O Christmas Tree

We went out on Wednesday night to find a Christmas tree. Before we arrived in Juneau, we were sure that we would go out into the mountains to find this year's tree--boy were we wrong! There just aren't very nice (Christmas) trees growing naturally here. So instead we ended up at a nursery looking for the perfect tree. The past two years we had a Blue Spruce, but we couldn't find a Blue Spruce this year, so we ended up with a Nobel Fir. Truth be told, it was so cold (ok, it was only about 20 F) that my teeth were chittering and I was pretty useless. Luckily this tree was sitting out waiting for us.

If you can't tell from the picture, I really like white lights. It really is an art form getting them evenly spread throughout the tree (and making sure that you don't run out of lights before reaching the bottom.) It's so pretty with just the lights and angel (and one other ornament--see below) that I don't know if we're even going to put the rest of the decorations on this year.

Wow! You found a Noble! When we went there were only three Charlie Brown versions of these. Did you go to Glacier Gardens? Or where? It looks beautiful. Can you be hired out next year to put lights on our tree????

Great tree. Ours has all white lights as well, but we have a tradition of homemade ornaments that we've tossed on.
