We've barely gotten into the spirit of things around here, any decorating was done at M's frequent and urgent request. As C and I talked about what our tree would be this year (the white fake tree is looking tired and jaundiced) we decided to top off a cypress in the backyard. The trees were planted when we thought a nice, dense barrier would be appropriate, but then decided they'd steal all the sunlight from the raised bed gardens.
So now we have a scraggily, funny, and altogether perfectly imperfect Christmas tree that may just get us the Griswold Family title we deserve.
