We picked out our 2011 Christmas tree today… amongst a pretty decent downpour (sorry, no photos of the picking – my camera was not coming out in that mess). Our tree stood out to us right away. Our only concern was the height/width of the tree compared to the height/width of the area we wanted to place it in our home.
Let me just say – thank goodness for our vaulted ceilings, as our tree is about 9 feet tall! Yeah… we feel a little like the Griswold’s. But isn’t it lovely?
[PS – did you notice how I ran out of lights for our tree? This year we needed 3 additional sets of Christmas lights. Unfortunately, the hubs only bought two extra sets when he made the emergency run to the store. Also, the tree is not fully decked out yet… we had to let the poor thing dry out quite a bit before bringing it into our home. The plan is to finish decorating tomorrow.]
