I have several blog friends who have posted pictures of their Christmas trees so I thought I'd like to do the same thing. Last year I found a seven and a half foot pre-lit tree on clearance for forty bucks! It is gorgeous. It was fast and easy to put up, too! Growing up my family always had a 'real' tree. After Craig and I were married we purchased a fake tree, much to my chagrin. But I quickly fell in love with that tree when I didn't have to water it, vacuum dead needles, and received NO bloody scratches upon taking it down! I'll never go back to the real thing! I have slowly converted a few of my sisters to go the 'fake' route also. I believe they're convinced!
We are planning to bring Fletcher home on Christmas Eve for an overnight stay. We're very excited to have him for a whole night. I can't think of anything I'd love more than to have all three of my children waking up in our home on Christmas morning!
