betsy, connie and i made some ornaments (thanks for the inspiration echo) last week and decorated our tree. connie couldn't get to all of her decorations this year, all our stuff was blocking it, so we made our own.
funny story- when luke and i were in out first apartment and first christmas in virgina we found this tree next to the dumpster, one of our crazy neighbors had gotten rid of it. naturally when you see a $150 fake tree going to waste you gotta save it right? so we took it home and put it up. the next day our crazy neighbor, we can call her tina, came by our apartment and looked in and saw the tree and went nuts saying what a nice tree it was and how she just got rid of her old tree to get a pre-lit one, and on and on. turns out it was her old tree. it doesn't smell as good as a real one, but it's working just fine right now.i can't believe christmas is less than a week away. i am not ready. not at all.
