Getting Our Tree

Are you ready to get back on schedule?
I’m not…ha ha! 
I have been really enjoying this little break and having my husband home.
I told you here that we were going to put our tree up on Saturday.  We started putting it together when my husband decided that he wanted a real tree.  We never had a real tree before and we all got excited, took down the tree and left right away and drove to a local farm to find our perfect tree! :)
The kids were soooo excited!

We have to finish the tree first.

We started the lights today but our old lights only made in up half the tree.  (Our new one is 8 1/2 feet.) So I had to go out and find new ones today and every store seemed to be out of the ones that I wanted…URGH!  I finally found some at ACE.  Anyway, be the time we finished that ordeal we had to eat dinner, finish the lights and bed, so I will add the ornaments tomorrow after school.
I will show you after that.  Grace is unbelievably excited to help me this year which makes to even more fun for me!
How was your weekend?
Do you get real trees?
Have a great weekend!
Bonnie :)
