The kids and I decorated the tree Tuesday. We had such a great time the kids did such a good job.
We broke down and bought a fake tree this year. We normally go into the bush and cut one down. With B.C. forests being what they are right now, suffering so much loss due to the bugs we did not have the heart to cut down one of the few green trees left.
We bought a beautiful 9 foot pine with lights already on it and I so happy with it. No mess and no need to worry about watering the thing.
