In the mean time... We got our tree today. It's big and full - not as big as we usually get, but a perfect size for our little cottage, I think. I can't wait to decorate it with lights and ornaments! We went out today to buy a new tree skirt, as our old one got lost in the move. We looked at The Christ.mastree Shoppe and Bos.covs Department Store and couldn't find anything we liked. So, my mom came up with the idea of using one of our Christmasy tablecloths (since our dining room table is up in my Mom's bedroom due to lack of a Dining Room!) It looks great in my opinion and kind of reminds me of how in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" Charlie uses Linus's blue blanket to swaddle the bottom of the tree.
Oh, in other news - watch this AWESOME video!! I've always been a little envious of those who go to Carolina, as they are soooo school spirited there and have amazing athletic teams.
