The day after we got home from Las Vegas, we went out to get our Christmas Tree! I couldn’t wait any longer, I am pumped for the holidays!! We took our sleigh over to Home Depot to pick out our tree!
With Adele’s approval, we picked out the perfect tree!
HAHAHA Where’s the baby?
We usually go with the least expensive kind, the ones with the long, messy needles. But this year, I wanted something different, so we upgraded to the Noble Fir. When we got home, we realized the trunk was actually too thick for our stand (and our stand is industrial because after “The Great Christmas Tree Disaster of 2006“, we don’t mess around). Somehow, we got it wedged in enough to stand up straight, but the trunk doesn’t reach the water reservoir, so we’ll see how long it lasts. So far, no needles have fallen though!
We set it up after Adele went to bed and when she woke up the next morning, she was SO excited. So far, she’s been good about looking with our eyes and not with our hands. =)
Her favorite ornament is a random duck that we have. She found it on the tree right away and quacks at it every time she sees the tree!
Our newest ornament is the one we got in Zion!
I’m loving our Ikea “Dr. Suess” style Christmas Star too!
How fun that Adele is old enough to get into the spirit this year! Cute duck ornament 🙂
