I've always had artificial trees for Christmas. Chris has always had real trees. This year, we got a real tree. I was pretty thrilled on many levels.
1. I got to decorate BEFORE Thanksgiving. Crust wasn't too happy about it, but with me being "great with child" and all, well, he really couldn't argue.
2. The little lots with the white hanging lights are the absolute greatest things... make me think of small towns, simple life, and the magic of Christmastime. We bought our tree during daylight because I was anxious, but Crust promised I can go back and walk around when it's night time.
3. I've ALWAYS wanted to have a tree on top of my car to take home. I love it when I see it around town and now look at us! (notice the new baby equipped vehicle too!)
4. We were the very first tree buyers at our lot! I think we're gonna make this a tradition.
