First, we set up our Christmas tree a little before Elanor's birthday. We were rather disappointed we were not able to get a tree from a farm (my first time ever not). We got our tree at Smith's Marketplace (it is like a Fred Meyer) and it dried out a lot more quickly than usual because it was probably cut awhile ago in Oregon and shipped to Utah. It was quite a lovely tree though and I am ashamed to say that I never got a proper picture of it or any of our other decorations. We were pretty busy before we left for Oregon making gifts and somehow I never got around to getting a picture. I planned on taking some when we got back, but I forgot until after we already took everything down.
