I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! After yesterday, I am officially in the Christmas spirit. As you may know, we made the trek out into the Yukon wilderness and managed to wrestle down a scrawny spruce tree to bring home. I quickly realized, that the trees growing in the Yukon are not very full. I believe it has something to do with the permafrost and the lack of nutrients. Nonetheless, we had a great time heading out on a cool, brisk morning and finding a tree that works just fine! I have posted a before and after picture just so you can see the artistic ability of my talented and beautiful girlfriend! She managed to turn a Charlie Brown tree into something a little nicer.
For all of you trying to decide on whether you should get a real tree or a fake tree, I highly recommend the real tree. The experience of going out into the bush and finding the perfect tree to bring home is worth way more then going to WalMart and buying a fake one.
So, take a look below and let me know what you think about our Christmas tree. As well, I would love any tips on how to keep this thing alive until Christmas!
