Our First Real Christmas Tree!

Our First Real Christmas Tree!

This is our first Christmas in our new house and we decided to celebrate by getting our first fresh Christmas tree! We decided to keep it simple and go to Home Depot to find our tree.

My goal this year was to use fresh, natural decorations as much as possible so we also picked up pine boughs while we were there. Most places will give you the boughs they trim from the bottoms of the trees for free if you ask. Just look for some sort of crate that looks like trash and ignore the people who look at you strangely for digging through it. I picked up a couple handfuls of boughs and was able to easily do everything I had hoped to do.

We managed to get our tree set up, string lights, and introduce it to the puppy without knocking it over! Next step: ornaments!
