I woke up Monday morning in the mood to decorate. I pulled out all of my decorations and put on Christmas music. Willa loved dancing to the music and looking at all of the decorations. Matt and I have been married 7 years and we've never put up a big Christmas tree because we've always been out of town on Christmas. We have a little 2 foot fiber optic tree that we always set up, but that's it.
I didn't want to spend the next month keeping Willa away from the tree so I had decided I wasn't going to put one up again. But as Willa and I were going through the decorations, I realized it was Willa's first Christmas. A little girl needs a tree. So we jumped in the car and went shopping for our very own Christmas tree. I've always loved the artificial skinny alpine trees and I found some. I love them. I also bought beads and glittery red unbreakable balls. I am so happy with our trees. And so far, Willa has pretty much left them alone.
