Oh, Christmas Tree, oh, Christmas tree...

So, last night we went to get our tree! It is not as tall as the ones we have had in the past go Bradly boy got the idea of putting it on a box, so, yep, it is on a box of food storage... so, glad that our food storage has come in handy, °Ü° He cracks me up, he even found a piece of fabric to "cover the box" uh, honey.... it won't show anyway when I am finished!!! HAHAHA!

Anyway, we got it up, but I didn't get to decorate it due to Brad and the boys having to go to mutual last night. So, there is sits all naked waiting for lights and decorations! I hope they will climb up into the attack tonight and get me all the fun stuff to "dress" our tree!

NOT happy with my camera right now... look at how DARK the pictures turned out! NOT. HAPPY.

It looks like you guys had a great time getting you tree.
Look at the photos that you posted...Your husband is in two different places but with the same exact pose!(the way his head is tilted and arm is held.) Like he is saying "What are you doing taking another photo of me?" :)
Love it!!!!
Have fun dressing the tree!
Robin~♥

Can't wait to see the final results after you decorate! You have a beautiful home! Love the decore!

So we have the before shot of the tree- can't wait to see the 'after' shot once it is decorated. We've never done the live tree thing in this house. Maybe we should one year, it DOES look like a lot of fun to go and get the tree like that.

Enjoy!

It took a couple days for my hubby to get everything down out of the attick for me too... We just did it last night. I miss having a real tree, but they dry so fast. I worry about them catching on fire.
How's your dad doing?

What a purty tree and house is gorgeous! :)

We got ours on Monday and it is STILL sitting in the garage probably dying of thirst! I have NO idea when we are going to find the time to decorate the thing all togther. I fear I may end up doing it myself! Actually THAT would NEVER happen! I can't take the stress!

Can't wait to see the end result!

Very, very different from my boys playing in the snow. I dream of shorts--it takes me 30 minutes to get the kids in their snow gear!

That's what I love, a man that knows how to decorate with food storage.

I'm sorry to hear from your comment on my blog that things are a little tough right now. I hope things get better for you - better for everyone, but especially you because you're one of my favorite peoples.

Looks great Shaila! I am sure it will look wonderful when you have it all done, it always does! You have a great talent for design

linda said...

Hey, your one step ahead of me...we haven't even pulled our tree down from the rafters yet. Probably won't have the time until next week. I did put up my little kitchen tree today. At least I accomplished something today other than blogging!

We have been told we never know when we will need our food storage:-)
Your home is lovely! Your tree will be too and it will be doubly blessed because of the fun family activity of obtaining it... I love those memories!
Now we just go fake:D!

Rachel said...

Ooo, I love your tree corner! It's so pretty!

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL...cover that box with expensive gifts...that will teach him to get a short tree! And I'm laughing because I haven't heard the word "Mutual" since I was a kid going myself! It brought back happy memories.

Mechelle said...

Fun to go shopping for a Christmas tree in shorts!!!! So beautiful. m

Motherboard said...

It looks fun! Not to totally change the subject... but your windows are wicked cool! :>

Jan said...

That is such a cozy place to put it Shaila. I love it. I am so glad you got to go and get the tree with the family. It is never with the family around here. Just me and the hubs.

heather said...

That's fun. Christmas trees are so fun. And I look forward to seeing the "dressed" version! :)

And how do you make that cute smiley face?

Ashley said...

YAY for someone else who gets real Christmas trees! So many people get fake ones, but I love real ones. I can't wait to see it all decorated! When my pictures turn out dark like that I try editing them on the free software, Picasa. It's really easy and sometimes makes pictures look quite a bit better. You should try it out if you haven't!

MERRIANNE said...

I can't wait to see what it will look like when it is not naked :)

Tanja said...

I think the tree is going to be beautiful! Can't wait to see it decorated and your home is lovely!

wilma said...

I can't believe they have on shorts....buying a Christmas tree...brrrrrr it's cold in Texas.

Frumpy Luv said...

yay for Christmas trees - this looks like a lot of fun!!

Redhoodoos said...

Yeah - let's see the finished product!!

Hey, how are you doing?

Mechelle said...

HI!!! My email has gone out on me so I am sending you a note here.

I like a photo with a mat. But that is just me. I think it looks finished off in a professional type of way.

Leave me a comment on my blog when you decide what you want. I need to get the photo somehow. Maybe my email will be up and running by then. Thanks, m

Pedaling said...

Joneel said...

It's so funny to think that you met her on a whim. Fun Fun

Sher said...

Ha ha! WE both names our posts today the same thing! Great minds think alike! Your decorations looks amazing! I love that wall with all the clocks. Will you come over and teach me how to decorate my house? Seriously!
