One of many attempts to get a cute "Christmas card" picture by using the camera timer. Needless to say, the dogs weren't exactly cooperating.
The actual Christmas card photo, taken by my talented little brother.
A couple of weeks ago, we put up our first Christmas tree together. It is truly the most beautiful tree I've ever seen, and I get to look at it every day! We bought some cheap shiny Christmas ball ornaments, a few strands of white lights, and a light-up star to go on top. We each had a few small ornaments from our childhood, and my mom gave us a beautiful "First Christmas" one to add. I don't know exactly how, but it turned out perfect.
