I showed you the rest of our decorations last week but also wanted to show you our tree.
This was the first year that we didn’t get a real one, and I have to admit that there’s something to be said for a pre-lit, put-up-in-ten-minutes tree. (This was the one we got from The Home Depot last year.)
I’ve always thought a real tree messed with our allergies, but never wanted to give up the smell. So, I used these Scentsicles this year instead. They’re just little pine-scented sticks that you can hang right on the tree.
I started out decorating with all green, white and gold ornaments, and then let the kids come in and hang the ones they’ve made.
One of my favorites continues to be this ornament the kids made with their babysitter a couple of years ago where they all guessed the sex of the twins the Christmas before they were born.
