This past weekend we decided to get our house decorated for the Christmas season annnd to get our first live Christmas tree! So I was thinking we would get some small little bush since Christmas trees are kinda pricey, but Matt had other plans. I think it must have been because my dad was there with my mom he felt like he needed to step up to the plate. Matt and my dad paced the different trees sizing them up, scoffing at the "little" trees (the 5 to 6 footers) and finally deciding that the 7 to 8 footers were the way to go. After digging through some selections we finally found the one. We love it, its a grand fur, it's big and fluffy and it smells divine! After purchasing "tilt" as we have since dubbed it, due to the fact that we can't get it to stand up straight, we had to buy a ton more ornaments that we can't put on because it leans dangerously to one side. Oh well, we have lights on it and it looks lovely in our glorified hallway! It was a fun time and I learned a something new, the size of the tree does matter!
