We tried something new this year... a real tree! I know that for many of you this is no big deal, but for my OCD self, it is. I love fake trees (call me vain) because you can make them look absolutely perfect. However, my children expressed the desire to go up in the mountains and bring home a real tree. I am nothing, if not supportive of my children (see, I can set my vanity aside) and so we did as they requested. I am using the term "we" lightly, in reality it was Jason, Carter and Caitlin that did all the work and brought home the tree.
And now for the Tree Trimming.... complete with Christmas music courtesy of Josh Grobin, kettle corn, and sinfully good almonds toasted with sugar and cinnamon.
Don't you just LOVE Christmas?
