Yep! That’s our tree. Prior to the proper trimming of course and, um just in case you didn’t notice…it’s purple. P.U.R.P.L.E. Pretty sure it is a direct result of having a house full of girls.
We had planned to purchase our usual balsam fir tree from the local Optimist Club. We have always had a real tree – well – at least ever since I tried to spray paint our fake one black – but that’s another post! We love the scent of a real Christmas tree, the look of a real Christmas tree and the feel of a real Christmas tree. We love real trees! But that was before we walked into a certain bookstore and our 3 daughters fell in love! In love with this purple Christmas tree. They all three spotted it in unison. And it was in unison they said, ( in their bestest “I know I can have this guy wrapped around my finger in no time” voices) ”"Daddy- can we have THIS one instead?” He paused for a moment and then said through a giant smile, “of course you can have the purple tree.” Woot!Woot! We won, we won! Pretty sure he was voted BEST. DAD. EVER. at that very moment!
So that’s it – that’s how we ended up with a purple Christmas tree. And I should mention, I LOVE it! And I should also mention purple is the signature color of royalty. Quite fitting for a house full of queenies!
Merry Christmas to you all – make sure you enjoy the little things in life….or the big things…… like a purple Christmas tree!
