This is the first year that we’ve done our own Christmas tree. In the past, we were always travelling to see family over Christmas, but this year we’re staying put, so we got our own tree.
We went out on Sunday to a tree cutting place but we didn’t have the heart to cut a living tree so we ended up buying one pre-cut. Except for the one that our friends cut down, which was lovely, all of the pre-cut trees were nicer anyhow.
So far we’ve been lucky – the dogs have hardly noticed the tree. That might change once we get some gifts spread around the bottom, though.
