On November 25th, Brian and I put up our Christmas tree and other decorations with the help of Amy, Brett, Emeli, Michelle and Wes. It was a holly, jolly time! We had Christmas music playing, hot cocoa brewing, chocolate chip cookies baking and Brian even made us Belgian waffles with a yummy apple topping. We sure do love Christmas!
Our last Christmas tree was sold when we moved to California, so we had to buy a new one. Brian got a good Black Friday deal on an artificial, 7-and-a-half-foot, pre-lit, slim Virginia Pine from Target. Some of our decorations came from Target also, but many were purchased at Hobby Lobby and Tai Pan Trading. The leaf candle holder was a wedding gift from Brett, from Bath and Body Works. The wreaths were decorated by yours truly.
Our color theme this year was brown, gold and red, which was quite the departure from previous years. Our Christmas decorations in our Salt Lake City apartment in 2010 were red, white and silver. Click here to look at old photos!
