Getting the trees is one of my favorite holiday tradition. After a run to Starbucks for hot chocolate, we headed to our favorite spot to buy a Christmas tree.

We aren't looking for big trees. We aren't looking for perfect trees. We were looking for our trees.

Here is Lovely, pointing out a spot where this tree needs some love. Both of our trees needed some serious love and had a definite side that is now hidden by the wall. We like them that way. Little Charlie Brown trees.

The Commander is good for more than hauling keyboards and music gear. I was delighted to discover that you could haul not one, but two Christmas trees home on top of it.

Guy frees one of the trees from the roof rack.

And here is the tree in the living room. The blue and silver tree. The side in the corner is facing that way for a reason. It's missing several branches back there. But you would never know. It's a beautiful tree, and I love it.

We'll have to take a picture of the tree in the dining room as well. It's also a little Charlie Brown tree that just needed some love.

You know, most days, I feel like a little Charlie Brown tree that Guy picked out and gave some love.

I'm such a dork.

And, this may be weird, but somehow I think that I would have described just that tree-- the decorations, that is-- if someone would have asked me, "so how do you think Canape would decorate her tree?" I mean this in a good way. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Steph DATE:Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 7:33:00 AM EST I think its GREAT that you pick trees that need love and then decorate them. Your tree looks great. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Liz DATE:Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 9:09:00 AM EST Beautiful tree...all decorated and LOVED.

And love the photos. I did, however, note that the picture of you is CUT OFF JUST BELOW THE SHOULDERS.

Um, belly shots? Please? The Internetz lurves their belly shots! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Tara DATE:Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 11:15:00 AM EST Your tree is gorgeous.

You know last year, after Christmas we were driving by the tree lots on our way somewhere, and I started crying for all the trees that hadn't been taken home. Yes, I was pregnant and hormonal and weepy... but I was like hyserically bawling and Jonathon was offering to go buy me some unloved trees and put them on our deck. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Bubblewench DATE:Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 12:28:00 PM EST That tree is so pretty!! I like to pick the trees that need a little lovin too! Now I'm all excited to go get ours. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children DATE:Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 5:50:00 PM EST Almost makes me want to get a real tree!
