Last Minute Christmas

Once upon a time Derek and I went on a search for a Christmas tree. It was quite an ordeal. We tried starting this weekend. We went to a ton of stores trying to find a Christmas tree stand but everyone was sold out. We decided to continue today. Walmart, Lowe's, Home Depot...all out. This is what happens when you procrastinate. We wanted to go earlier but with moving and unpacking we haven't had time. 

Good news. Home Depot had our tree and {finally} Kmart had our stand. So after lots of searching, traffic, and getting lost we finally have our Christmas tree up and decorated. I love how it turned out and for the couple weeks we keep it we are going to love it. 

Slowly but surely we are starting to collect our own ornaments. I look forward to picking out an ornament each year for our family.
Derek put this together for our first Christmas.

From our first Christmas together.

My mom gave this to us last year. It was our present from Germany.

Merry Christmas everyone! 


  1. Glad you found a tree and got it up! Looks cute!

  2. Beautiful tree! I'm glad you guys kept looking, because I think I would've just given up.
