O Christmas Tree...



This year Clint and I decorated our first Christmas tree together. Actually, last year we decorated my grandmother's tree for her, but this was OUR first tree. I will say we had to do some compromising when it came to decorating. (Welcome to marriage!) Clint is use to a real tree, colored lights, and home-made ornaments. I'm use to a fake tree, white lights, and elaborate decorations. We had to get an artificial tree because of the maintenance of a real tree and honestly the tree we have now is really almost too big for our space. But, my super garage sale find turned out to be a real winner...for $10 you cannot beat it! We have white lights, but colored ornaments and we used a star instead of a bow. And Clint placed most of the ornaments on the tree. I will say we are both very pleased with how it turned out. (For some reason the pictures don't do it justice. It really looks nice.) All in all, I'm glad we compromised and now have a tree we both can enjoy. I can already tell that decorating the tree together will be a Davis Family tradition!

I think it's beautiful. And I agree - it's nearly impossible to get a good picture of a Christmas tree!

The tree looks fantastic! There is something to be said for simple trees. I always go way overboard, but I like it just the same. I know about that compromising thing... You all did a great job!
