christmas tree

let's see if i can put these pictures in somewhat chronological order and then i'm going to call it a day. 

last night's book club... 

the boys, sometime this morning... 


today was our planned day to get out the christmas decorations.  and buy a tree in the wind and rain...



getting it set up...

no doubt in henry's mind, the train is first things first... 



and in the middle of decorations, some perler beads...


 a mostly decorated, charlie brownish christmas tree...


with some window lighting to go along...

No, not a Charlie Brown tree. Not even close. Just very beautiful and also very European: they somehow don't fill them out as much as we do in America. Which has me wondering -- what do we feed our trees anyway??

They are just much sparser here aren't they? This is a "Nordmann fir" -- apparently named after a Finnish botanist who found the tree in the Caucasus in 1836... well... at least according to Google.

Nordmanngran has taken over from the traditional rødgran (Norway Spruse) in Denmark.
Denmark is one of the largest producers of christmas trees in europe, 9 million trees exported ,50% of those to the inventer of the christmas tree ,Germany..:D

Tak Rachel og Birgitte. Erik-- I never would have thought Denmark produced a lot of Christmas trees... I figured they all came from Sweden. Oops!
