This morning we got our tree. He's a little baby Noble. My goodness, trees are expensive! But I'm not quite ready to buy a pre-lit plastic tree yet - I love the evergreen smell and the time spent stringing it up, and being the good little lumber-mill-employed Oregonian that I am, I like supporting my local Oregon tree farm. We took the baby to Starbucks (the tree lot is right next to it - just a short walk away from our house) and leaned him against the wall while we went in to get our fix. And now it's leaning against the house in a bucket of water while I sit here on my butt writing in LJ clean the living room in preparation for his arrival.
