Oh Christmas Tree

I have always loved real Christmas trees but never wanted to fool with the extra work that comes with it.  However, I was a little tired of the same old tree and decided to change things up a little at the Harrison house this year.  So, I bit the bullet and went for a real Christmas tree!




 

Last weekend, we headed out to our local Christmas tree farm.  It is just a few minutes from our house and they have tons of trees to choose from plus some fun little activities for the kids as well.  We went early and loaded up on the little sleigh that took us out to the fields so we could pick out our tree.  After lots of browsing and measuring and discussing, we finally found our perfect tree.  Dad sawed it for a minute (mainly so I could get this lovely photo opp) before we called in the chainsaws to bring it on down.  It was fun watching the guys “shake” it and wrap it and load it into the back of the truck.  Not going to lie though, a little piece of me wishes I had taken my car so we could have strapped it on top.


 


When we got home, we set up in in the living room and got to decorating.  I really wanted the big bulbed colored lights and Hadley has been pretty adamant about having a star on top so we went a little retro with it all.  We just put on our favorite ornaments that we have collected over the years and so it is pretty simple but I totally love it!  I may even add a few strands of popcorn garland if I really get festive


I finished putting up my Snow Village and put a little more decor in the girls rooms and around the house.  And after a few trips to Lowes, I finally got the outside stuff up as well.  We are officially set for Christmas at our home!
