O Christmas Tree

christmas treeLast Saturday, I went to pick out the Christmas tree with the dog.  She wasn’t super excited to try on a hat, but the trip was successful nonetheless. I went to the same grain supply store that I visited last year. The tree lasted so long last year- almost until the end of January! The owner said that she has the trees cut to order earlier in the week so they are super fresh.

Our tree is small, but perfectly fits the space and all of our ornaments. Five years ago, we only had paper origami ornaments that we had made, but every year we have bought one ornament and been given some. It’s great to open the Christmas ornaments’ box and see all the reminders of our friends and family. It’s not a fancy or themed tree, but it suits us perfectly.

I don’t think Isla was feeling particularly Christmassy though. She just wanted to nap in peace!
