Trimming the Tree

Thursday night Cortney and I headed out on a quest to find the perfect Christmas tree for 2008! Our regular tree place wasn’t there this year, so we had to find an alternate place. We paid a little more this year for a Conford Colifur (not even sure if that is how you spell it), but it’s so soft and so pretty…we just love it! So Cort strapped it on the truck and we took it home!
Cortney put the bag on it, stuck it in the stand, and carried it in the house. It fit just right!
After he put the lights on it, it was my turn to finish up the decorating.
Thank goodness Louis was a fan this year! He had big fun rolling around under the tree and feeling like a tiger!
He was not nearly as excited once we got the presents underneath. His new hiding place was gone, but I think it looks pretty darn good!
Let the Christmas festivities begin!

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Merry Christmas! You guys have a perfect window for that tree. Do you know we have the exact same coffee table!?
