Batman and I had decided to forgoe buying a real tree this year (in order to add funds to the ever needy "fix my car" fund) and instead borrow a fake one from my ILs.
Well, last night I walked into my home and smelled the most wonderful scent- Christmas. (You know, the smell of a fresh cut tree? That says Christmas to me) I didn't think much of it, thinking it was maybe something from outside or maybe (our neighbor had just come over) from the wreath on our door.
And then I walked into the living room and saw this:
I almost cried (chalk another one up to the crazy hormones). It was THE best surprise I think I have ever gotten! (Except for maybe last week when I got home and Batman had put up our outside lights... that was pretty nice too)
He then showed me this:
He already put all the lights on it for me :)
Turns out my MIL felt so bad for us that she took Batman to get a real tree after he got off work yesterday and insisted on having it up with lights on it before I got home. She is really the sweetest woman alive. I think I know where Batman gets it!
Tonight we are putting on all the ornaments after I get home from loving on this guy I can't wait!!
