Our Christmas Tree~

This year was something a little different for my kids. Rather than going to a tree farm to cut down our Christmas tree which had been our tradition for the past several years in Massachusetts, we went to a local nursery/Christmas tree lot to purchase our tree. (Seeing as how there are no tree farms anywhere near us here in Utah.) I don't think my kids realized you could just go and purchase a tree already cut. But they had a great time at the cute little lot. And we picked out a lovely tree.


Here's my little family with our tree. Forgive the sunflare on this photo...it was taken with my cell phone...and apparently, Mr. Three thought that being in this photo was not a good idea. So he was hiding in the car.


And here they are with the tree all tied to the top of the car ready to go...


Once we got our pretty tree home (it was seriously one of the most symmetrical trees I've ever seen) we had fun decorating. The kids actually did much of the decorating, and I think they did a great job! I only pulled out the silver and white ornaments for them to put on the tree...with the exception of a couple of special ornaments that the kids made and the dried oranges which they insisted we put up. Any other ornaments that the kids couldn't live without were placed on their own little tabletop trees that are in each of their bedrooms (I'll have to post about them later.)


So, after that lengthy explanation, I present to you approximately 20394203579 photos of our 2010 Christmas tree!

(I couldn't narrow it down. I'm nothing if not decisive.)

















I'm linking up to the Christmas Tree Party at Thrifty Decor Chick.

Have a great day~

I love your tree!

What I noticed were your wreaths hanging on your outside windows! Sigh... we used to do that when we lived in Virginia, we had a federal farmhouse and hung one in front of each window {9 in total}. Now that we are living in western Canada where our windows open different I have no way of hanging up the wreaths, not to mention our monsoon rains would sweep them away!

How beautiful!!! So pretty and white. Love the silhouettes! Plus, it's nice to see the behind-the-scenes of your life. Sweet. :)

I just love the vision around town with people out and about with trees on the tops of their cars. One of my favorite Christmas sights!

Beautiful tree! We cut ours down every year.
Do you have any tips on how you got such fabulous pictures of your tree? Our tree is in front of windows too and I'm having a lot of trouble.
