We got our tree!

We went to get our tree yesterday. We really wanted to do something different this year rather than get our usual cut tree. A friend of mine told me that her family used to buy potted trees and then bring them in and out of the house year after year until they got too big and then they would plant them. So we decided to try this!

We got it at Osh and we just hope to keep it alive through this year. It's a little smaller than we're used to, and it doesn't smell as wonderful as a cut tree, but how awesome that it's ALIVE!! This morning I woke up very worried that we'd made a weird decision and that it was too small, but hopefully, it will look good when it's decorated. We're going to decorate it tomorrow for Family Home Evening!

Tonight we lit our second Advent candle. We love this season and celebrating Jesus!
