But I do have to say I was disappointed in the tree species...Now I know I am picky...I like sparse trees with simple lines...I like ornaments to have plenty of space to hang...I LOVE silvertips...I settled last year and still loved my tree...this year we settled too...we will see how I feel when its decorated...I'm sure I will love it too! Next year though I am holding out for the silvertip...although they are about 3 times as much!
But the day was so much fun! We hung out with Beth and Josh and most of Josh's family, and David and Pam came too!
MJ looks like a porcelain doll from a different era...
Such a cutie!
Here it is folks! Our tree...It's big...in fact Tom had to cut about a third of it off to fit in our 12' ceiling...but I liked how graceful the branches looked...we saw it on our way out, as I had given up finding "my" tree...I had seen a few I really liked...but they were specimen trees...I think one was 90 dollars...YIKES! No thanks...this one was 1/4 of that!
Proof that Tom really cut it! I tried to circle him in the photo but there is so much greenery I still can barely see him! We have so much greenery left from the bottom of the tree I am going to have to get going making some swags and stuff for decoration!
