We moved into our not-quite-finished house on December 23, 2009. And so, I give you, our 2009 Christmas tree:
Pretty glamorous, no? The shop vac is such a nice touch. I happen to kind of love it though, and the memory of our first Christmas in our home. But since the decoration was a little bit lacking last year, we decided to jump the gun a bit this year and put this guy up the day after Thanksgiving:
I had this ornament made last year and we proudly hung it from the mantel. This year it has a place of honor, front and center on our tree.
I have a feeling that the appearance of our Christmas tree is only one teeny tiny difference in a year full of big old changes in the O' home :)
