Oooh Christmas Tree...

Since we are going to visit Tracy in Washington this year for Christmas, we decided not to put up our big Christmas tree. Logically this makes sense, but emotionally it does not. This is the first year Xander is really understanding what Christmas is all about and I love Christmas and always put up a tree. So, instead we put up the 1 foot tall tree that Mom gave me to take to college. I even got some little Dora ornaments for the boys to put on the tree. Even though we have more decorations/area for the small tree than the big tree, it was looking very pathetic because it is so small and it was making me sad. So I put some presents under the tree (really under the table the tree is on because the tree is too small to put presents under). Still pathetic. So, I went to Target and got a string of small colored LED lights and put them on the tree. Now the tree looks COOL. The light are very bright and reflect through the tree and onto the wall behind it. It looks like modern art. I feel better about the tree now.

Your tree really DOES look cool with the lights. Big trees are overrated anyway! ;)
