O Christmas Tree

I love decorating the tree and setting up Christmas decorations. This year we were in desperate need of a tree and couldn't seem to find a good deal on an artificial tree, so the three of us went to the Christmas tree lot down the street and picked up a real tree this year. She smells so good! Greg's family pretty much always had a real tree each year growing up, but this was a new experience for me as I have never had a real tree. She's a 6 foot noble fir. Dax was especially excited about setting up the tree when we told him his Daddy has a train that goes around it. Dax is fascinated, thrilled, pretty much obsessed with trains and anything to do with them. He was excited to be able to put the star on top of the tree because that meant we were done decorating the tree and could set up the train track.
It's so fun to have everything set up and ready for Christmas.
