O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum

how lovely are your branches~

We piled in the car to get our tree last Saturday and ventured out to Woodstock. When we arrived, I realized that I forgot my camera at home. I was a little upset but we trudged on and after a nice horse-drawn wagon ride out to the hinderlands, we found this lovely tree!



Michael couldn't wait to put the star on the top.






Here is the final result - all decked out. We even brought out the Polar Express Train to run around the tree.



A few years ago I found two feather trees from Martha Stewart collection at KMart. I enjoy decorating the white feather tree in Red & White ornaments. Michael is decorating the green one and I'll post his finished tree later.









I have missed participating in Kelli's Show and Tell Friday! Wishing you all a very wonderful and blessed holiday season. Visit Kelli's Place Kelli's Place for more wonderful posts!

I really like your feather tree. It actually is more like the real German feather trees. Very cute!
