Tonight we got to decorate our Christmas tree! Some may be asking why we got our tree only 4 days before Christmas. Well to be honest we were unable to afford a tree this year. When my mom heard of this she decided to play Mrs. Claus. lol We are so thankful she did because our house has that great smell of Christmas now. We had such a great time as a family decorating the tree. We put on some great Christmas music like Doris Day, Bing Crosby, and Harry Connick Jr. Now we are all sitting by the tree, drinking hot cocoa, and about to watch some Christmas movies. The picture below the Christmas tree is the first ornament we got as a married couple in 2000. The picture below is our Irish ornament. We got this ornament in a little Irish shop when we took our trip to New Jersey. It was an adorable shop and we have special memories of that day. Well I'm sure we will be keeping our tree well past Christmas this year. lol But that's okay. We will enjoy it as long as the tree will last. Thank you again Mom!
