We have both trees up and decorated. We did a flocked real tree upstairs this year. I LOVE it. It reminds me of when I was younger and my dad would go out under the carport and flock the tree himself with the vacuum and bags of flocking. I loved watching him transform the green tree to a white one. I'm pretty sure he didn't enjoy it that much, as I remember hearing a cuss word or two as he did it.
Those of you in my age group can probably remember sticking your fingers in these ornaments. It takes me back so many years....and yes I still poke them when I put them on the tree. Just can't resist!
We have most of our shopping done and our neighbor gifts delivered.....I've never been this ready before so early in the month. My husband has a batch of Chex Mix in the oven, the snow it here......I can relax a little and enjoy the holiday season.
