Its been several years since we've had a tree or even really decorated for Christmas. Buying a tree is still a luxury even now and since it was just the two of us and we didn't have company over, it just took a backseat to the busyness of everyday life. Even though I said we wouldn't do one this year either since Salem is too little to remember it, for some reason today I changed my mind. So off we went to pick a tree tonight after dinner. Salem had fun running around the trees and waving at the employees. She was fast asleep when we got home but quickly realized we were up and she wanted in on the action. So she helped decorate too. With the Christmas music playing we had a lovely time together and now I remember the reason for decorating!
