25 Days of Christmas: Day 1 - O'Christmas trees

It's that time of year again! This is my favorite time of year and even though I've been a terrible blogger this year, I can't let my 25 Days of Christmas tradition end. This will be my 8th year recording how we celebrate Christmas and the entire holiday season. We can't wait to share our Christmas happenings with all of you and hope you look forward to following along as we countdown to Christmas!

Up first today is our Christmas tree! We are celebrating our first Christmas in our new home that we moved into this Summer and we bought a new Christmas tree to celebrate! We have really tall cathedral ceilings in our living room/dining room so we bought a new 12' tree that fits perfectly in the space. The kids are obsessed with it and did a great job helping decorate this year. I was really impressed how careful they were, especially since Sofia just turned 2! In fact the only one to break ornaments was me, HA!

Our Christmas tree is always my favorite part of setting up our decorations. There are so many memories in each of the ornaments; places we've been, momentous occasions, vacations, babies born and milestones in our life. Now it just needs lots of pretty wrapped presents underneath. So here she is to make her debut, our 2016 Christmas tree!

In addition to our family tree, the kiddos got brand new trees for their new rooms as well. They loved setting them up and decorating. We went and picked out a few new ornaments and we also added some of their ornaments they've made or been gifted. It will be fun to continue to add to them over the years.
