Our first Christmas together Mr. 65th and I bought a tree from a tree lot; we got a bad one because it shed about a million needles in one day. The next year we went to a tree farm and cut our own tree down; it was so fresh, it lasted longer than the holidays. This is our eighth year getting our tree this way, it's a lot of work but worth it to us. Every year our tree is different and it smells so good!
There is still some debate about which is more "green"....cutting your own or buying fake. If anyone wants more information I can share some pros and cons, just let me know. Oh and yes, needles still drop, but they are cleaned up easily when I vacuum.
Mr. 65th makes sure the tree is well lit; then I take over and decorate it with all the ornaments. We make a great team. ;)
Now we're exhausted and ready for bed...it's been a long day decking the halls. I'll share some pictures with you soon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xo
