We wish you a Merry Christmas...

We picked a tree!

We do live in Arizona, so typically December weather still feels like early fall. But we got the full cold weather while picking out a tree experience last night. It included rain and a few of my fingers turning completely white - I should have taken a photo. We got the full "I can see my breath" weather.

Anyways..... Dashing and our tree!




It smells glorious. If it were a candle scent, I would name it North Pole. Our cat Sophie loves the new tree too!


As of this morning, our tree still looks like Sophie's picture - it's on the floor. We tried to use a plastic base from Walmart. Total fail. Lesson: Plastic does not adequately hold up a 7 foot tree. I couldn't sleep last night, so I was at Home Depot this morning at the crack of dawn buying a real metal one.

I can't wait until we will decorate it with lights and all. My tree inspiration is below. I'm think color blocking for Christmas!

Our ornaments are still very miss matched and strange. I'm working on gettin rid of M's worn out old red and gold plastic balls. We use a plastic stand that is almost like a bucket and has large metal screws to hold it in place.

Oh Sophie! :) I can't wait to see your tree when it's done. I know it's going to be beautiful!

Sophie is too cute! I love your decorating inspiration, a color blocked tree would be very unique. I can't wait to see how it looks :)
