oh christmas tree

we got our christmas tree last night. anthony was adamant about not spending more than $40.00. I'm so glad I cooperated. I was worried we would wind up with too small a tree. turns out starkies in farmingdale has a whole bunch of $40.00 trees! here's a tip, they all look smaller outside than they do inside. this year we used ian as our yard stick and it worked! sort of. the tree we now have in our livingroom is gigantic - and it was only 40 bucks.

Love the scent of a fresh Christmas tree!
I can imagine that your tree is gorgeous.
Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. :)

Way to bring the outside inside.

Beautiful and well-shaped, too. Let's see it decorated!

Does that mean Ian is gigantic, too?
I just realized I forgot to plug in my tree lights today. It is "my tree" because Dick is Jewish and the dog doesn't care about anything except food.
I envy you the smell of a cut tree. Little gold trees that come in and out of plastic bags every December don't really "cut it"!
All the best of the season to you and yours,

I want to see it all decorated too. Mine is up (i.e., out of its storage box) as well. I don't miss having to water it or worry about it while I'm away—but I sure do miss that fragrance!

Well done Lily!
My son in Huntington got one from Halesite Fire Dept
then decided it was too small
sold it to his inlays and
bought a GIANT one!

Merry Christmas

Forty bucks? Seems like yesterday that typical tree cost $15. Where has the time gone? No doubt your kids will treasure memories of the lights and the pine smell.
