We were all set to get a white one until I saw the most beautifully bright green Frasier fir in the lot. It still had some new growth on it, and though it was a little bit frazzled and would need lots of trimming, I just knew it was the one. Finn cried and cried when he realized we weren’t getting a white one! I think we’ll have to alternate every other year :)
So…over 1,000 fairy lights later (and a few subtle blinking firefly ones too!!), several owl ornaments (ever wondered how many owl ornaments are too many? Me neither.), my favorite christmas music mix, a few broken bits and pieces of glass, and oodles of SAP….we have the most beautiful tree I’ve ever seen. It’s like something from an enchanted forest: flawed yet sparkling. Oliver kept saying, “WOW!” (Between “Hooo Hooo’s” because of all the owls).
Neither of the boys can get to sleep tonight!
