It is the weekend after thanksgiving and that means one thing: IT IS TIME FOR US TO GET A CHRISTMAS TREE!
I do not like picking them out; it takes too long. When we get it in the house I am usually sneezing my head off. I don't particularly love Christmas lights. No one ever agrees with me on how it should be decorated. But wait, before you mark me off as a Scrooge, let me defend myself. Despite all my dislikes, I ADORE HAVING A TREE IN THE HOUSE AT CHRISTMAS TIME. I love pine trees. I would be totally be okay with having one in my house ALL the time (we get ours the weekend after thanksgiving and then keep it around as long as possible. Last year we kept it until February. Then it lived on our deck for another 2 months...). Were there a way to plant a forest in my bedroom, I'd do it. Trees are one of the coolest things that God created and pine trees for sure are at the top of the cool trees list. So I am excited to pick out a tree, saw it down, and bring it into our house again. Love it.

This makes me want to get a plaid blanket and drink hot cocoa. And I don't even LIKE hot cocoa.
Trees always look best outside but...inside is nice too.
This has got to be one of the most magical things I have ever seen! I don't even understand how this was done but it is GREAT!
*okay, I DO NOT like artificial trees, especially when they are so far from looking like real trees, but what I do like about this picture is...you guess. THE BULBS ARE IN RAINBOW ORDER!!!

Don't worry. Pictures of our tree to come! Maybe it won't look this magical but I will still feel happy inside (and sneezey in my nose).
