"o christmas tree..."

take a gander at this beauty.... (i mean the tree, not ben)



this is the first year of our marriage that we went all out and got a "for real" tree. i went to target and bought 2 packs of 350 lights thinking that would be plenty and that i'd have a leftover strand.... think again whitney. i had to run back to target and get ANOTHER box. all said and done, we ended up with over 900 lights on our tree. okay, so maybe i went a little overboard, but i think our tree is pretty much totally awesome ...don't tell me if you don't agree.

isn't christmas wonderful? sigh... i hope you are all loving life and this wonderful holiday season.

I love your tree! It is beautiful! I think that's the best part about living on the west coast is being able to get a real live tree. (well I guess it's techinically dead but it was alive once!)
