This last Saturday, Mario & I went with Mom & Dad up to Shaver Lake to get our very first Christmas tree as a happily married couple :) These trees are definitely not my favorite, but at $3 a foot, it's kind of a hard price to beat. As you can see from the pics, the sun was out & it was so pretty. It was warmer up there than it was in Fresno, and there was no fog! Mom & Mario got some hot cocoa from Bob's Espresso :)
And the winner is this 7 footer. I'm fully convinced we picked the best tree they had. Not the fullest tree by far, but it'll do.
After that we stopped by the lake to check it out. It's kinda hard to tell, but the water is so low. I've never seen it like that before :( And since Dad "doesn't do pictures" here's mom by herself. Very cute :)Here's the final product. I don't know if it's just me, but I couldn't seem to get a clear picture of the tree with lights on, but a blurry pic is better than a focused one without the lights on. We went red, black & silver on the tree. Mar turned on the Christmas music while we decorated, such good times, I love being married to him.Lastly, I really wish this would have turned out, but this is our first ornament! It's a 3 tiered wedding cake that says "2008, Mr. and Mrs., Has a nice ring to it". Inside it has two interlocked rings hanging from it (you can kinda see in the pic), and on the back it says, "First Christmas Together."
I can already tell, this Christmas is gonna be awesome :)
