Oh, Christmas Tree!

We got our Christmas tree yesterday from a local nursery. Joseph was a little (rein)deer in the headlights at 1st, totally not interested in the trees when there was dirt and rocks to get into.

This one was juuuuuust right!

Since it only took 5 minutes to find our tree, we had fun playing hide and seek with the really bigs ones and goofing around in the greenhouse with all the pointsettias.

Ready to go!

After squirreling away little bits of cash over the past year, I finally saved up enough to buy a fancy digital SLR camera - an early Christmas present to myself. So I practiced being all artsy-fartsy.

We had to trim quite a bit off the bottom to fit it into the stand, but it's the perfect height, just a few inches shy of the ceiling.

Now to find the time to decorate it....

How fun! I wish we would pick our own tree! As for decorations...we are setting a new trend of ornaments only on the top half..out of Brooks' reach!

Looked like a fun tree hunting adventure--and of course the perfect tree--Love the preview of what will be coming with the new camera----keep it coming Carl and don't forget the videos--love and hugs Mi Mi and Poppie
