Oh Christmas Tree…

As you can see, we picked out our Christmas tree tonight. It was such good times. We walked around and around the tree place until we found a Frasier Fir that was just right: skinny but full. This is the first year we actually have furniture upstairs, so we needed a smaller tree, but I didn’t want a Charlie Brown tree…and so we hunted. Cortney put it in the stand when we got home, and – after washing the tree skirt Louis so graciously “marked” – we got her all set up. It was time to untangle the lights and dig out the rest of the decorations.

Our Christmas decorations are now complete! If only our Christmas shopping was!

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.
