cheer in bits and pieces at our place
I have had a real Christmas tree every year since I can remember.
To me, it just isn't Christmas without that overwhelming piney smell filling the house.
But alas, we will be gone for more than 10 days over Christmas and a poor old tree would just die a long death in our house, unused.
The bright side to this sob story is that we will be in Guam for 10 days.
We also found a funny little fake tree my mom had hidden away and were able to get a few decorations up to get us in the spirit.
To be honest, it's kind of nice not to feel obligated to decorate all out.
Bits and pieces are getting us cheery enough.
Monday night after decorating our baby tree we lit it up, turned on Christmas music and ate pumpkin pie on the living room floor.
It felt perfectly Christmasy.
