The one where we get all festive

Christmas 2009-2

We finally have a christmas tree!! Due to Wal being away for the past 2 weeks we were really late in getting our tree. The other day we all put on our warm waterproof gear and headed out to Delamere Forest. We do this every year and I absolutely love it! Things were a bit sparce due to the lateness and I think being a week day they didn’t restock. I might be wrong on the restocking as the trees are grown at Delamere forest so once the stock is gone it’s gone- ya know?!?!

After searching among all the charlie brown trees we finally found one we liked. Although I kept telling Wal he was looking at trees that were too short he was convinced we always got one that size. Once home he conceded that we might perhaps usually get a taller one- DUH!! Regardless the tree is up and almost trimmed. We need to get up into the loft for the rest of our bits and baubles.
