Life has been busy around here lately but this weekend we did make time to find a Christmas tree!  I might be biased, but I think she's perfect.  It was not the easiest to find a real tree in Valdivia, but where there's a will, there's a way!  The supermarkets are full of plastic trees, doo-dads, tinsel, and twinkle lights but I really wanted a live tree that would fill the house with its piney smell.  So, we went to a local greenhouse and asked the guy if he had any trees for sale.  Lucky for us, he had one little conifer, roots and all.  We loaded her in our car along with a nice big plastic pot and now she resides in the living room ready to be decorated.  Maybe she will even last until next year!

Hope you're having a good weekend too!
