Christmas Tree oh Christmas Tree
So, it being my first holiday season away from home i thought that i HAD to have a christmas tree to feel some christmas joy! So we went to the Grocery store and got a christmas tree. We took it out to the car hooked it on top of the car and pulled it in the house ALL BY OURSELVES!!! it was pretty funny but it's so beautiful now!!! We went to Wal-Mart and got some $1 ornaments (Gold and Red of Course) and put some pretty white lights on it and it just looks SO pretty!!!!! But it didn't just stop there, you can't have a pretty tree and have the rest of the house be ugly so i got some wwrapping paper and went crazy! i wrapped up some boxes to make presents under the tree. I also wrapped up some pictures on the wall to make them look like presents and also the doors and window! AND then i made some cute little stockings with all of our names on them! it was so fun and it really helped me to not be so homesick! I have slept out under the tree every single night ever since!!! i love it! it's just so beautiful!!!
