Some of you may be appalled at this, but neither Dan nor I have ever had a fresh tree for Christmas before. But as this is our first Christmas together and we both love the idea of a real tree, we decided to go for it. So we bought our very first real Christmas tree last night! It is so adorable. It's a little 5' Frasier Fir and it's the cutest thing ever. I went a little overboard in using extra branches to decorate the whole place. And then we hung ornaments, the first being a lovely "Our First Christmas" engraved photo one from a wonderful friend. And then we started dancing to Christmas music. And then Preethi died of bliss.
In other news, we're having our seminary Christmas party tomorrow night, and we're playing/singing in our stake performance of Handel's Messiah on Sunday night. If you live in the Philly area, you should definitely come! It will be really fabulous. My parents are coming up for it, for which I'm so excited. Especially because that means we can take them to Scannicchio's. :) Then only one more week before Christmas break! Hurray!
