December 4th my hubby and I cut down a pretty tree at the tree farm down the road. We had to brush off the snow because we got it in a snow storm. When we got home we put it in water right away.
The next day we let it sit and on the 6th we decorated it.
Here is the tree. I looks pretty good. I don't know what kind it is but it dropped so many needles. I was ready to take it down two days before Christmas and put up a fake one. I took it down Dec. 28 and it sounded like it was raining. That is the earliest I ever took down my tree. Here is what it looked like under the tree.
This is one pile I swept up.
This is the first time I have had this kind of trouble with a real tree. I am thinking about getting a fake tree next year.
Any advice? I would love to hear from you. Do you have a fake tree or a real tree?
