|At the tree farm!|
We kept the tradition going this year and went to Boyd Mountain Tree Farm in Waynesville again. They have quite the little (and by little, I mean HUGE) production going on there!
You strike out across their vast mountainside to the area that has the size of tree you're looking for - say 6 to 7 feet, or 8 feet+. Then you hunt down the perfect tree that will dazzle your guests and shine in your holiday pictures.
|This is it! For real this time. [I look so tall!]|
|Hang on tight, tree!|
Because I wasn't feeling great the first several days we had our tree, it just stood there, naked, in our living room for a few days before I got up the strength to decorate it. Then I slowly added lights, then the topper, then the burlap, and eventually the skirt and ornaments.
So ta-da: here is our 2012 Christmas Tree! I love how it turned out this year! The addition of burlap is new, and I love how it looks. We also have a second tree upstairs that has all of our "fun" ornaments on it - pictures to come!
|Oh Christmas tree...|
