I have always thought cutting down a Christmas tree sounded like so much fun, so Colin and I decided this year to give it a try. We picked the most gorgeous, warm for the season, Sunday afternoon and headed to a tree farm about 15 minutes from home.
It was another week or so before Colin and I took the time to string the lights and decorate the tree, but it wasn't long until we had transformed our simple tree into a sparkly, shining beauty! As we have for the past several years, we put our tree in the family room, which is in the basement. We spend time watching tv down there, and there is nothing quite like watching a movie to the glow of Christmas lights!
