Well I finally pulled Christmas from the attic last night. I really should put the tree up today, as well as the decorations. I DID try to put lights up on my balcony, but the outlet out there is not working. I didn't think to check - maybe there's a reset button on it....

Haha there WILL be lights this year

I'm torn on real vs fake. There are so many pros to artificial, but nothing beats the experience of taking the kids out to find and chop a tree - and nothing can duplicate the scent of a real tree. Mmmmm. . . we've tried the rooted ones in the past, but I think it's just too cold for them to go into the ground directly from a warm house - we've never had luck keeping them alive. :/

We haven't had a moment to get our tree up yet this year, we like to do it right after Thanksgiving - the DAY after, preferably! But it's been so hectic the last few weeks. . . soon!!!

Can't wait to see more pics! The ones up so far are beautiful! ^__^

My tree isn't going up this year. Nor are decorations. Lights are enough this year.

We have a tiny tree my brother and sister in law gave us. It's on a plant stand and presents are underneath it.
