When we moved from out west we sold our house furnished. We ended up leaving a few other things to that we didn’t have room for in the truck. One of which was the Christmas tree. We’ve been treeless for the past four Christmases. I prefer artificial trees over live trees simply because it seems wasteful to grow a tree for so long just to cut it down and throw it out after just a couple of weeks. I’ve been eyeing a pretty white tree for the past three years, but we keep putting it off thinking we’d rather wait until we move so we don’t have to store it.
This year Ezra is really excited about Christmas. He keeps talking about the “trees with stars” (aka tree lights). Since we’re still not ready to buy our ‘fake’ tree, we’re planning to head out to the Okatie Tree Farm this weekend to get a real one. This should be fun!
