Every year I feel the same anticipation on this big day...
Day 8 : GET A TREE.
We go to this tree farm that isn't really a tree farm, but is adorable (so adorable they don't even have a website) and family-owned and HAS SHEEP.
Zoo and I didn't participate in the actual picking, because someone was sick... in the car... on the way there... so sick that I had to strip most of her clothes off, but even without our extremely particular opinions, the rest of the gang picked out a great tree.
We have a cast iron tree stand and it's amazing. We got it for our first Christmas together from my in-laws and every year we stand the tree up and use several expletives about how great it is.
Notice today's activity wasn't "Get and decorate a tree". We are spreading out the fun.
What's your stand on trees? Fake or real? Store or farm? What are your favorite decorations?
