christmas trees.

Here are the trees of our Christmas past.

2005 - While Josh was in Iraq I picked up a fresh cut tree at a local tree farm in TN. I threw the only lights and ornaments I had on it and called it good. Looking back now it was a bit sad looking.

2006-2008 - We spent Christmas in Nebraska so our little evergreen served as our tree those years. This was Audrey's first tree.

2009- We scored this one at Home Depot! While pregnant with Ben, and Audrey refusing to enjoy the car seat, I remember this was the best we could do.

We have it on the stand but that is about it. Stay tuned for the decorations. We have a family tradition of videoing the tree decorating and lighting. Josh does a great job of editing them into a fun little video. I'll see if we can dig up the first version and post it here soon!
