Charlie Brown Tree

The day after Thanksgiving means time to get ready for Christmas!
We spent the day cleaning up around the house and prepping for our big Christmas tree day tomorrow!
In years past I would use the extra trimmings from our Christmas tree for
garlands and wreaths to use inside the house.
There was obviously a limited supply of trimmings.
This year I don't even know what to do with myself!
Since we live in the middle of the woods I have unlimited supplies of pine tree trimmings.

I spent the afternoon wrapping pine tree branches around my railings.
Travis was a dear and kept cutting down large handfuls for me.

Emma and I have had our eye on a tiny little tree in the woods near our house.
We sweet talked Trav into digging it up so we could plant it in a pot.
The things that man does for us:)

The little tree started out on our front porch but ended up inside.
It was too cute to waste sitting outside in my opinion!


Do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
Does your family do real or fake?
Hope you had a good day...
I'm off to finish off the leftover pumpkin pie :)


  1. Oh my goodness! How cute and fun!! I love it! We've just always had a fake tree. But it's a good one. :)

  2. How fun! I have a question the dress/tunic that you are wearing is that a rescent purchase? Looks so cute!! We are still trying to decide on putting up a tree since we are in the selling our house process BUT it is my baby's first Christmas so I think I am gonna have to do it =)

  6. that looks like so much fun! and that tree is so pretty!!

  7. In ten years of marriage we've always had a fake tree. But Ive been begging for a real one this year. Hubby doesnt want the mess. But I want the smell and to relive the memories of my youth with real trees:) We're off to get one today!(Although i still do my silver tree in the dining room, which is fake)

  8. I LOVE your tree! And you have such a beautiful family :) We usually do a real tree, but this year we went fake. haha!

  9. awww how cute is that tree!?

    I love that you are the creative one and husband is the muscle lol I can't wait to see inside the house! I bet it's very green : )


  10. oh my gosh i love the planted tree! and the chalkboard paint! love it all. so much fun to live in the woods and cut down your own tree!

  11. I love it! We do fake trees. I really want to see how you put the branches on your porch. We live in among the trees and I think I would love having the real stuff decorating my porch!!!

  12. well aren't you just the cutest thing ... and lovin' that tree!

  13. We have been out of town for 5 days, but will probably get our trees tomorrow or Tuesday.

    We buy 2 trees (real ones). The kids get a BIG tree in the Family Room to hold ALL of their ornaments. (I buy a new ornament for each child every year ... which adds up when you have a dozen children.) Then, I get a smaller tree in the living room with all of my cute, country-style ornaments. (I use white lights and all of my ornaments are red or white.)

    Love your little tree.

    :) :) :)

  14. I love the lights and the fabric scraps! What a cute idea!

  15. I am straight up loving the boots and socks :)
    I just love any fun socks and boots combo!

    You and your family are GORGEOUS!!
