I haven't posted in awhile, mostly due to family reasons. It's been a tough couple of years, but this past Christmas things started to seem a little better.
For Christmas this past year ( 2011) we finally ditched our old artificial Christmas Tree and bought a nice real tree from a local garden center. I was very pleased with this, as I've always preferred real trees.
The presents weren't quite in abundance like they had been in past years, especially for the kids. I'm sure that's something that a lot of families can relate to. There have been a lot of changes for us recently, but we still look forward to the Holidays. They are missing something, though.
I have a feeling 2012 is going to be a better year for us. Happy New Year!
