Christmas has arrived at the Tallman's!!!

Trenton & I finally found a night to go get our Christmas tree, and I have to say...I think it's perfect! It's without a doubt the best one we've had in 4 years and it's so pretty. Each year I think I want one of those trees with ornaments that are all the same color and ribbon, and each year I put up the one with Trenton's John Deere ornaments, my great grandma's crocheted snowflakes, and the bear my kindergarten teacher gave me and I fall in love with my tree all over! I love my husband who spent 3 hours setting up the tree, helping me pick up pine needles, answering my questions of "Does this look okay here?", untangling strands of crochet popcorn, and hanging ornaments. After all that, he looked at me and said, "we better be close to done because I'm losing my enthusiasm!" What a trooper! I should have taken his picture! I told him I can't believe this is our 5th Christmas together. I have so many memories already, I can't imagine what people who've been married 50 years feel like! After we put the tree up and turned off the lights, it was so peaceful and beautiful. I told Trenton that for the first time in 2 months, I felt like there was true joy in our house again. Now...if only I could manage to get more than 3 presents wrapped.

Until next time.....

I think I see four presents wrapped under that tree. It looks great. I just can't imagine anybody being grumpy while decorating for Christmas.
