It all starts with the Christmas tree in our house. Last year we found a wonderful tree farm just over the Pennsylvania border called, Colivita's. Beautiful, full, healthy trees over 10 feet tall filled a large area stacked against a big barn. A field full of meticulously manicured smaller trees awaited that perfect family to take them home. The entire experience is picture perfect.

My husband picked out this years tree, while I was sorting the wreaths for our front door. It's probably the finest tree we have ever gotten at Christmas. They delivered and set-up the tree in the family room, and when they cut the netting around the tree.....we had to move furniture to make room for it!  It was like Chevy Chase's tree in the movie, Christmas Vacation!!

The following photos reflect our decorating process from beginning to end. We are pretty proud of our tannenbaum----INTRODUCING----- our 2013 Family Christmas tree!
