Home Grown...

Tah-Dah!
This is our first Christmas Tree that we've had since
we had our little boy
(5 years ago)!
Our little one bedroom was way too small
to jam a tree in there the past five years,
so we always got a table-topper tree from
Trader Joes...
the one that is about 8 inches high?....
you know the ones...
Well...
This is the one we got when Simon was a baby!

This is Pops, Simon's grandpa.

He planted it in his yard...

and boy, did it grow!!

Soooo...
my manly hubby took an electric saw and cut it down last night!
Our first Christmas tree as a family!
He pruned it and...

trimmed it...
then we took it home....

and decorated it...
We love it!
It's SUPER spindly-looking,
and is missing the back half
(the tree was growing against a wall, so it's literally half of a tree-
there are no branches on the other side!)
It works just fine...

Simon said, "Mom, this doesn't look like a real Christmas tree!"
Well, I beg to differ...
It IS a real Christmas tree...
and we're proud of it!
However...
next year we'll be going to Home Depot
and buying one of theirs:)
