We did it! We ventured out to the Christmas tree farm and found the perfect tree (at least we think so)! This is the final product. This year Matt's brother, Mark, went with and helped us pick out the tree, cut down the tree, and then anchor the tree in the stand at home. I did most of the decorating with Matt's help getting all 800 lights on just right. The holidays have just begun and we are excited to enjoy our tree, our family, and the true meaning of Christmas.
