We got our tree at the same spot we did last year. A church parking lot. In the rain. The people are friendly. The trees are pretty. The price is right. $40. Yes, thank you, I'll take one.
In comes the tree. Off comes the end. In goes the tree into the stand. Out comes the water all over the floor. So out comes the tree. Off comes the top of a pail. In goes the pail. In goes the water. And the water stays and stays. The next day, out comes the tree. Out comes the drill. And holes are made in the trunk. In goes the tree. Out goes the water - into the tree. And finally we can decorate!
Andrew and Mr. Man put all the lights on the tree. I like white lights. The kids like colour. I gave in a couple of years ago. After the light, comes the fun. the ornaments.
Even puppy came to help.
The ornaments have been collected over the years. Nothing matches. There is no theme. We like it that way. Every ornament was either made or given to us.
I'm linking up to the Thrifty Decor Chic. Go check out all the other trees.
