This is my favorite time of year!
I LOVE the smell of pine in our house. Time to pick out a tree!
This is the first year where Samuel really understands what is happening. He was only home for a few weeks we got our tree last year.
The staff is really friendly, the trees are set up beautifully, and they flock in different colors!
Flocking uses toxic chemicals, but it reminds me of my childhood Christmases….
My grandma’s house had a white flocked tree every year.
They also have some gigantic trees.
15-20 foot ones!
We aren’t going to be around the majority of December, so we thought we would just get a tree for the smell (and tradition’s sake) that was small….
The very friendly and helpful man that worked there told us that those 4 ft trees were $100 without the stand!
As much as I loved that place, I’m too cheap to spend that much on a little tree we will enjoy for a week.
Brian was ready to buy it, but my dad taught me the art of Christmas tree shopping.
Thanks to Siri we were off to East LA….
Where we bought our 6ft tree for $20!
We decided just to do just big lights this year…
