By now has everyone decked their halls with boughs of holly? I did what I could in our little space (while still trying to keep it puppy-proof), but with Ella being so young and with less than available space, this will be the first year without an official Christmas Tree in my house.... other than a 1.5 foot tree by our TV! So to get my fill, Austin, Ella and I trekked to a nearby Christmas Tree Farm today to meander through and smell some fresh pines, cypress and fir trees. There was quite the crowd out, sawing down their own trees. My family has always used an artificial tree; however, I think when we move into a different home I would like to give a living tree a go! Anyone used both that thinks one is better than the other? For now though, I will enjoy the small pieces we are using to make our house a festive, Christmas-filled home! Have a wonderful first week of December!
