The Holiday Tree!

Holidays,for my family (like many), are full of traditions. One tradition, is taking the kids to get a real tree. Most of my friends and family have gone to fake trees with matching decorations. Their trees are perfect and look like they came out of a magazine ad. They are beautiful. However, I am still stuck on having a real tree. I am not sure why I am still stuck on having a real tree. I guess, I like the smell, the freshness of it. I like the imperfections. I have to admit, I can do without the needles but really if you get a fresh tree from a farm you don't get tons of needles dropping. So, after weeks of whining and moaning, I finally made time and took the kids to get a tree. I put the lights on then let the kids decorate. The kids enjoy looking at each ornament, most of which have stories or memories to go with them. They decorate the tree haphazardly. Seeing how many decorations they can hang on one branch. When the decorating is done we stand back while eating left over candy canes and drinking hot chocolate and admire our beautiful tree!
