We spent a gorgeous Saturday afternoon searching for the perfect Christmas tree with my in-laws.
The weather made it hard to believe Christmas in only a few weeks away.
Sunny and in the 50’s. Totally weird.
But that didn’t stop us from getting into the spirit. Taylor cut down a beautiful tree for his parents house.
Once we had my in-laws tree strapped to the car I got busy searching for our tree.
Since we basically live in a shoebox our tree needed to be on the small size. And small it is.
But now that it is home and decorated with lights it really brightens up the place. Even if it’s only 3 ft tall!
We had to put it up high because Henry lifted a leg as soon as he saw it in the house! Yes he’s potty trained, but a tree in the house is apparently very confusing! I can’t blame him.
But isn’t it a lovely tree?
There are a lot of things about Christmas that I don’t like. For example, shopping. I hate Christmas shopping more than anything. But I do love all the houses in town decorated with lights, wreathes, and of course trees. And I love all the get-togethers that surround Christmas. My favorite thing about this time of year is cooking in my kitchen with a glass of wine, Christmas music playing in the background, and a fire roaring in the living room. It is wonderful.
Last night Taylor and I enjoyed a very simple meal of roasted veggies over couscous.
We roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and green beens in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes. Served over couscous with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper for a wonderfully simple meal.
Enjoy your Sunday. And if you are out there Christmas shopping I should send you money and a list of things I need to get!!!! Have a great day everyone.
