countdown to Christmas (5 days)

One of my favorite holiday traditions is picking out our tree. We are partial to the fraser fir. Something about how they feel and how they look make them simply perfect.

Since his arrival C has picked out each of our trees. This year was no exception. He picked out a beautiful 6.5 foot fraser fir that is round and full and is just wide enough at the bottom. It is perfection.

The photo above does the tree little justice. I know the star is crooked, too. Please don’t mind the mess. We’re making memories.

Our topper is simple and sparkly. It is a pretty silver star that emits the right amount light and shimmer.

We do not have a theme for our tree. All things sparkly, pretty, quirky and cute make there way onto it. From footballs to gingerbread men and stars to swirls. Garland or tinsel are a must for shimmer. We are big fans of colored lights.

Let us not forget the tree skirt. You can almost always find our sweet little kitten snuggled below the tree. Thankfully this is resting place of preference, not nestled in the tree top.
