Aaron and I were out doing some shopping in Little Rock, and I saw this car coming out of Old Navy.

So, when I saw this car, I immediately thought back to the one my parents had - however I was corrected by my Mom. We had a Chrysler New Yorker. I don't know what the Mercury equivalent was to the New Yorker, but they're the same, right? :)

Plans for next year!

Saw this tree at What's New - in Murfreesboro, TN. LOVE the concept. So surely with the trees that Aaron and I both have, we should be able to do this next Christmas!

Aaron and I celebrated our first Christmas together. We had a wonderful time. Here we are - on Christmas Eve.

Here we are with Travis!

Christmas Eve dinner: "Tennessee Steak Au Poivre, Potato Gratin, Roasted Asparagus, & Popover. We used our china, fancy flatware, & pineapple flutes! It was excellent!

Our First Christmas!

Our first Christmas together - as husband and wife! Such an exciting time! Aaron and I are so looking forward to Christmas - so much that we put up decorations two weeks before Thanksgiving. We did this so that we would
be able to fully enjoy them!

One evening, we went to Wal-Mart, and we came across a white tree. We bought all of the decorations there and put it up that weekend. Travis helping us out...

Our finished product.

We thought we needed a 2 foot white tree - with pink and green ornaments.

Here's the mantle! LOVE IT. Aaron had a deer that he had spray painted white, but due to the texture of the deer, it didn't look great. This year, we painted him red. We're really pleased with the results.

Now onto the tree! We started off with red, blue, silver, green ornaments. Once we were finished hanging them, we placed sentimental ornaments. My ornaments were still in TN, and I wouldn't get them till after Thanksgiving. We made attempts to save room for mine. After we finished placing the ornaments, we decided that this was enough - that it was our tree.

Some of your may recall Aaron's tree from last year.

Aaron and I ordered an ornament for our first Christmas together.

Ethan and Jennifer got us this one. I absolutely love it.

And we couldn't forget Travis!

While we were on our honeymoon, we went to a pottery place, All Fired Up. There we painted our own pottery. We chose to paint Christmas ornaments. I painted the stocking.


We also put up a tree for the "Newlywed" ornaments. It had different ornaments and their meanings.

Thought we would add a decoration to the tree.

My favorite spot in the house - this end of the couch. Love the view!

Here's wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas!

We've been married six months! Silly to be celebrating six month, eh? It's been the best six months of my life! Looking forward to many more months/years to come!
