Oh Christmas Tree...decorating the tree is one of the kid's favorite parts of Christmas...ok mine too! They love to get out all the ornaments that they have made and have been given over the years. Fun stories are always to follow each one. This year was a little extra special since we got a real tree. Something that I always made mom and dad get every year growing up. Syd and Xav were excited to drive home with it! They thought we needed it to touch the ceiling which wouldn't be a problem if our ceiling wasn't 30 feet tall:) We enjoyed watching Christmas Vacation and listening to Christmas tunes for the first time this year. The smell of fresh pine fills the air.
