O Christmas Tree

We've been busy, busy, busy getting ready for Christmas. This last weekend we finally got the last piece of the puzzle in terms of decor. The tree! This year we went to a local garden center to pick out our tree (thanks to a great Groupon I picked up in the fall). It was a great experience, and the girls had lots of fun walking around, checking out the beautifully decorated trees inside the garden center, and eating the free snacks they had.

Here are a few photos of our expedition.

And another shot of the fully decorated tree.

Ellie was a great help this year. Last year she put all her ornaments up in about a 2' x 2' square. This year she was very good about spreading the love around, and there was minimal readjustment after bed. ;)

There's very little left on our list to do. A few stocking stuffers to pick out, one more gift card to order, a bit of cooking/baking (and of course some cleaning - blah). I'm ALMOST starting to feel relaxed...
