Our Second Christmas

Tyler is always excited to start pulling out the Christmas decorations.  Last year we began in early November.  This year we started decorating on Tyler's birthday as it was what he wanted.

Tyler fixed the bottom of the snow globe so that it rotates once again.

I bought this nativity the day I was induced.  I have been eyeing it for years and decided to purchase it before I knew how much having a baby would cost.  I was afraid I would rationalize that I couldn't afford it after Madison was born.  I also locked myself out of the car twice at Costco with my purchase.

We had to do a little rearranging before we could put the tree up.  Space is limited at our place and I wasn't even sure we would be able to put the tree up.  It ended up inches away from my face when I slept.

One of our Christmas traditions is an ornament each year from my mom.  It was nice to have ornaments to put on our tree after being married.  This year my mom bought Madison a Lenox giraffe for her first Christmas.
