PICKING OUT
THE RIGHT CHRISTMAS TREE

This is the weekend
when most families are out
selecting their holiday tree.
Mostly fresh cut 
(they smell soooo good.)

Picking the best tree 
is usually a family decision --
the right shape, not too tall,
no funny limbs hanging out.
And with room for the ornaments
and tinsel back home.

Then tie it to the car,
and getting it through the front door.

Putting the star on top 
is a great "first thing to do."
Then we can put on the lights,
and hang the family ornaments.
It's a great tradition.

And I'm happy to learn
buying and recycling a natural tree
is better for the environment
than an artificial tree!

How would you decorate a tree
for the holidays?

  3. In here, I'm sure u know, we don't use natural trees, so we go searching for it in the closet haha!
    It really looks beautiful by now, but I'm sure not as beautiful as any natural one :/

    As long as I have been in USA many times, i see your pics and remember how wonderful Xmas smells... ;)
