Our first family tradition

I've missed having a Christmas tree at our Liggett house for some time now. I guess it's been a while since we were kids and needed one so for the past few years we haven't really had a tree. Last year my parents attempted to buy a living Christmas tree, but it's lack of presence in our house tells you one's no longer a living Christmas tree :P

Anyway, this year, Francis and I decided to start a new tradition with Alana. Every year we hope to cut down our own Christmas tree!!!! Our friends the Posse gave us this idea during our annual Thanksgiving get-together this year when we cut down a HUGE tree for the Langdon house.

We immediately decorated the tree with lights and ornaments and the best part of the day was seeing Alana's face as she stared at the fully decorated Christmas tree. I'm a little sad that the end of this year is quickly approaching. I've had such a blessed year: I married my best friend and gave birth to the most beautiful child I've ever seen in my life! But as sad as I am to see this year come to a close, I'm excited for many more memories that Alana will surely bring in the years to come!
