Christmas is by far Brian's favorite holiday so we had to look at every tree available until we found the best tree. We walked up and down the roads over and over again inspecting every tree. I actually thought we found the one we would take home and I took a picture.
But then we walked away and couldn't find it again! Further down the rows and rows we finally found the one - the one that would fit in my car and in our house!
The man working at the nursery kindly loaded it into my car and tied down the trunk and we headed home. Once home, we quickly cleaned up the living room to make room for our first Christmas tree!
And that is as far as we got! We don't even have any lights yet to put on the tree. When we went to Target later that night, they were OUT of colored Christmas lights! So we are just going to have to wait until another shipment comes in.
Don't worry little tree - we promise to decorate you very soon!
My family has had a fake tree for years, so this was a change to have a real one in the house. I am kind of excited about it but I am not excited about all the pine needles falling on the ground.
If you celebrate Christmas, which do you have? Fake or Real??
