Our new Christmas tree. After years of fighting with the lights and each other OVER the lights, we broke down and bought a new pre-lit tree this year. It is also self-shaping, so it was up and ready to decorate in about 15 minutes. It felt strange, but I don't miss the hours of putting on lights!
This year I am attempting to make my own dressing. I even dried and cubed the bread! It was a labor of love, so I hope our guests like it. I used this recipe from Allrecipes.com because of all the great reviews.
Here's Eli's crab ornament from last year. I found 3 new ones this year at Hobby Lobby and will try to post pictures later.
This is our first ornament as a couple. I sent it to Jason while we were living miles and miles apart.
I was playing around with the camera today and here's one shot of some of the shiny glass balls. I love trying to photograph the Christmas tree. Hopefully my pictures will get better with practice.
