Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

This weekend we got our 6th annual Larson Christmas Tree. We headed down to good old Home Depot (sigh) to get our Christmas Tree. It is a little anti-climatic getting our tree at Home Depot because growing up Jimmy would take us girls up to the Santa Cruz Mountains to cut (or chain saw) down our Christmas Tree. Kevin and I continued this tradition until I got pregnant with Kate & the thought of going to cut down a tree at 8 months preggo was not fun. My parents & sisters took 3 years off going to cut down the tree until this year & they all went up to the mountains on Saturday to get a REAL tree while Kevin and I schlepped the girls to Home Depot. Next year we will up to the mountains & continue that fun tradition.

So, without further adieu, here is our Home Depot Tree 2008:

The tree before:
and after!

and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care.......


  1. Mel, GREAT BLOG! I love your posts and I love that you and Kev have so many great traditions. We miss you guys! Hope to see you soon!

  2. Actually, we only took 2 years off, Mel. It was you and Kevin who didn't go with us one year :)

    Nice tree. Kinda small though...
