First Christmas Tree

Happy 50th Birthday Lacey

Blake and I have experienced a few firsts together the past two weeks. We got our first Christmas tree, started a few Christmas traditions and our first real snow together! My parents are also experiencing their first Christmas as empty nesters. 

I was also able to take Blake to the City of Lacey's 50th Celebration. There was a big open house with some great speakers talking about our history and our future. Then it was finished off with a lighted parade and tree lighting. I love being able to share this city that I love with Blake, and I love that he'll come to anything I drag him too. Including, the City Council meeting I have to go to tonight :). 

It has really been a magical couple of weeks to help really bring the Christmas spirit into our lives. Something else that has really made this Christmas special is the #LightTheWorld campaign, that I talked about a few weeks ago here. It has really helped us not worry so much about presents, but pay attention to the real reason for the season. Serving others and celebrating Christ. I know it already started but you should start it now if you haven't already!

What we did for the first day was make little snack bags to keep in our car for anyone in need that we may see when we are out and about. Such a easy way to help out!

I hope you all have a magical and very merry Christmas!

  1. Fun! I have actually never had an actual living tree for Christmas. But tonight Derek and I are picking out our fake Christmas tree out together cause they're on sale. Does that count?

    1. haha totally counts! But you should get a real tree someday, they are the best!
