For the past several years, we have gotten our Christmas tree from Cirian's Farmers Market in Midtown Omaha. 

It does not show in dog and cat vision, but the tree Abby was looking at was flocked a beautiful bright green.

"Why do you flock trees green?" I asked the person helping with our tree.

"Because we can. Why do they dye their hair purple?" he replied.

:)

Abby noticed a tree was flocked black with sparkles. So this year for the first time, our tree is not only flocked purple, it also has sparkles. What's the downside?

The tree is BEAUTIFUL! So is our floor. In EVERY room. And both dogs. Again, no downside!

 Russ and Joy prepare to decorate.

 My favorite picture - Amanda lifting Abby up to put Grandma Amanda's angel on the top of the tree!

 This tree skirt is missing hand prints from the years we have had pets who would have peed on it. We are missing quite a few years. Still cute though. And pee-free!
