Christmas Tree & A Blog Hop

How was your weekend?! 
Our's was pretty awesome but super busy!
Saturday I went to a Christmas Fair!
It's small Christmassy things like this that really get me in the Christmas spirit!
So thankful for an international community here that puts these things on!
Speaking of Christmas, the weekend after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree!
We were super blessed to have this tree! It's difficult to find trees in China.
Our friends Justin and Catherine, found this tree in the teacher's room in Dongying and used it last year, so they passed it on to us! It's like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants tree.

Zachary's stocking! I have a matching red one. Zachary's mother sent them to us while we were living in Korea. 
We pulled out all the ornaments! I love setting them all out to see what we have!
This is also one of my favorite things to do after shopping, laying every thing out to look over my finds!
Final product! It looks smaller here than it does in person. (at least I think so) 
We don't have any lights on it yet! We might skip those this year. Is that lame?
I love this globe ornament.
It's very accurate. Ha! There's a ginormous lake in the middle of the U.S. in Canada. 
It's not the Great Lakes anymore people. It's the Ginormous Lakes. 
We ALWAYS have a Starbucks ornament on our tree!
We even have a baby tree for the dining room table.
With our tree came half of another tree. Zachary clipped off the branches and formed them into a wreath for me! 
We left out three of these creepy angel ornaments.
Chara liked it though.
