Oh Christmas Tree

We decorated our tree on the 4th, but as usual, I am a total slacker and didn't get anything up about it.  When I lived at home, and even after both my brother and I had moved out, my mom always wanted to go up to Apple Hill and find our tree and cut it down/decorate it as a family.  This usually required getting up really early on a weekend and sacrificing spending a whole day with the fam.  My brother would make chili and we would decorate the tree in the evening.

Over the years my parents moved closer to Apple Hill, but farther from me and my brother and it became more of a hassle to keep this tradition going with our busy schedules.  Last year JB and I bought a fake tree (I am not a fan of sap, bugs, or fire hazards) and I decided to have everyone over here and make chili and decorate the tree, once again reviving our tradition somewhat.  So they came over again on the 4th and we decorated the tree:

We don't have a tree skirt and it was off-balance so we had to stick some folded cardboard under one of the feet, which is why I cut off the bottom of the pic.  LOL!  This what we call Christmas Corner.  What do you think?

It looks so pretty! We go up to apple hill every year and get our tree, too. I get what you mean about the real trees, but it's a tradition I just can't pass up!
