The Mesa Temple Christmas Lights

On December 18, Bret and I went to the Mesa Temple to see its Christmas lights with Brady and Sarah, our brother and sister-in-law. It was cold, but it was fun!
Before arriving, we weren't expecting much, just a few lights. But it turned out to be pretty cool. It was like a miniature Temple Square, except with fruit and palm trees. The temple did an awesome job decorating!

Bret's White Coat Ceremony

Bret's White Coat Ceremony turned out to be nice and short. It only lasted an hour and half which is a lot shorter than we thought. He officially has a white coat now!

Our First Christmas

When I told Bret I wanted a Christmas tree for our first Christmas together he half-jokingly rolled his eyes and said, "Oh boy, are you serious Bri?!" I told him of course and convinced him the tree would be an investment for years to come. It didn't need to be big and didn't need many decorations. It would just be something Christmasy to have in our home.

He finally agreed with me and we made our way to Target to buy our first Christmas decoration, a tree. After Target we came home and took it out of the box. We started spreading the branches out and eventually we both had a good time trying to set-it up.

Here are some pictures to describe how the set-up went:

At first Bret wasn't too happy.
I was maybe a little too excited. In the end we both ended up enjoying our first Christmas tree.
