    I’m just dying over this tree. Not sure I have ever seen a round Christmas tree before. Will say I really like those chairs though.

    Will hopefully post on Sunday. My family has a great tradition we each have a unique Santa that my parents bought us when we were born, and this year we bought one for my daughter to go on the tree to keep the tradition going.

    I think we have too many ornaments but I can’t complain because she did all the decorating.

    I'm super salty about our tree this year. We have our standard keepsake and decorative ornaments but the winner of the UF fsu football game gets to add team color ornaments . First year of orange and blue and it hurts

    We had a huge Douglas Fir last year because we had like 20-foot ceilings. The citrus scent those things give off is great.

    I told the guy at the Xmas tree farm I wanted the biggest tree they had and he said they have some 15 footers but it takes 8 guys to move a tree that size. Didn’t seem right to me because I moved the 11.5 foot tree by self (admittedly it was very heavy and difficult by myself). He said for every foot over 11 they grow exponentially from a width standpoint which contributes much more to the weight than the height.

    I don’t have 8 friends so I went with the 11.5 footer.

    We specifically designed the semi-circle cove framed by the spiral staircase as a place for the tree. It was a nice halfway point between the front of the house (so it could be seen from the street) and the living room (where we open presents).

    Those with a big house know you can’t have it both ways.

    Here’s a picture from the opposite direction where you can appreciate the dichotomy created by our bridge on the 2nd floor balcony (which leads to the veranda):

    The snowman is definitely indoors. The material is made of a high end sheen covered in micro-glitter. It wouldn’t last a single night in the Texas Hill Country. He’s my kids’ 2nd favorite decoration behind the inflatable Santa on a helicopter outside.
