This year my darling husband decided to order our tree from the tree farm at Dural to be delivered (and they pick it up also which is a bonus). We have both been so busy lately that to try and find time to take the boys out to choose one just wasn't going to happen!.
This meant, however, that we were on their schedule not our own. So it didn't arrive until last Wednesday! I have to admit to having some anxious moments thinking that it just doesn't FEEL like Christmas yet.
Thankfully the tree arrived in one lovely piece and yes we have overdone it on the size again! We have started a tradition in the last couple of years where we decorate the tree with the family - the in-laws and my mum and sometimes a good family friend. Everyone gets a new ornament every year to hang on the tree. This year we did little baubles with everyones names.
Oh - yes...we do have the largest tree in the land. For scale - a 12 year old boy standing on front!
Oh but the smell when I get home from work every day....its just Christmas!
