Christmas Time is Here...

We've had the first snow, our decorations are up, and our stockings are hung! (Except Claire's) She won't quite be here in time for Christmas, but I will still probably make it anyway.  I can use it as an excuse to leave up Christmas the whole month of January :)  

The only thing we are still missing is a tree.  We haven't really decided what to do about a tree, since we have a nine month old puppy who is extremely curious living in the house.  I don't know if it's worth the headache of keeping her from pulling it over on top of herself.  We've joked that we're just going to count the chalkboard print.  Truthfully though, I would be sad if we skipped out on a tree.  I think we are going to try and find a small one that we can put on the table out of Rory's reach.  It won't be quite as festive, but it is better than no tree at all.  If anyone knows where to buy two or three foot trees let us know!


  1. We were worried about the same issue with Oskar last Christmas. He was only 5 months old at the time. We decided to get one and I'm so happy we did! We had to teach him, but we were surprised with how good he was around it. It also made for really cute pictures because he found a really comfy spot on the tree skirt. I say get one! You've waited ALL year for it (at least that was my thinking)!

    Cute decorations by the way :)

    1. Good points! We will probably cave and just get one. You are right that we will have to teach her anyway, so we might as well do it this year :)
