We Decorated our Tree!

Yeah, it's a fake tree. You got a problem with that? I don't care. I know we live in the northwest. I've picked enough pine needles out of carpet to last me the rest of my days. Martha Stewart's version of nature fits me juuuust fiiine at this stage of my life.

Don't get me wrong, I prefer the smell and look of a real tree--when I have the time to enjoy getting it, and might actually spend two days in a row with it. But mostly I walk by it on my way to work and my way to bed. $30 at Kmart's post Christmas sale two years ago. You can't beat that. At least I actually put lights on this one. I have a smaller, pre-lit one that I just plug in. I looove that one.

One of my Mom's Christmas traditions is the addition each year of a new "bell" ornament for her tree. I realized a few years back that I have a penchant for snowmen, so we've decided to continue her tradition! Each year we buy a new snowman ornament. Here's this year's addition...I like him because he's so retro-ey.
