I have a tree! (Did I say that??) It’ll go up this weekend, so I’ll be decorating. I have my cranberries and dried oranges. Need to pop the popcorn! I make garlands from popcorn, cranberries, and dried oranges. I need more twig stars. Time to bake the gingerbread men! So much to do! So much fun!
This is a store-bought tree, not cut down ourselves. I haven’t been out this week (this tree was brought to me) and I don’t have two big boys here this week to do the work, either. And I think we took the last good Christmas trees off my cousin’s farm in the last few years. It’s bare pickings over there and we don’t have any pines on our farm except one huge one. This isn’t really pine country, so “free” Christmas trees are hard to come by here. I miss cutting down our own tree. (See Two Boys and a Tree for my favorite cutting-down-a-tree story.)
But. I have a tree! I have a tree!
