Christmas Tree Adventures

Christmas Tree Adventures

It's that time of year again!  Yes!  I love decorating for the holidays and growing up with artificial trees I never knew how much better it is with a real tree.  Last year Mark insisted we get a real tree and all I thought was bugs, water spilling onto my new hardwood flooring, kids having allergies.  We don't even have a pick up truck!

I was in for a big surprise!! 

We went to a little stand on the side of the road... all five of us in a Nissan Maxima.  The workers tied it onto the roof and off we went!  Got home and set it up.  You need a special stand that can hold some water.  It took some adjusting to make sure the tree looked as straight as we could.  

The smell of the tree was really great and the kids were amazed that there was an actual tree in our house.  My fears were so silly after all! Nothing better than having a new tradition so that my kids can pass it on to their families.
