O Christmas Tree!

This year we didn't get a big Christmas tree. We didn't even bring down our ornaments or decorate much of anything actually. With John being weak and unable to lift heavy things, there was no way I was going to be able to bring all the boxes down from our high storage units by myself. So we were going to make do without a Christmas tree this year.

But... it's not Christmas without a tree!!!

So I went to Lowes and bought a little blue spruce tree that you can plant in the yard! It was very cute :)

Here it is all decorated for Christmas. John and I had fun making paper origami cranes to hang on it along with the dollar store box 'o ornaments :)

Our Charlie Brown Christmas tree!

I think it came out looking pretty good for a last minute purchase! I finally got around to planting it this past weekend.

Can you see it?

Let me help - here's a closeup:

It's soooo tiny! I think it may only 2 feet tall.

I hope it actually grows :)

Bailey and Hurley were very excited at the prospect of digging in the dirt. Here they are waiting patiently (yeah right!) for me to hook them up to their leashes.

I tied them up to a tree near where I was working and they did surprisingly well!

Here's Hurley at full alert:


Have a great day!

PS - I finished my Koolhaas hat - but I still need to take pictures. I LOVE it!!!

Post an update on the size of the tree when Arbor Day comes in April (or you can wait until May to do it)

Bobby planted a spruce tree in my back yard just after we met ten years ago. It's now probably over 12 feet. Make sure to buy lights for it!
