We set up our Christmas tree this evening. This is our first artificial tree in many years (thanks, Lillie!). So, it's a guarantee that I will not be having to return a dry, bare tree and a bag full of needles to Lowe's in a few weeks! The tree looks great in our family room. I'm a bit sentimental, however, so I miss even the hassles of a real, if imperfect, Christmas tree. We had fun placing the ornaments with the kids. This is a tradition that spans generations. More on that later.
