Real or Fake?

Big or Little? Real or Fake?

Ahem….I’m talking about Christmas trees, not something else!

We’ve already purchased our Christmas tree. Yep, it isn’t even Thanksgiving and we brought it home this past weekend.

Throughout my life I've done real, fake, big and little.  Christmas trees that is. 

This will be our 3rd Christmas in this house and we’ve started a new Christmas Tree tradition. This will be our 3rd year getting a real potted Christmas tree.

The last two years we bought Austrian Pines, that are now planted out on our property and thriving. I’ll have to get pictures of them sometime. I’m not trudging out in the cold to do it now!

This year the Austrian Pines at Home Depot looked sadder than a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. So we opted for a Baby Blue Spruce. We’ll see how it survives when it gets planted in the spring.

And yes, we can’t fit all our holiday decorations on it. But I’m fine with it, I actually like it simple. We won’t decorate it till after Thanksgiving, even though the kids are begging me to do it everyday since we got the tree.

How do you Christmas Tree it? Enjoy!
