To go with my blue Christmas theme I had planned on using Silver Belle again this year, but I could not find the color wheel. I had planned on getting a small real tree so instead opted to get a slightly bigger one to use.
We decided to go to Lee's Christmas Tree Farm. It is literally across the interstate from our apartment complex.
We went on December 1
The girl explained to us about the farm. They have 3 kinds -- white pine which is super soft, but has weak branches, Austrian pine which has long pointy needles and stronger branches and Scotch pine which has short branches and needles. The trees with yellow ribbons were reserved
The girl said she would follow behind and if we wanted more privacy she could walk further behind. We walked with her and talked to her the whole time :)
The "perfect" tree. It is an Austrian Pine
TJ opted to cut it down himself
Loaded into the truck.
We went to True Value and bought some pretty blue lights for him
I named him Skinny Pete and decorated him
Next year I am getting a white pine. As awesome as this one looks the needles were sharp
Do you have a tree yet? Real or Fake? Size? Color? Lights?
