Bah humbug. Or not.

I told Doug I was not about to put a Christmas tree up in the midst of our renovation, what with the furniture all shoved together, torn back carpeting and dust everywhere. It would only add to the chaos.

My grinch-like stance lasted about a day until I broke down and sent the boys out to bring home a fresh pine, so I could put on carols and decorate. It's just not the holidays unless you have the soft glow of a tree...
