Bringing Home a Tree


Two weeks before Christmas is usually when we put up our Christmas tree. Today we went to our local tree lot and picked out a tree. At first we were contemplating a small tree, much smaller than usual. Then we saw another one, not as large as many trees we've had in the past, but it fits our space perfectly. Here it is on top of our Christmas-green Element.

We brought the girls with us; they enjoyed sniffing the garland.

Here is the tree before being decorated. The tree skirt I found at Home Goods last year after what seemed like an eternity of searching for one that didn't cost a fortune. I like the color, the quilting and the little beads all around the edge. The house is already starting to smell like pine -- such a beautiful scent!


Now it's time to decorate while enjoying some egg nog and listening to Christmas music on Pandora. It's a wonderful time of the year, isn't it?

  4. What a pretty and perfectly shaped tree. I can just imagine how nice it smells. We didn't do one this year as we just left town to visit family for rhe holidays. I was tempted though when one of my girls asked if Santa was going to bring her a Christmas tree.
