Christmas 2011 Advent Calendar - Day 8

For your viewing pleasure - A Christmas Tree!

We finally finished decorating the tree last night.  Now we just need to finish up with the rest of the decorations and get the boxes out of the house and back into the shed.  It's prettier in person than it is in this picture (sorry for the quality, I took it on my phone).

As always we tromped around the local tree farm for over an hour before we could finally agree on which tree was the best.  Most were much too large for our little living room (I sometimes dream of having a living room with high vaulted ceilings!).   

Have you finished your holiday decorating yet?  I still have to put up the Nativity Scenes on the piano (yes, we have multiples!) and finish some of the table top decorations and then we'll be done!  Hooray!


  1. Its a lovely tree, I love the ribbon on it. Its too bad I can't have a real tree due to allergies or ribbon due to a naughty kitty :P

    I am just about done decorating, just one more room to go.

  2. @~Ang Thanks! I understand about the naughty kitty - I've been very thankful over the years that Weber, my little Quaker parrot, has always been too terrified of the tree (or any decorations, really) to go anywhere near them!!

  3. Wow, the tree is gorgeous! I'm jealous I'll be only able to put up a little fake one on top of a cabinet.
