O Tannenbaum!

We are in the midst of another snowstorm! Last night we decorated our Christmas tree. I love the smell of a fresh tree - our whole house smells delicious!

We had to rearrange the furniture a bit to make it fit in the window, so now our living room went from super green to ULTRA extreme green. We have to find a new sofa!

And our nativity, which I love:

Getting the tree was pretty easy this year. Last year we got our tree from Lowe's, which we both thought was lame. This year we went to this little tree lot that had the lights and the carols. We looked at the price tag of the tree - $75. We both are too cheap to pay that much for something that is going to be at the curb in less than a month so guess what...we headed back to Lowe's and got the same tree for $32. So yes, we are lame for a second year in a row. An additional plus for Lowe's is that it is very close to our house and given that we have to drive with the hatchback of our VW Golf open to accomodate the tree, it is better to do that from not too far away. Driving in 6 degree weather can get a little cold!

That is great nativity scene - not too gaudy with the figures. Nice and simple.
