After much deliberation and whining (on my part) we finally got our Christmas Tree. To me it’s not Christmas without a tree. The smell of pine filling the house, the lights, the presents under the tree… LOVE IT!! DH on the other hand always complains of the hassle. He wanted to get a fake tree and add pine tree car air fresheners for the smell. But O and I won!! We got our Christmas.
Our fear for the Christmas tree was also that O would start grabbing the glass ornaments and start pulling on the branches. But to our slight relief or disappointment, she has not done any of these. First off she was not touching the tree. I guess maybe it was too prickly. And she was not even paying attention to it. She does try to grab the ornaments, but we keep telling her to be nice. And just touch gently. So far so good.
OH yeah, then our front tiny tree, we added solar power lights. Tonight when I came home and saw them, they were so sad. Not to mention the neighbor (the one DH is at war with) went all out with lights. A bit too much for the shoebox area we all have in the front. It’s like a freaking sun out there. But in an effort to say our pathetic little tree, we have to go out and buy a few more light strands.
