TIMBER !!!

On a tree hunt.....We went on a hunt for the perfect tree this past weekend. I have a soft spot for flocked trees. I always wanted one growing up, but my mom doesn't like them. Neither does James, but because he's so sweet, he's ok with getting one. He ended up picking out a monster of a tree. We had to wait a couple of days to get it because the flocking had to dry.


Not sure what this is..... Grrr.....super cute....James diligently worked on getting the tree level in the stand. It had a slight lean to it, but we chalked it up to a slightly misshapen tree. I spent about 4 hours decorating it, and something happened to me that's never happened before....It fell over !!! I was almost done ! It was pretty hilarious and I was a little surprised that only a handful of ornaments broke. There was flocking everywhere and James saw the whole thing from afar. He said it was in slow motion. I still haven't finished the tree, so it may be a few days before you see the finished product.
