Our Christmas tree

I’m usually too lazy to get the tripod out when I take pictures, but I drug it out last night like a responsible picture-taking person.

I know it looks a bit like I slapped a filter on it, but that’s actually straight out of the camera. Whee!

This is our second Christmas with wood floors instead of carpet, and I gotta say, I really dig the way the light reflects off the floors.

Carpet just doesn’t have quite the same effect.

In case the wonky top didn’t tip you off…this is a real tree. 😉 I haven’t had the motivation to put the topper on, and also we have no garland because last year ours fell apart (it served us for 19 years!) and I haven’t found any replacement garland I like.

So, it’s an imperfect tree. But I think it’s beautiful anyway.

Very pretty! I love the look and smell of a real tree - we treat ourselves to one every year. Maybe not frugal, but so beautiful and tree farming and recycling (as opposed to tossing plastic and metal trees in a landfill) will always be a better choice to me!

One of my favorite childhood memories is of decorating the tree each year. We always did a real tree, and sometimes we'd even cut one ourselves.

Hubby wanted a fake tree this year, and I put my foot down (nicely, of course). We don' always have a tree, but when we do, it's a real one :)

Maybe this is the year of the wonky tree. Mine is 9 ft tall and has no shape. It is wide but straight up and down. It may be the worse tree we have ever had. I hope to get lights on it tomorrow and well, It may not get decorated. That's OK too. It's pretty much for me so I like the lights anyway. meds have me wonky too so forgive the crooked typing.

Forget the garland. Less is definitely more
