christmas tree!

I think we are on the mend. Still all have runny noses and coughs but definitely not as bad as before. Kevin is a couple days behind us in this bug.

We got a Christmas tree today. We got one a fake one at Tesco last year, only to bring it home to discover that they gave us the incorrect parts. We took it back and decided to get a real one. Although it was my first real tree and a pleasant experience, they just don't last as long and are much more work. Plus, you have to keep paying for them every year and then have to somehow get rid of it. Easier said than done when you live in a country where you don't speak the language or understand all of the rules. Someone eventually just took ours last year. So, we decided to try Tesco one more time for a fake tree.

The choices they had were pretty limited, but they were all on sale. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised by how nice the tree looks. Now I just need to find a skirt or some fabric to throw around the bottom. Wish I had all of my old ornaments from growing up to put on the tree. Oh well. I am liking this tree this year!

And now we will wait and see what Seth thinks of it tomorrow morning when he wakes up. I have a feeling I just made my life a whole lot more complicated as I will now have to keep him out of it!
