Yesterday, the day after a food- and fun-filled Thanksgiving, we got our fragrant 5' balsam Christmas tree. Later today, it will go to our living room. Tree decorating time! We already moved our sofa and loveseat around to accommodate our tree.
I like having a Christmas tree, but we haven't had a Christmas tree since 2006. In 2007, we were in California for Christmas. In 2008, we went to California, got back before the 25th, but had no time to buy a tree. In 2009, we went to California and the Philippines due to my father-in-law's death.
This year, we're back to having a tree. Happy me!
