Last year we made the switch to an artificial tree. While we miss the smell of the real tree from time to time, there are a few perks including not having needles all over the place and that we can put up our tree earlier in the year. So, while some people (who apparently don’t have internet access???) were out shopping on Black Friday, we put up our Christmas tree. We actually didn’t decorate it until Saturday (turkey day leftovers got in the way). Annie and I (& Lucy) were soooooooo excited! Is it Christmas yet???
