Matt is working on a remodel for a sweet couple outside of Dayton.  After his first meeting with them at their property {they just bought the home}, Matt started to convince me that we needed acreage. {wink}  Their setting is really neat....private and surrounded by farms.  The front of their property is full of Christmas trees.....


And they were gracious enough to allow us to cut our tree {s} from their property.  Friday {after Thanksgiving} we headed over to pick out our Christmas tree, Addilyn even got her own darling little tree for her bedroom.


Aren't those trees beautiful?


Now, having grown up on a Christmas tree farm, it was never a big deal for our family to get a tree.  My mom would usually just grab one, while my dad was gone at work.

No big deal.

But, since our little family of 4 doesn't live on a Christmas tree farm, it's fun to make a big deal of it!  You know....loud Christmas music, hot chocolate and cookies......


Can you believe it has taken us over 4 days to decorate our tree?  And we still are not done!  See that rogue baby under the tree?  She is one of the reasons it takes so long to decorate ;-)


And there she is again, under the tree skirt.....


Addilyn and I made a paper chain for the tree.  A 10' tree requires a lot of paper chain!!


Our beautiful tree provided extra fresh greens for a little decorating around the house.


I actually snagged the cedar from our of our Cedar trees.  I love fresh cedar!!


A wood crate filled with greens {and a few magnolia sprigs}, flameless candles and a white bird.


A basket filled with greens, books and birds for our outside dining table.


Window boxes filled with greens and ornaments {on Matt's wood shop}.


And a few greens for the front porch!

I have a feeling it may take me all month to decorate for Christmas.....but that is part of the fun!!
