Jake and I went and chopped down our first Christmas tree last sunday!  It was Jakes first ever time chopping a Christmas tree down and he did a fantastic job!  He’s a regular lumberjack 😉 We spent some time shopping around the Christmas shop there at Sleighbells (where we chopped down the tree) and got our first tree topper! 🙂  It’s a very pretty gold star, we love it.  We had pot roast for dinner and drank egg nog and listened to Christmas music while we decorated.  It was a lovely Christmas date 🙂 

Here’s the final product! Tada!

I am so very excited for our first Christmas together and for Christmas break!  More pictures of my Christmas break creations to come!
