This is not only a first tree for Noah, but also for Chris and I. I don't think we've ever had our own Christmas tree before. We're always headed out of town and haven't had the incentive. This year though, I was surprised by how excited I got as soon as we turned on the lights on our little tree. I've never liked Christmas in Tucson. I think that was why. A little tree in the living room makes it feel a like real holiday season (despite the lack of snow).
