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 :)
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!!!
