We are one of those families that still like the real tree. Sure it is a bit messy, and sure it probably costs more in the long run…but part of the fun of the season for now is going to get the tree. Let’s not forget that great pine smell that fills the house. Until we find out that it is just too much of a pain, or that one of the kids is allergic, real it is.
We went to get the tree this weekend, to the same spot we have gone to for years. Of course I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to snap some shots of the kids while we were there.
With all of those rows and rows of trees, the babies could not resist running around. We finally agreed (meaning: I decided) on a tall, full, but skinnier tree. I just love the way they look all decked out. Do you have a tree preference? Real or fake? Tall and skinny, huge, or pleasantly plump?
