I ♥ LOVE ♥ putting up a Christmas tree. 
If it were up to me, it would go up the day after Thanksgiving.
If it were up to Jeremy, it would go up on the 18th of December ;)
So, we compromise :)

Sunday we went up to Mom and Dad Fraijo's to pick out the perfect tree.


And Grandma and Grandpa had the fixin's for S'mores all ready.


The girls picked out their tree, we picked out ours . . .


And then, the traditional family picture ;)  We just started this last year, but two years in a row constitutes tradition, right?  {And also?  Heavy coat + weird camera angle = mucho added pounds}.


And . . . TA DA!  Our tree.  All 11 feet of it.  Can you just picture me up on a ladder trying to string the lights?  Good times.

11 feet?! WOW!! It looks amazing! We're getting ours this weekend. We make the same compromise :) We also compromise after Christmas. I want the tree down the day after. Brian wants to keep it until Easter. :)

Love the family pic!

This looks like so much fun picking out a tree and bringing it home! We've never done anything but an artificial tree!

I love the family picture!!! :o)

Your tree is gorgeous! I usually hang the decorations on the tree, but the lights are Jason's job:)
