We decided to get a Christmas tree (read: I convinced Forrest that we should get one)!
Forrest assembled the tree yesterday... yes, fake. but whatever, we'll find pine scented candles, eventually.
In addition to the tree, I couldn't resist a Christmas hat.
We decorated the tree yesterday, then realized we didn't have an extension cord. So the tree lighting this evening was extra dramatic and perfectly aligned with the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting in NYC. See video below.
Here is a photo of our tree from outside our house.
