Tree Trimming.

After our belated Thanksgiving feast we trimmed our first tree together! Adam’s work was giving away its company tree “free to a good home”, so we went for it. Perhaps we’ll upgrade during the after-Christmas sales, but I’m loving the holiday cheer it brings to our apartment. We were a little nervous about having a tree up with Arwen, but she was great when we decorated and hasn’t tried to attack it in any way (she’s also awesome at avoiding it while playing fetch). We chose a snowflake as our tree topper as I grew up with a star and Adam grew up with an angel…seemed like a good compromise (if we ever see an angel holding a star we will scoop that baby up!). There’s also some garland above our window & lights twinkling on our bookshelves.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe Christmas is almost here!

  1. I love how the shadow of the snowflake topper looks like something gorier on the 007 poster. 🙂

    Beautiful tree. Happy holidays to you.

  2. The tree is lovely! And I’m glad to read that it hasn’t been in danger of attacks or vigorous wagging on the part of Arwen!

  3. Such sweet pictures of you guys decorating your first tree together! I love how the lights shine on the walls. Merry Christmas!
