Christmas 2012–1st Real Tree

We decided to get a real tree this year.  It’s our first as a family (I have been married 16 yrs).  We loaded up Izzy and headed out in our comfy clothes.

The Boy Scouts sell them every year and we were told by many that they are the place for getting a real tree.

We spotted our tree in less than 2 minutes.

Even though there were tons of trees in the greenhouses and outdoors. 

They wrapped our tree to make it easier to get it home.

A few bottom branches were removed.

And my husband trimmed the end off the tree to allow the water to soak into it.  It saps over when it gets dry.

Then we headed home and Izzy got to poke her head out the window and enjoy the pretty day.

We unloaded it and set it up.

Our fake tree is prelit with white lights which I love.  My son and husband have always liked colored lights better.  This year we went with colored lights to go with our real tree.  Might as well make changes all the way around.  AND….I let David decorated it.  Actually I just didn’t to do it so he did.  I will take pics of it later, but for now I got one that just shows the bokeh of the colored lights.

Are you doing anything new this year for Christmas?
