Tree Time

O Christmas Tree!

We went out this morning and chose our Christmas tree. Last year was a bit of a fiasco with a tree that crashed and tumbled over in the middle of the night, soaking our living room carpet with sappy water for four hours before we discovered it.

This year, we went smaller. Odds are pretty good that the only ornaments on the tree will be hand-made and non-breakable. Gifts may not appear under the tree until Christmas Eve. And I can pretty much guarantee that Annie will be dumbfounded when she discovers a real tree INSIDE our house.

Oh, what fun we had traipsing through the tree farm! Can't wait to get it up and put some lights and decorations out. This is going to be a GREAT Christmas with two girls who are still captivated by the magic!
