Our tree

Greg and I went to Lowe's yesterday and picked out our tree. Every year we seem to get it earlier than the year before, yet every year the selection gets worse. I was actually kind of shocked to see how many trees there were laying around that had large brown, dead patches on them. We did find a tree we liked and now we hope it'll make it until Christmas.
Gestern frueh sind Greg und ich in den Baumarkt gefahren um unseren Christbaum zu kaufen. Jedes Jahr ziehen wir frueher los und trotzdem wird die Auswahl von Jahr zu Jahr schlechter. Ich war echt schockiert zu sehen, dass ganz viele Baeume schon grosse braune, total vertrocknete Zweige hatten. Nach langem Suchen wurden wir doch fuendig, und nun hoffen wir das der Baum bis Weihnachten haelt.


  1. Your tree is beautiful! Honestly, the lack of beautiful real trees in years past is one of the things that keeps me tied to our fake one. As much as I love the real tree smell, it's so hard to find one that's really lovely!

  2. I love your tree. It looks lush, full and beautifully decorated. Nothing can take the place of a real tree and that fresh scent in the home. Happy Holidays!

  3. Your tree is absolutely gorgeous; I love it! AND look…you have prezzies under the tree already!

  4. Well you picked a beautiful one, and it's lovely decorated :)
