Christmas Tree!

Today we went on an adventure to a local garden centre to find the perfect Christmas tree for our house! Just so you know we've never actually had a real Christmas tree before due to the fact that one of my siblings is allergic to them but this year we can have one because they've left home! Finally a REAL tree! WOO!

There was so many Christmas trees to choose from at the garden centre and it took us such a long time to look through them all before we settled on a medium sized, really nice looking tree!
  Even though it was only a medium sized Christmas tree it was still way taller than me and took so much effort to fit it in our car.

Even though I absolutely love the smell of Christmas trees, it wasn't very fun having to sit in the back of a car, being squished by one! And at one point a creepy bug flew out of the tree and landed on the window, NOT cool bug, not cool! It had spikes and everything o_O

Getting acquainted with the tree :D 

It took us a while to get it out of the car, down the drive and through the front doors but when we had managed to get it into the lounge we put it in it's pot and placed it in the corner of the room, where it's going to stay  for around the next 2 weeks !

Finally we could start with the super fun bit which I look forward to doing every year! So stick on the Christmas tunes and start decorating that tree! 
  We started as usual with the fairy lights and then added bows, snowflakes and baubles, this year we decided on a silver and light pink theme, because why not? And to finish it all of, we put the star on the top of the tree! Perfect!

This year's Christmas tree

I absolutely love our Christmas tree this year, but the question is, do you? Please tell me in the comments what you think of it and whether or not you'd like me to make a video showing what our house looks like at Christmas! 

*I hope I brought you a sprinkle of joy today!*
