So we finally got the tree up. This is the third year we have used the fake tree. I was SO against fake trees until I got one. Now, it is pretty nice. There is nothing like a real tree...but, fake trees are pretty convenient~add in a Christmas tree candle from Yankee Candle Co. and we are set! Emma loved watching me decorate the tree. Every round ornament she decided was a ball. So...every time she saw one, which was pretty much every second, she would say "baaalllll" in her loud voice. It was basically ADORABLE!!
