Makeover Monday: 12/20

Here she is, the bare 2010 Thoma tree. We have been getting our tree at the Lake Ridge Nursery for many years. They are always very helpful, have a great selection, and even provide hot cocoa and cookies for you while your tree is being tied onto the car. They throw in a free 6" poinsettia, too! We're not sure whether we ended up with a Douglas or a Frasier fir, but she is over 7 feet tall and smells like heaven.

I put the lights up on Saturday. Well, my first attempt was on Friday but I ended up with a bum string in the middle of the tree. Sophie and I did the ornaments on Sunday, and we're pretty darned happy with the results! Now we're ready for Santa to come put some presents underneath...

Well, she is simply beautiful...every single inch of her 7 feet!! You girls did a fabulous job of dressing her up...quite the fashionista she is, all dolled up in finery and bling to beat the band!!! I love a big tree and have had a few almost as lovely as yours is...what's her name anyway? Can't wait to see her....I'm sure we'll smell her before we see her!! :) See you soon!
