Oh Christmas Tree~

My Home Sweet Home is filled with the sweet smell of our fresh Fraser Fir Christmas Tree~it smells so good! I am going to confess that I have not put up a real Christmas tree in several years. So I decided this year we would go back to the tree farm and chop one down. I grabbed Subway sandwiches and eggnog to have waiting upon our return. We were going to have the perfect tree trimming evening! We headed to our tree farm to find it absolutely treeless. It appears that while I was celebrating with my Hobby Lobby tree that our tree farm closed. I frantically called around to find only one other farm but it was closed until the weekend. I then decided we would at least go to a picture perfect stand that looks like something off a Christmas movie. I found one I liked but it was $60.00. So~ we went on to Lowes. They looked horrible. By now this is the movie we were in~
It was freezing and my toes were frozen. It wasn't my picture perfect moment. However my children were having a great time laughing about my expectations and laughing at me! All the trees were mashed and looked like Charlie Brown's tree. My husband suggested we get out our artificial tree once again this year but I was determined to not go home without our tree. Walmart had all their trees bound up so it was going to be my last choice with a grab bag approach but at least they were on clearance!
Finally~ We found the perfect tree at none other than Home Depot. Although it was not my picture perfect moment we had a fun time. When we returned home we were greeted by a plate full of Christmas goodies from our thoughtful neighbors~thanks Jill. We enjoyed the evening and each other's company. It was great for our tree trimming evening. We truly did find the perfect tree!
