We've been going to the same chose and cut your own tree place for 6 years.

This year we decided to go the non traditional route.
Bought a Spruce instead of Pine. It's a beautiful tree graceful looking. Hypoallergenic, doesn't drop needles all over the place. Has some scent, it's just not like the pine.
It might get decorated today.

We had a fake tree growing up, but since I've been married its a real tree every year. We have a true hodgepodge of things on the tree. Ornaments that have some significance to each of us. Homemade ornaments (made by the kids not me!), stained glass ornaments from Ken's work, and some that were just too cute to pass by. No theme at all, just lots of love on the tree! Here is this years edition. Ignore the tilt, I was holding the laptop at a weird angle when I took the picture.
