Advent Day Eight

Today's ornament is the Ten Commandments
This was harder to find that I thought it would be.  This was a find at Cafe Press.  I may hunt for a different one for future Christmas times.

"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." - Psalm 119:11

Today we went and got the Christmas tree.  Each year, we hunt for a Christmas tree farm to cut down our own tree.  It is a family tradition we have had for many years, and we love it.

This year, we are in a new town.  But we were able to find a place just a few miles from our house - in our same town.  It is a big tree farm, and we had so many to chose from.  
Our famiilies motto with Christmas trees - "go big or go home".  We like them poofy.  But this year - this year's tree takes the cake.  It is huge.  We have nicknamed it "Fatso".  I think it is about as big around as it is tall.   The tree is almost 8 feet tall.  It takes up a large part of our living room.  We were able to put every single ornament on the tree and still have room.  (which was a first).

Enjoy the pictures!
