Christmas with the Lees

Ben and I will be traveling south for Christmas but I didn't let that stop me from getting a real tree or decorating the apartment!

I LOVE real trees for Christmas. Every year growing up I can remember going with my parents to pick out the tree. We would take it home and then mom would let us spray it with white snow. We would hang ornaments that we made, got on vacation or that my grandma gave us every Thanksgiving.

Now to be honest, Ben enjoys real trees but he would be okay having a fake one, especially since we live in a small space but we decided to keep the tradition going. Here is the tree Ben suggested we get...

It was super cute but we decided for this one :)

The tree lot was across the highway from our apartment so we walked it home. It was fun just walking down the sidewalk carrying it and getting it into the apartment.

So here is the finished product along with our Christmas village, nativity scene and the reindeer and sled.

And our stocking holders and the fun towels for the kitchen :)

And finally my beloved snow babies!

For Christmas Ben and I gave each other a kitchen table. There wasn't room for one in the studio and we actually didn't have one in our last place either. So for the first time in three years, we are thrilled to have a kitchen table!!!

Hope that you are enjoying this Christmas season with those you love!
