Our First Christmas Tree

On Black Friday weekend, we bought our first Christmas tree!  We opted for an artificial tree to save money, the environment, and our hardwood floor.  :)

At first, I felt guilty about this.  To buy an artificial tree would mean that I would be the first generation in my family that didn't begin her family's first Christmas with a real tree.

But then I remembered that I love fake food and have fake flowers all over our house.  So it's not hard to welcome a fake tree in our lives!

All trees were 20% off at the Home Depot on Black Friday weekend, and Michael's military ID card got us another 10% off.  Score!

This past weekend, we listened to Christmas music as we decorated it.  Macy seemed to enjoy watching us.  So much fun!
