The tree is up!!!
We went and got our tree today! I picked a different kind this year. I am usually a Fraser Fir girl and decided that I wanted to be different! So, we got a Concolor (white fir) this year!! It is so pretty! It's got a whitish color to it's needles and has a citrus pine scent . . . mmmmmmmm!!!
Chris put on the lights and the kids and I decorated it. I love how the lights really make it look white in the pics! I have to get pine roping yet tomorrow to finish our mantle. I need to pick up some fake snow for my village set too. The candles for the windows are somewhere up in the attic, so I'll need to brave that yet tonight!
We rearranged the furniture this year so we could put the tree right in front of the window. In our 7 1/2 years here, we've always put it to either side of the fireplace. But, I love seeing a full view of Christmas trees in the windows from outside and I wanted us to have that this year!! It looks a little funny since we're not used to it, but with the tree, it looks beautiful!!
I will be posting some new layouts this week sometime too!!
Thanks for reading!
