get the Christmas tree set up

medium_XMasTree.jpgThis is America, and it would be perfectly legal to have a fake plastic pre-decorated Christmas tree sitting in the family room. I don't think I could ever do that though. I'd rather not have a tree at all.

So we drove to Menards and bought a scottish pine, 7 feet tall, with thick branches and long needles. All the ornaments we brought from Germany work just fine on it, except the real wax candles and the red glass top piece.

Now the living room is filled with pine scent. At night we have a fire on in the fireplace and the glowing twinkle of 70 little LED lights on our tree. To make it perfect all we'd need would be some cold and snow outside.
