what this Christmas season will bring, and happy to be ringing in new traditions to celebrate!
