Today is Day 11 of Susan’s 25 day photo challenge and it’s supposed to be a photo of Ribbons & Bows.
Well, since I have nothing wrapped yet, the location to put them under when they are wrapped will have to do.
Day 3 was “The Christmas Tree” which I didn’t have up at that point so I’ll share it now.
The last few years we haven’t put a big tree up. We have been gone over Christmas which pushed our family Christmas to Thanksgiving weekend, so I just never got that far into the decorating. As a child growing up we always had a real tree. We kept that tradition up with our boys until they got older and too busy to help with or care about cutting down a tree for Christmas. About ten years ago I bought an artificial tree for those same reasons. I don’t know what I was thinking! You can remove the girl from the traditions but you can’t take the traditions out of the girl!
This year, we decided it was time for a real tree again, so DH (so NOT Mr. Christmas), agreed to go along for the ride, so to speak.
Today was a beautiful day to be out wandering around a tree farm it was! Notice, no snow on the ground for us yet. I, for one, am perfectly happy with that!
Putting on a happy face for me…
instead of his typical Ebenezer look.
This is really why I brought him along. Somebody has to do the dirty and lay on the ground to work the saw. Shhh! don’t tell him tho. All joking aside, it was a great time together.
and hours later, presenting Christmas Tree 2011.
