Christmas Trees POTD for 11/28 & 11/29

My first POTD is actually for yesterday......this is my mini pink Christmas Tree that I have set up in my scrapbook room. When I saw it, I just knew I had to buy it as I love pink! Well, purple is really my most favorite color, but pink ranks right up there with purple :) I'll be making some more ornaments to add to it in the very near future.

Jim & I had originally planned to buy an artificial Christmas Tree this year. We even went as far as finding one that we both agreed on, paying for it, waiting for the store to get more in & then picking it up at the store. I started putting it together this morning only to find out that one of the branches was broken on it :( Just my luck! So it was as if that was telling me something.....stick to real trees! I called Jim at work & he said he could take a half day off & we would go out to the tree farm to find a real tree. Needless to say, he was VERY happy :) I really do love real trees (although I'll never admit that to Jim, lol). The scent of them just fills the whole house. The only thing I don't like about them is finding the 'perfect' tree, getting sap all over my hands & decorating them. But I guess you have to take the bad with the good sometimes, right?

On to the Photos Of The Day. We went to the Candy Cane CHRISTmas Tree Farm & searched for over an hour looking for that perfect tree. It seems that this tree farm has been hit really hard the past couple of years, so their selection of taller trees wasn't the best, but they had another tree farm ship them in some cut trees, which is what we ended up buying. Here's the pics of our tree hunt.

The tree we picked:

Into the car we go:












Yay, it's up!:












Although it probably won't be decorated for at least a couple of days. We want the branches to fall into place & besides, we have a very busy schedule for the next couple of days, so it may end up waiting until the weekend to be decorated.

There you have it.....my POTD for the past 2 days. Off to go bowling.....have a great night :)

oooh I love the pink tree - pink, purple and red are my favorite colors! I love real trees but we haven't had one for years - our duplex is so small I had to buy a skinny artificial one and it will have to do until we have a bigger place! I can't wait to see your big tree when it's all decorated!

The little pink tree is so very girly, and the big fresh tree so manly, what a great compromise for Christmas.
