We put up the Christmas tree today,
and it looks great!
We had to rearrange the living room to make it happen though.
Last year, I put it up front and then never got to enjoy it because I'm never up there.
So, even though it makes the family room look more "cozy",
it all worked out well.
And the kids loved their ornaments that my mom made them
(the Russian dolls & snowmen).
