Can you guess what tree won out? Faux or fir real?
Saturday was a cloudy day but quite warmer than usual for around these parts.
After an early morning visit with Santa, it was off to the woods we go! Addison waiting ever so patiently in line for her turn.
Let me just say that little 2 year old Addison had no intentions of sitting on his lap! She did finally agree to the chair and even smiled, but lest not let him get too close was her motto.
We have numerous cut your own tree farms within a few mile radius of us. First things first, check out the variety we want this year.
We decided on a Balsam Fir. Frasier Fir hold there needles really well and are considered the Cadillac of Christmas trees. However Balsam have a stronger scent, also hold there needles fairly well and I wanted a really fat tree. The Frasier were just not that full this year.
Next step, stand still and smile for the picture with the tree we have chosen and then....
pat Grandpa on the head while he tries to cut down our tree with a rather dull saw!
My hubby may be the most patient Grandpa ever.
Then it was off to check out our little towns Christ kindle celebration. Every time I tried to take a pic of this camel and Addison he would move his head rather quickly back and forth. He really did not want his pic taken.
Our small town parade wasn't too much but seemed to make a little 2 year old happy! Then on Sunday, I spent most of the day decorating our 7.5 ft. chubby balsam fir. Did I mention that she only cost $25!! Trees are abundant and cheap around here.
Thanks for stopping by, I so appreciate your visits!
