Keith and I had a delima.
He has always grown up with a Fake christmas tree and I have always had a real one. The only time we ALMOST had a fake one .. my dad was sent back to the store to return this “fake” tree and had to go get us a real tree the next day!
So, when it came to talk of Christmas and what kind of tree we were going to get i was worried. I love the smell and look of real trees. Keith like the ease and simplicity of fake trees. So you can see the dilemma we were having. But Keith being so sweet and loving me lots decided on doing a real tree this year!
Since we are living in Porterdale we are right next to a tree farm. Berry’s Tree Farm ( which is acutally owned some one of Keith’s relatives… you know one of those relatives that you are related SOMEWHERE down the line, but not really sure where.
So last night around 5 we headed down the road to gooood ol Berry’s.
We arrived and it was starting to get dark so we quickly had to find the perfect tree for us.
Berry’s is great because you get to cut the tree down yourself.
we debated on which tree would be right for us!
Keith said “ This is too small”
Then …. after a little bit longer of looking… we found it!
We got straight to chopping… sawing it down!
Once we got home we tried to set the tree up… but we were having issues with our metal tree stand. After 2 hours of trying to get it up we finally decided to go to walmart to get a bigger plastic one… within 2 min of putting the new one of we had the tree up.
( old and destroyed stand)
new really easy to use walmart stand!
NOW PRESENTING.. OUR 1ST CHRISTMAS TREE!!!
