Meet Frasier {our first Christmas tree}.

Before we jointly celebrated our birthdays at Topo Gigio yesterday, Nate and I picked up our very first Christmas tree. Nate insisted we get the best and we ended up with a 6 1/2 foot tall Frasier Fir. Despite the fact that we do not own ornaments we decided putting it in the stand and stringing the lights would be a huge accomplishment. We purchased 300 white lights {I'm anti colored lights} and got to work!

Disclaimer: I did not do this all by myself. There are no pictures of Nate due to his lack of shirt in efforts to avoid tree sap! And this isn't that kind of blog ...

{Phoebs helping out!}



We are anxious to adorn the tree with beautiful, festive ornaments! However, I'm taking my time and checking out all the stores have to offer before I buy them {and a star}. Sure, we will add new ones to our collection every year, but I'd love to start with a great color scheme! My family takes Christmas trees very seriously. No homemade ornaments, no ugly ornaments. We always end up with a fabulous tree and I have high expectations for our tree as well!
