Alex was excited to find out that we got pick out our Christmas tree when Daddy arrived home from work! After doing much online research into local Christmas tree farms, we decided to hit the neighborhood Home Depot in search of an AFFORDABLE Christmas tree. We found one! A 7 foot tall Blue Spruce (my favorite kind of tree) for $25! The experience wasn't as romantic as a cut-your-own place, but Alex was thrilled nonetheless. The cats, also, are 'thrilled' with the first appearance of a real tree in their house EVER....we're hoping the prickly needles and sap discourage their annual tree-climbing competition.
Alexandra was so excited that she started to do the Chicken Dance. And yes, she's wearing a helmet. Sometimes it's better not to ask.
Last year my friend Sarah gave Alex the sweetest Olivia Pig toy. I happened to find pajamas (at Hanna Andersson) that matched so that Alex and Olivia could be matching Christmas buddies. How cute!
