Once again our family drove out to the Bradbury Christmas Tree Farm (9427 Donna Lane, Mabelvale, AR) and cut down a live tree. Mandy and I really like fresh trees so we haven't fallen prey to the fake tree craze that everyone else seems to buy into.
This year we DID get a wreath, though, and trimmed it to match the tree. We hung our stockings over the fireplace (and the cats' stockings over the litterbox.) We carefully set the cards from friends on the mantel, where they fall down every time we walk past. And now, we're ready for the holidays!
