OUR FIRST REAL CHRISTMAS TREE

NO COLD TOES OR HOT COCOA WHILE GETTING OUR REAL TREE



THERE'S ALREADY A PRESIE FOR SOMEONE
THERE ISN'T A CHIMNEY, SO JUST HUNG THEM AT THE WALL 

Finally is Friday! Friday is the day when I almost never cook dinner, because we either have dinner plans with someone, or I am too tired (lazy) to cook. Tonight, we are going to an end-of-a-the-year dinner with Gavin's futsbal friends, and someone else is cooking for us. We just need to bring drinks. Works for me :)
Since I will be 35 weeks on Christmas Eve, we are spending the holiday in our apartment, while the rest of the families are either in Chile or Mexico. Lucky buggers! Anyhow, we are trying to make the most out of the situation, so we decided to decorate the apartment for Christmas.
We hung Christmas lights all over the apartment, hung the stockings (even Baby MJ got one from his grandma, although he's not even born yet), put some Christmas music, and hung an advent calendar filled with chocolates for each day. For the Christmas tree we got some discussions with Gavin. Since I grew up in Chile, my Christmas was always hot, and we would put a fake tree, because there was no place to get a real one. But my good Canadian Gavin, always had a real one that they hand picked, and chopped at the tree farm. I was content on getting a fake one, and decorating it, but someone was opposed to that thought. Finally, Gavin found out that IKEA sold REAL Christmas trees, and at a reasonable price for being in a tropical country were no Christmas trees will ever grow.
So last Sunday, we took an uber and picked our first real christmas tree as a family of two (soon to be three).
Of course, Gavin did his tree inspection, and looked each tree for a few minutes, then the next one, and the next one, until I "helped" him a little with the decision.
PS: He was right, having a real tree at home is great. The apartment smells really good, and it is totally different than a fake one.
