We've had up our Christmas tree for a while now, but I'm just now getting around to blogging about it. When we went to get the tree, we instructed the person working that we needed about a 7 or 8 foot tree (they were in these strange stands and it was hard to tell exactly how tall they were). He pointed us over to a beautiful tree that appeared to be about the size we needed. However, once we got it home and in our own stand, we quickly discovered it was only about 5 feet tall. Oh well.....it's our Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
