I caved…


…and finally bought a tree! It’s fake (the only kind of tree I have ever known) and while this picture here makes it look rather pitiful, it has since been decorated with gold lights and a few more ornaments. There may even be a present or two underneath. I can’t believe Christmas is only a week away.

Christmas traditions


Christmas is a sneaky little holiday and I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away. This is a slight problem because I realized I haven’t done anything very festive yet. One thing I do each year though is watch the movie Prancer. With Sam Elliot (aka the voice of “Beef, it’s what’s for dinner”) and a real live Prancer set in the 1980s it’s hard to beat.

No tree here

The first thing one tends to think of when it comes to Christmas decorations is a Christmas tree. While Josh and I agreed last year that we would get a tree this year (after I convinced him that a fake tree was the way to go–real trees can be harmful to dogs, right?). But then we took a trip to the store and realized how expensive fake trees are (yes, we are that cheap)! So we decided to forego one for now. I can’t decide if this was a good decision yet or not.

Do you decorate with a tree, or no?
