O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree

Undeniably, My favorite time of the year!

The sweet aroma of gingerbread baking in the oven and the lingering smell of Christmas trees left in the car after a trip to the tree farm.

Christmas carols being sung by a little girl named Amelia and the sheer excitement in her eyes as she informs us that Santa will be bringing her "blue" stickers this year.

It's truly beautiful!

This morning we decided it would be the perfect day to go out and pick our own Christmas tree.  A new experience for our family, as in previous years we would simply dash out to the local greenhouse.
 It was a little overwhelming and became rather difficult to find the "perfect" tree as they all started to look alike. 
But we did it... we finally found "our" tree.  Perhaps not so perfect, but hey, neither are we.
My "Engineer" Husband took all necessary measures to secure the tree to the roof of my car
All necessary measures...
... including securing the doors shut!
 Yep, that's right...I wasn't kidding...  

But, I'm happy to report, he did a great job and the tree made it home sweet home!
