This is the first time in at least 15 years that we've had a live tree (we've used our artificial one for at least the last 15 years). Love the smell of the real one!

You can't beat a real tree for Christmas. As you say the smell is lovely.

This one has a funny story. My grandparents had some trees fall down from the weight of the snow a few weeks ago. We went over there and chopped the top of one of the trees off haha. Now is standing in my living room. It looked a lot worse without the ornaments. I took a picture of the good side LOL

We have an ordinance here that makes us coat the trees in a flame retardant spray. We opted to just go fake for a few years.

Wife wanted a real one last year. After her forgetting to water it and all the needles falling off quickly and such it really wasn't worth it for her so we got a new fake one with the lights already on it.

We have started a tradition ever since the kids were born, to go out to the local tree farm, load up on the horse drawn wagon, venture out through the fields, and cut our own tree. What appeared to be a seven foot high tree, always turned out to be a nine foot high tree whenever it came time to pay for it.

 

But since buying this house two years ago, and to limited income due to layoff time, we didn't have the money to purchase a tree for the past two years. I told Kathy, this year we are getting a tree no matter what it takes. Not sure why, but the tree pricing is outrageous this year. We were used to spending around $50.00 for a nine foot tree, but this year, a nine footer costs over $80.00. Just nuts.

 

So this year, we elected to stop by a farm on the south side of town that had cut trees. Not much to choose from as far as Douglas Firs, but here is what we came home with. It's only six feet high, but it will serve it's purpose this year, since we were used to being without.

Next year I'll dip into the tractor funds and bring home the right size tree. I like my Christmas trees tall and fat, and since we have ten foot ceilings in this house, the bigger the better!

At least it's counter balanced by a john Deere toy!
