We finally got our Christmas tree on Sunday, and it's now up in the living room with it's sparkly lights and calming glow. The day started with a power breakfast of bacon and egg sandwiches, and then we piled in the car and listened to carols. It was the most beautiful winter day - the trees looked magical with their frosted branches, and the sky was a cozy grey colour.
We stopped to try and snap a few pictures, and passed by some guys who had gone winter camping the night before. They told us the glowing light from Ikea ruined their 'rustic' experience (although I guess that's what happens when you camp in the city!). The campers graciously took a family photo of us, one of the very few that we have.
After selecting a tree, we shoved it in the back of the car and tied the trunk down. Soren couldn't believe his luck that he got to sit next to his 'tee'. On the way home I decided to stop by Sweet Impressions for a cupcake, because what's better than decorating the Christmas tree on a sugar high?
