This weekend, after the parade, we decided to go get a Christmas Tree. This may be confusing to some of you who have figured out I'm Jewish. Rest assured, you are correct. The Husband, however, is not. He was raised Lutheran; therefore, he celebrates Christmas. I don't mind adding another celebration to my year, so we celebrate in our own way.
Our house has 9' ceilings, and our living room has vaulted ceilings. This is great because we were able to get a really big tree this year. Usually, we get a 5-6 foot tree. This year, we went 8-9 feet...and let me tell you - it is a BEAUTIFUL tree. It looks kind of crooked in the photos but it really isn't that lopsided in real life.To give a better idea of the size, here are some photos of the kids decorating.
Of course, for the full effect, the tree must be lit. There is nothing prettier than a lit Christmas Tree.
