The Tree!

I knew you guys loved our Christmas trees but I had no idea how much! This last week I've gotten a few emails asking about our Christmas tree. Well wait no longer, friends. For those that are new to hotflawedmama, this post will give you a glimpse into why the tree is a big deal around here.

For the last 3 years we've just went out and picked out a tree from around camp. They've been interesting and unique and well, perfect, for our family. But last year we noticed there were virtually no more trees to choose from. So, so sad.

So this year we decided to do something different. We bought a tree. But not just any tree, we brought a little tiny one. One we'll be able to plant come spring time. We loved the idea, of making memories then planting them (kind of) and watching them grow.

We still have our Charlie Brown Christmas, with a little twist.

There was still a selection process, of course.

And notice the almost week old dreadlocks!

Then we chose. It was terrrrrific!

Came home and promptly decorated. Notice the little Habesha tongues, love it.

And the end result. So beautiful!

So there you have it. Not nearly as unique as before but we still happen to think it's pretty cute.

Love it, but nothing can top last was definitely my favorite. :) What a great idea to plant them.
