Trying to Find a Tree

We made our traditional trip to the tree farm with the girls. This year we found the most aromatic tree ever - the Carolina Sapphire. The tree smells heavenly, is silvery and soft both to look at and to touch. Our tree farm is about 8 miles away from our house and is really in the country but only 12 miles or so from the Atlanta city limits. The girls had fun helping make the tree selection and then playing hide and seek in the Christmas tree forest. This was the final selection. More pictures on the way once we get the decorations hung.


  1. What a wonderfully festive time you are having with the girls. That tree looks beautiful. The needles look so fine and the way you describe it smelling...Oh, I'd be in heaven. I love the aroma of the tree in our home! Wanted to put the tree up today, but feeling tired and in need of a large cup of tea and some r&r. Besides, I have to go unearth all of the ornaments, first!
    Have fun!!

  2. Oh my! your girls are so adorable! makes me so sad. Mine is 17 and we were dealing with bad boyfriend issues all weekend. yecch. just wait!!!

    thanks for the comment and hope you had a great Thanksgiving.. onward towards Christmas!
