Finally. I have Christmas decor up & a beautiful natural looking tree in a tree stand. We'll decorate it tonight. :) I'm a real tree person, but Geoff grew up with fake ones, so I'm the "expert" in how to pick them out. We chose our tree in record time this year. Usually we go to 2 different lots, but this year, I think we had our tree picked out, bundled up, & paid for in less than 7 minutes! We headed to Home Depot after chuch yesterday afternoon - they have the cheapest trees in the area - $25 or so. The choices were really slim; we think that everyone else showed up the day before. We saw one we liked, said we would come back to it, looked at the rest of the 15 trees left, went back to our first choice (of course), and off we went! Now, our entire apartment is filled the scent of fresh pine. Yum!
Pics will come soon. Geoff has been hogging the computer at home. Something to do with 5 or 6 papers due Friday or something like that. :) We'll be speedy decorators tonight so he can get back to writing & research!
