Our first Christmas tree!

We have been married for 5 years and this is our first tree since we won't be traveling this year. It's real too! Thankfully my sister sent me some decorations for my birthday one year. I now have a purple and red tree :)

My favorite ornament is the little outhouse towards the top of the tree; maybe I'll take a close up on it later.

Isn't my collage sweet? Picasa updated and now I have this new feature.

Yay! Congrats. That is so great that you have a REAL one too. I miss those (they smell so yummy). We have never even had a real one, you lucky ducks.

Just wait till you have all the cute little homemade decorations the boys make in school! I thought you were going to get an artificial one so it doesn't dry out? Keep it wet! (Blu Gramma)

Great tree! So glad you get one this year. We are putting ours up next weekend after Kate's b-day so hopefully it does not dry out to much. Good call going for a real one.

The collage is fabulous! I wish I could talk Eli into not getting a tree when we're not traveling. We have been together for 4 Christmases, traveled 2 weeks+ every year and had trees 3/4 times. He is too sentimental to let it go. It must be nice to stay home for Christmas. Maybe we'll try that sometime :).

I have been using Shutterfly collage but I am now equally happy that Picassa upgraded. Great tree Ashley's Clan!
