Here's a glimpse of some of my favorite decorations. I love our simple, little tree, and hate to see the day that we get a perfectly beautiful artificial one. One of my favorite things Scott and I do is buy a Christmas book each year. We didn't used to be super official about it, but now we give one to Lucy every year. We write a little note in it for her, so when she is older she can look back and maybe relive a bit of these early Christmas's, that she wont remember, but we always will. The Smokers are gifted from Bruce and Lynette and we feel so fancy when we set them out each year. I feel like I'm getting in touch with my German roots. I didn't take pictures of our socks, but they hang from the window. Isn't that where they are supposed to go?
