Spirit of Christmas

Christmas is such a fun season, especially in Colorado! For the past two weeks, Anthony and I have been indulging in Christmas movies, egg nog, white chocolate mochas, ugly Christmas sweater thrifting, holiday parties, and best of all- cutting down our own Christmas tree! Last weekend we drove up to Woodland Park and searched for our perfect tree. In Colorado, you can cut your own tree for $10/permit. The cutting area spans for miles, so it's a great adventure! It took us 2 hours to find the perfect one, which means something other than a Charlie Brown or Dr. Seuss looking Christmas tree : ) But, I think we found a pretty good one. It's a little over 10 feet tall and fills our vaulted ceiling living room quite nicely. Then with all the Christmas decorations from Aunt Tracy (and the Will's Co.) our house looks so festive for Christmas!

A little sparse, but it fills the room
