Let the decorating begin! We didn't have much, but we did have in my opinion the most important part of the Christmas tree...Bubble Lights!!! They are a family tradition on my mom's side that I am honored to be able to continue with my children!
I will never forget the year that my dad bought my mom Bubble Lights and put them on the tree without her knowing... when she saw them she burst into tears! It was perfect! I'm crying just thinking about that moment.
More pictures to come from this year of these babies!
Let me preface this one with...I have two of the sweetest, mushiest, boys in my life and I love them to the moon and back! Ryan purchased a little bunch of Mistletoe and it multiplied rapidly! Before we knew it there were little green and red hand drawn mistletoes hanging above every door, over the couch and poor Ryan and I had to kiss all the time! Shucks! We turned it into whomever was under the mistletoe either had to kiss (Ryan and I) or have a huge tickle fight (for Jared)!! It is a perfect memory!
There's our little bunch!
That evening we walked down to Little Italy for a tree lighting! Well, the tree lighting was pretty lame, but the FAKE SNOW was AMAZING!!! There is nothing like snow to make a northerner feel the season! Thank you San Diego for bringing a little bit of home to me! And seeing Jared dance around like a crazy little monster was precious!
He's got moves alright!
There's my day of first - first Christmas in San Diego, first Christmas away from home, first time killing a tree for display, first bubble lights of my very own, first fake snow outside experience and first kiss under the mistletoe!
