Tis the season! I have been so busy lately that I haven’t even had time to blog. It’s been crazy around here! As many of you know I did finish all of my Holiday shopping and even got everything wrapped Thanksgiving weekend. However I hate to admit that today is the 10th of December and I have yet got my Christmas tree and all my Holiday decorations up and out. I had planned on doing it last weekend but as always other things came up.
Last night we did start putting out our festive decorations and garland but that’s as far as we got. I wanted to go get our Christmas tree today but of course it’s RAINING! So, that will be put on hold yet again. I love real trees but since the time is ticking the kids suggested that I pulled out the artificial one last night! To be honest I thought about that myself. However, when it comes to trees I am really picky and even when we did artificial trees I would just buy a new one each year! Let me add these were not those cheap Christmas trees either! So in the long run the real trees actually save us money! Thankfully I have family members that take our 1 season trees off our hands. Lucky for them they never have to buy trees!
So last year I decided to go real and really don’t want to go back to artificial. It’s just something about the real trees that make it seem more like Christmas! I also haven’t decided if I want to change our Christmas color theme this year. Last year we did silver and red and it looked great! Everyone that came over couldn’t say enough about how beautiful the tree was. Now this year I am really thinking about doing burgundy and gold. The only thing that is holding me back is all the money I will have to spend for all new decorations!
So my question for the day is real or fake tree? I also would love to know if you change out your themes and colors out yearly. Please tell me I am not the only one!!
