The Christmas tree is by far one of the most important elements of Christmas celebrations. So many memories are brought back year after year as we go through our boxes of decorations. We have ones saved from before our oldest was even born. Decorations that we bought or were given to us as a gift and the best kind, homemade ones the kids have created. 

We finally got our annual Christmas tree up and decorated. Thanks to my dad for bringing over his 6 1/2 foot tall Prelit Noma tree. I've never had a Prelit tree before so it was interesting. The wires were pretty tangled up at the back from being stored, it was almost discouraging but I managed to get it all untangled and we got it up. 

We kept it simple with decorations, I realized I may have not had enough garland to go around but we made it work and filled in the missing spots with bulbs and other cute decorations. 

Why is it so special to me? For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you may remember the somber Christmas we had last year. Baby M was born and had to spend the holidays in the hospital due to jaundice. This is officially her first Christmas in my eyes. Not to mention her first birthday falls just two days before. 

I can't wait to see underneath our tree filled with all those wonderful presents Santa and his helpers will lovingly wrap up for all of our family this year! For now, we will enjoy the pretty lights!

Happy holiday decorating!
