Our first REAL Christmas tree! We've had an artificial tree the last 4 years. We thought we'd upgrade two years ago. Our tree turned out to be a Charlie Brown tree. Last year, we were at my mom's house. This year we have a REAL tree!
We're learning a lot about having a toddler running around the house. We've learned that you can't decorate the bottom of the tree with anything breakable or special. We've put a couple of foam and fabric ornaments down there. Also, be careful how you teach your toddler about things that are hot. We told Luci that she couldn't touch the Christmas lights on the tree because they're hot. She now likes to blow on them. She also really likes decorating the tree. We found the remote we couldn't find for two days hidden in the branches!
I love having a real tree. I love the smell, the wonky top, and it is so much fuller than our other two trees were. Merry Christmas!
