After walking around, finding trees in our price range, we found our special tree! There were so many beautiful trees to choose from. That was another fear of mine being so late in the game.
Oh this tree is HUGE. We knew is was beautiful and smelled great but didn't realize how LARGE it really was... and heavy (so I'm told).
Gabe wasn't here to help out this year, so in honor of him, we took a picture of his special ornament, Big Blue. Since the kids were little, they would put their own meaningful ornaments on the tree. Gabe loved Big Blue and it always had to be on the top of the tree. So there you go Gabe!
Ta Da! It's a beautiful tree. Now it truly feels like Christmas.
