Bueller? Bueller?

Yes, I know, I haven't blogged in awhile. Things have been CRAZY!!!

So, here I am, catching you up on things that have happened. (And sadly, some of this goes all the way back to November! Yes, I have still have Thanksgiving posts to make!)

Since I've moved to NOLA a few years ago, our little group has formed some wonderful traditions that make the holiday season the holiday season. Each year we jump start Christmas with a little bit of Christmas tree shopping. We always go Christmas tree shopping on the night before Thanksgiving. It's Mr. B, myself, L&L, and Lindsay's Mom & Uncle. It's been a wonderful tradition that we enjoy and make a point of going to each year. Like I said, it jump starts the Christmas Season!

Unfortunately, this year was different, with Lindsay's mom and Uncle not being there. But, still, we looked over the trees and brought one home with us! It was fun! Here's a few pictures of the trip!!

Opening the first tree of the Year!!
(Mr. B is the orange in the background!)

After much searching, we found the right tree!
 We opened several trees that night and this one is the one we decided was the right tree for our first Christmas as a married couple!! We opened 2 that had MAJOR balding issues. The first we named Archibald, the second, Baldie. For us, if we name a tree, it's not a good sign for that tree!

I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your tree down!

L&L, Baby B and their tree!
 After you pick a tree in the Garden Department of Home Depot, you take it to the side of the building and they cut the end of the trunk off and the bottom branches so that it can go into your Christmas tree stand. We traditionally take a picture while waiting in this line. You get a chance to see our trees on the carts. This is always a fun time!
Waiting to get the tree trimmed.
This year, Christmas tree shopping was different. Like I said, Lindsay's mom and uncle weren't there and that  made things different. It was sad not to have them there as it made our little party just seem incomplete. But, there was "good" different too. It was very exciting picking our FIRST Christmas tree as a married couple. It's amazing how much better life is since "I do." It's unbelievable how things are just better. It doesn't feel like much has changed, but at the same time, everything is so wonderfully better. I LOVE it. It was great to go Christmas tree shopping. Also, it's great to have pictures of Lindsay with the baby bump. I'm SO happy for them and can't wait to meet my niece or nephew in February!!

So, here's to extending the Christmas Season just a bit via a few more blogging posts and to a Happy New Year, in case I don't get back here before then!
