Today was the day to put up my Christmas tree. I bought a tree from a local tree farm, Donovan's, in the silent auction at the Benton County Democrats holiday party last week. I've gotten my tree from Donovan's the last couple years, so when I saw it in the auction, I pounced. This afternoon I drove out there to pick out my tree. It's a 6 foot noble fir.
I had a moment of thinking it was too pretty a tree to spoil with decorations, maybe I'd just admire it au naturel for the next couple weeks.
After giving it a couple hours inside to dry off, I decorated it. Isn't it pretty?
And no, I haven't finished that tree skirt yet. It needs a few more rows, hopefully I'll finish it tomorrow.
