Oh, Christmas Tree!

The tradition used to be the family heading up to Apple Hill, cutting down a tree, and then decorating it that evening after a dinner of chili and cornbread. Don't forget the apple pie for dessert!

JB and I got our own fake tree since I don't like dealing with crowds, cold weather, waking up early, or spiders and sap from the tree. 1161 tips on that tree and I perfected each one of them the day we put it up:

(OCD dream/nightmare)

We had to wait a whole week to have the family over to decorate and have chili and cornbread with apple pie for dessert. My grandma gives us an ornament each year and writes the year on them and my mom had all of the ones from over the years at her house. JB and I got our own silver and blue ones to match the house and then sprinkled the rest of the tree with the other keepsake ornaments:

(Time for the star!)
(We didn't have a skirt so I used the quilt my mom made that matches our house)
(Christmas Corner - my mom made the stockings too)

Ta-daaaaa! Merry Christmas and happy birthday to me!
