Setting up our first Christmas Tree

When we lived in our apartment we never bought a Christmas tree because we were never in town for Christmas. Plus there were always a ton of Christmas trees in the building. This year was a very special year for us. This was our first year putting up our own Christmas tree and letting Sawyer decorate it. He loved every minute of it! It was so much fun watching him place all the ornaments in their perfect spot. He is definitely going to be a particular boy!!!

I made him stop for just a minute so I could take a picture. He wasn't very happy about it!

Once he got a little closer to being done, he was all smiles. He did such a great job!

Once the tree was decorated we turned off the lights and lit up the tree. We read stories with Sawyer under the tree lights. What a great memory!

Here is the tree in the the day light without the lights. I think it turned out pretty good. I guess it will get better every year!!!

I can't tell you how excited we were to finally have a house that feels like a home for the holidays! Yeah for houses!!!
