"It's a tight squeeze in here and that ladder is not gonna cut it..."

When it comes to Joanna Gaines' love for Christmas, the former Fixer Upper star isn't shy. In a recent video, the mama-to-five took fans behind-the-scenes of the holiday 2018 installation at Magnolia Market and Gaines clearly spends plenty of time daydreaming about Christmastime. (In fact, hubby Chip even called her out for cranking up the Christmas tunes as early as Halloween.)

But when Gaines isn't busy planning Christmas at the Silos or turning their Waco shop into a winter wonderland, she's busy getting her own home ready for the holidays. In a new Instagram post shared on November 18th, Gaines gave us our first peek at the family's personal Christmas tree — and boy is it a stunner. "It's a tight squeeze in here and that ladder is not gonna cut it but here we gooooo," Gaines writes of their 13-foot evergreen shrub.

So far, the tree is free of decorations, but we can only imagine how Jo will transform the tree into something remarkable (and how we hope she shares pictures).
