There. That was as close to a literarly blog post title as I could get.
So Christmas is nearly upon us – five more days. And I’m happy to say the dust is settling. NEARLY all the decorations made the cut this year and are festivizing the house with their good cheer. NEARLY all the presents are wrapped. NEARLY all the cooking/baking/crafting is done. And my unwritten Christmas cards are still stacked on the kitchen table. Oops. Sorry.
One thing that was super easy this year, thankfully, was our tree from Sears! Remember I told you we ordered our tree online a few weeks ago? Well, it took about 2-3 days to arrive. Came in a nice box and was pretty easy to trim and install into our tree holder. Easy-peasy.
It’s a bit “skinny” compared to the bushy trees we usually get when we cut our own, and at six feet, it’s a bit shorter too. For $89, I don’t think it’s a “bargain,” as far as Christmas trees go (we can cut our own for $30), but I’ll give it lots of points for being a perfectly shaped tree that has retained 99.9% of its needles over the last three weeks. AND it has a TON of strong branches for all our heavy ornaments! So, for the money I will say we got a quality tree, and no time wasted driving and searching for a tree!
And the final version…turned out very pretty I think!
What does your tree look like? Do you have a theme?
