We've been buying our Christmas trees from the same tree farm for about 20 years. When the kids were little, we would go out to the farm and cut down our own tree, but now we just go to the lot they set up in town. The novelty of freezing our tootsies off so cut our own Christmas tree has worn off. We went over to the lot and bought our tree yesterday evening, and then we let it set in the house overnight to warm up. Sitting on the sofa last night, I could feel the cold coming off the tree... yay for the wood stove. We always get a Frasier Fir because the needles last longer than a spruce, and it's such a beautiful tree... I prefer the short needles for our Christmas tree. It's warm now and makes the house smell so good.
The kids and I sorted through all the boxes of Christmas decorations in the basement and brought them upstairs. Kev put the lights on, and the garland, with Sammy's help, this afternoon. We just finished decorating it this evening.
