Oh Christmas Tree…

Christmas Tree 037

This past week we got our Christmas tree! Somehow, we never fail to make getting a tree an ordeal of sorts. I wasn’t sure how we were going to pull of getting a “real” Christmas tree here but Micah was determined and it wasn’t as difficult as we thought. We went to three tree nurseries to find a tree “as big as Micah” after being shown many pine trees that were 5 inches tall. The third nursery was a charm and for $4 we drove away with our very own tree!

While most trees are dying, ours is growing in our living room, waiting to be planted in our yard 🙂  xmas 002xmas 001

We bought Christmas lights at the local store and popped some popcorn to decorate our tree. We then tore pieces of aluminum foil to make tinsel! We love our little tree and have had fun decorating it! Christmas Tree 036Our favorite is the tin foil star on top. Christmas Tree 035

We are getting in the Christmas spirit around here and were able to borrow Christmas cookie cutters. Christmas Tree 030Christmas Tree 031We made a night of making and frosting cookies, and eating a few too 🙂 Christmas Tree 032Christmas Tree 034
