The place looks festive!

Finally decided to get a tree this year. Okay, so its a fake 2 foot one that I bought at Michael's last week, but it's close to the trees of my childhood - other than it's fakeness, this tree is covered in me-as-a-kid.

Several years ago my mom sent me all of the family ornaments - the ones I made in kindergarten, the baby's first ones with my name, and the other ones I remember putting up year after year. Each December I've looked at the guiltily, meaning to put them up somewhere but never really getting around to it.

This year two things sent me over the edge -

The Tree Itself - it was cheap, it was there, and it's small enough to store away innocuously the rest of the year.

presents! presents! presents!

The Presents - I'd been piling up the presents in the living room because that's where I was wrapping them. One morning I realized that they'd ended up in a little mound in front of the tv. That just seemed both eerily reflective of Christmas' current role in our culture and too depressing for words.

So its all decorated here. The spirit has definitely hit!
