oh christmas tree.

Sunday, December 18, 2011

I wonder how many carol named blog posts I can bang off before the December 25th cut off? Oh and speaking of Christmas tunes, I'm proud to report that Saige knows the words to 3 of my yuletide faves: Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and Jingle Bells... it's reason #1034 why I love that girl so very merry much.

So I've decided to jump on the old 'show me your Christmas tree' blogging bandwagon... drum roll please...

Maybe one year the 4 of us will get a tree cutting permit and venture into the forest with our axe and Sorels in search of a real pine smelling tree, but for now we're happy with our fake pre-lit spruce that requires no maintenance or watering. {I'm actually not sure it's a spruce, never was good with my conifers}.

The Bay gave us 50% off all holiday decor the year we got married {it's one of the perks of registering with HBC} and when I checked out their 2006 Christmas stock, I instantly fell in love with this pretty floor model - it was nature themed and had all my colours - SOLD. I told the salesperson to wrap it up and he literally disassembled the entire tree right before my eyes - the tree, the ribbon, the ornaments, the Santa topper - all mine at half price.


I've added a few new ornaments over the years and benched a few others, but all-in-all our tree has looked basically the same every Christmas since - i.love.it. I'm thinking this will be the last December our tree isn't adorned with tacky oh-so-special pre-school creations - popcorn garland, popsicle stick reindeer, construction paper snowflakes - but I'm gonna draw the line at tinsel.

When the Christmas tree is on at our house - which is pretty much 24/7 from Thanksgiving onward - all other lights are off... that's my rule. And so is, 'it's not coming down until Valentines so deal with it Mr. Knol'.

I love that it looks like Gabe is singing in a Christmas choir, "hark the hareld angels sing..."

There. I showed you mine, now you show me yours... {decorated Christmas tree that is}.
