We drove to Green Canyon, Idaho, to get our tree this year. That area has the spruce trees we prefer.
Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of us finding, cutting, or dragging the Christmas tree to the truck. Instead, I have fifty-seven pictures of Moose playing in the snow.
It was his first time seeing any significant accumulation and he kind of freaked out about it.
Let me fully impress upon you the point that Moose LOVES the snow.
Dad, look! Snow! Everywhere! I love it! I must run! I must prance! I must feel the wind through my ears!
Mom! Look at me! I love you! And I love the whole world! Pet me! Never mind! I must run speedily through this glorious snow!
So, yeah. His utter joy was highly entertaining.
And that's why our Christmas tree post is all about our very large puppy.
And his beautiful golden eyes.
But anyway. Back at the ranch...with Moose exhausted in his backyard kennel, we dragged in our thirteen footer and set her up. We felt the need to take advantage of our new vaulted ceilings.
Good thing for the ginormous ladder, is all I have to say.
Fully decorated with "The Grinch" playing in the background and 600 drops of sap waiting to be scrubbed off the wood floors. Becca kept saying it looked like a Dr. Seuss tree. I'm cool with that. I think.
Glowing in the dark. It was at this point that I decided to forego the white ribbon next year. It just looked like I toilet papered my Christmas tree.
At the after Christmas sales, I searched for a birch wood-looking ribbon I had seen, but ended up instead with a pale blue burlap ribbon for next year. Pale blue, pale green, and white is the color scheme I have been trying to gather and pull off for years. But my love for red keeps sneaking in and stealing the show.
A full tour of my Christmas decorations will be coming soon! Until then, here are a few inspirational photos I found to help me with my new color theme next year...
