Christmas: Tree and Gifts
We got our tree yesterday. We usually cut our own and due to Tim's work schedule, this was causing a delay in getting our tree. So we decided to just go to a local lot and by a precut tree.
Kyle and Kamryn got to help put the netting on the tree
It's a beautiful 8 foot Frazier Fir. We had to trim about 6 inches off so we can put the star on top.
When we got home our mail had arrived! In the mail was the book I won from Lorrie. She included an unexpected gift - an apron!
Isn't it adorable? All red and hot cocoa and white trim! I wore it yesterday, but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to get it dirty! I LOVE IT! Thank you Lorrie!
Here is the book I won. Gladys Taber's, "Stillmeadow Calendar."
I took a peek at it and I can tell I'm going to love it! Thanks again Lorrie!
I got the lights on the tree yesterday and Sarah put the ribbons on, but that is as far as we got. Today we'll add the ornaments.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you my beautiful tree. I'm going slow this season and enjoying it so much.
So do you have your tree/trees up yet?
