We put off getting a Christmas Tree for a while because we didn't want to spend $75.00-$100.00 on a cruddy tree. So, Sunday morning, while I was sleeping in, Heidi cut the tree down in the front yard. We wanted to get rid of it anyway, but now we have a good use for it. So it is now our tree! :-) As you can see, there isn't much room at the top; I actually had to cut a few more inches off so we could stand it up.
It has been getting a little disappointing to see how much of American social life revolves around spending money. We are having to make the tough decision of spending money on eating out or possibly isolating ourselves from friends. So that is a little harder than I thought. :-/
We are anticipating a great Christmas at our home. It will be a wonderful time to relax and bring in the new year.
