We got our Christmas tree over the weekend!
Local readers: We get our tree from the guy (Bernie) who sets up next to Curtis Liquors in Weymouth. He’s the NICEST guy ever, and I highly recommend getting your tree there!
Jacket: Columbia Turbodown // Boots: Columbia Minx Omni-Heat // Jeans: 7 for All Mankind // Scarf: Stitch Fix (Sorry, I don’t know the brand. I cut off the tag.)
Back at home, we put Quinn in his highchair to play while we set up the Christmas tree nearby.
He was very interested in what we were doing!
Mal put Quinn to work untangling the Christmas lights.
He sort of helped.
Meanwhile, Murphy pouted because we weren’t paying attention to him. Poor pug.
Time to decorate!
Question of the Day
Have you put up your Christmas tree yet? Real or fake tree?
We got ours from Bernie yesterday!! He’s the best! He has a great landscaping company, too, if you ever need anything done.
@Jillian: Bernie! I forgot his name. Thank you!!
We do a fake tree, I’ve never had a real tree before. Your tree is pretty! We just put ours up this weekend, I love how pretty a room looks with the lights from the tree!
We got our Christmas tree over the weekend from Bernie! Real is the only way to go -makes the house smell so so good. Although hoping our puppy (her first Christmas) doesn’t try to eat it like she does everything else. 😉
We did a real tree this year for the first time in a long time! It was a fun process to go get the tree and I love the smell. I think I will go with real from now on!
Awe Murphy, so cute! A real Christmas tree is just the best, you can’t beat the smell!
The tree looks beautiful and Quinn is SO cute with those lights! No tree yet! But I love the smell of a real one 🙂
He has such gorgeous bit inquisitive eyes!!! You guys are all set for your best Christmas ever this year..kids just make it!
My parents go towards the fake tree route, you know the no smell but no pine needles to clean either. Although I can’t wait until I have my own place because I have always wanted a real tree!
I am 29 years old and for the first time ever I’ll get to have a real Christmas tree. Family allergies and such have always prevented us (me) from having a real tree for most of my life. I am really excited for the whole “real tree” experience this year!
We have the same tree we bought the year we got married. It was way ahead of it’s time look wise. People always ask if it’s real and there plenty of greens around the house to give off the scent of the season!
We have a tradition of getting our tree and putting it up on Black Friday since we are not Black Friday shoppers. Our girls know that we do our tree the day after Thanksgiving and they look forward to it! Love the pic of Quinn with all the Christmas lights. Would make a cute Christmas card pic 🙂
So cute! I love the pictures of Quinn with the lights. We have our tree up, just no lights or ornaments yet. Haha, hope to change that soon!
Lol. I love that you decorated your baby.
How adorable! It must be so exciting to be sharing this with Quinn! I just pulled out our (fake) tree and we’re decorating it tonight!
I put up my tree a couple weeks ago while I was unexpectedly off of work for several days because of snow!
Love the pictures of you guys decorating and of course Quinn! Looks like so much fun and lots of great memories being made 🙂
Your tree looks great! We are going to cut down a tree this weekend. We usually do it right after Thanksgiving, but it was way too cold this year!!
We haven’t put ours up yet. I love real trees so we were waiting to get our real one. Can’t wait though, I’ve been itching to get decorating.
No tree for us this year, no room. I’m gonna miss it
I love how you include Murphy in the family fold. Dogs really can feel neglected when baby comes.
We have a nice fake tree that my parents gave us when they downsized to a condo. It’s not my favorite but I really hate cleaning up pine needles lol. We haven’t set it up yet. Probably next weekend. I’m apprehensive this year bc I have a VERY mobile 1 year old.
Quinn is so mesmerized by the lights and ornaments – so cute! We have a fake tree this year. Our apartment doesn’t allow real ones. I cannot wait until we have a house and can cut down our own tree 🙂
How cute!! First christmas, so exciting!!
Oh I need to get my tree! I buy mine off the sidewalk in NYC!
How fun! Everything is much more festive with a little one around, isn’t it? No tree for me in the city this year, because my husband and I will be gone for a while and just don’t have the room. But we always did fake trees in the past. Happy December to you!
We haven’t started to decorate yet. We aren’t allowed real trees in our apartment complex (boo!) so I’m deciding whether or not I want to get a fake one since we will be gone for two weeks of December anyways.
We just got our tree this weekend, too! It’s our first Christmas as a married couple and our first tree together. I always grew up with fake trees with white lights, and my husband had real trees with multi-color lights. We compromised and put up a real tree with white lights. It looks (and smells) great!!
I have colitis too. Going grain free has helped me so much.
That’s where we buy our tree too!! We’re sadly skipping the tradition this year…I’m pregnant and don’t have the energy. But sooo looking forward to taking my little baby there next year for his/her first tree!!
We got our real tree on Saturday. I decorated it while sipping egg nog w/ a splash of rum! My husband was on baby duty (3 week olds don’t wait for you to finish decorating, lol)
After 10 years of marriage I finally got my real tree this year!! My son had a blast picking out the perfect tree.
I just love him! Can’t believe how big he has gotten! Love your tree. Thinking about getting on this year 🙂
We have not yet gotten our tree – I’m hopeful that we’ll get it this weekend. Always real. Nothing beats the smell of a Christmas tree! I’ve started decorating our house and quickly realized that I don’t have nearly enough holiday decorations for a house! It’s our first Christmas not living in an apartment.
Your tree looks beautiful! I bet Quinn loves the bright colors!
HAHAHA, Murphy certainly knows how to look pitiful and sad when not being paid attention to!
We have a fake tree 🙂
We put our tree up the day after Thanksgiving every year. It is fake because of my allergies.
We have a much smaller house this year, so we found a $10 3-foot tree at Menard’s. It’s so tiny and cute, but sits pretty nicely next to the front door. Not decorated yet, but all of that is getting done this week. We’ve decided to decorate it using our Disney ornaments and Cinderella “Angel.” Gonna be epic!
The one bad thing about staying at my parent’s Thanksgiving weekend was that we didn’t get our tree put up yet. Yours is beautiful!
Getting ours on Friday!! We go with real. 🙂
I have 2 that I put up. Both are fake & both are up. I’ve never had a real tree ever.
Took out the fake tree last week and discovered half of the lights didn’t work. So this week we will go out and get a REAL one. Can’t wait to smell the pine!
