Green branches at least a week or so longer... HOPEFULLY! We went to a real Christmas tree farm to cut down our tree this year ... only to learn that the furthest south they grow Fraser Firs is North Carolina ... so we bought a pre-cut tree and went back to cut down a tree for the boys (and ME!) I always wanted a kid tree - and we got one! Benjamin and I had a little date to the Christmas tree farm ... saw Santa, went on a wagon ride and cut down WHICHEVER tree we wanted!
We have been SO busy trying to get it decorated! We made a fruit loop chain, glitter star, jingle bell ornaments, snowmen with our pictures for the faces, tin-foil painted ornaments, wrapping paper ornaments, a navivity,tinsel, candy canes and tonight... cinnamon ornaments! We are planning to make a FEW more as well!
The boys tree in their playroom ... as decorated through tonight! (note: it is anchored by packaging tape in a pickle jar which is inside a glass bowl ... all weighted down with DIRT ... poor guy didn't and DOESN'T get any H2O ... we're investing in a stand after the holidays!)
So here are a few pictures of OUR tree... the boys at the tree farm (Benjamin PRETTY excited!):
