This year’s Christmas Tree!

 

We’ve had our tree up since the end of November, but I’m still so excited about it and want to show it off a little bit.  We got it at Ikea!  I love that Ikea sells trees.  The money goes to Scouts Canada, and you get a $20 off coupon when you spend $70 in January.  So basically, if you can manage to spend $70 at Ikea in January, your tree is free 😉  (Like it’s hard to spend $70 at Ikea haha)

Here are a few pictures I took of our tree for 2015:

He even posed for me <3
