Tree Assembly 101

I grew up in Iowa 1/2 mile from Strum's Christmas Tree Farm. So buying a fake tree was new to me. Big-dub had 11 trees to choose from! Who knew! Tree #9 was the most real looking, "Aspen Pine". Last year we bought a pretty Norfolk pine in a pot, then we planted it out in the yard, it's still alive!

The kids were happy to assemble this new tree. A few shouts and mix ups later, our tree was up and looking festive. A trimmed tree, Chipmunks Christmas CD, advent calendar, and some cookies later I am officially in the Christmas spirit.

  1. Hi Tara! I love what you are doing here! It is fantastic! I know what you mean about the fake trees! Ben was having troubles putting it together and my advice was to look at the picture on the side of the box!
