Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree
Sunday after the in-laws left we decided to put up a Christmas tree. A little early, but it was really fun. We had to try three stores to get the right kind of tree stand and ended up at Wal-Mart which I try my best to avoid. In any case, we made up for it by spending a little extra to buy a tree from the Lion's Club since they donate all proceeds to charity. Plus they let us take all the free extra greenery cuttings we wanted.
You can tell that we really amped up the childhood memories with this tree. Big colored lights, garland, big glass balls. We listened to Christmas carols, drank eggnog and at one point Ron had to run out for more garland. Definitely reminded me of growing up. It's pretty awesome to sit by it at night with all the lights off. Now if we can just make sure the cats don't play with it too much, it should be alright.
