A bit like Christmas

It's beginning to look more Christmasy around here. Even on this here blog. Got my Christmasy blog banner up, switched the tunes (over on the right...if you wanna listen, just click play) to some more festive ones and our family Christmas tree is up!

We are still working on the outside lights and all and I have to finish just a bit more of the advent calendar I started last year (and finished enough to use thankfully!) and get a few more decorations out and about. Honestly, as much as I LOVE Christmas and all it's fun and festive decor, I still like to keep it pretty simple. Mainly, because I want to enjoy the season, not stress out about my decorations. Also, with a young-ish child, it's good to keep it simple to where he can help out. Cause, this year he is ALL about helping with EVERYTHING. Seriously. I love it though, makes it much more fun. May take more time, but hey, he's only 6 once.

So, how is it going with everyone else and their Christmas decor fun? What is your favorite Christmas decoration or tradition? Also, just for fun, real tree or fake tree?

We have one of each. A little fake one I got for our apartment when we were first married and a real one for our family tree. :)


  1. I am all about the artificial tree...that is what I have and so does my mom. We tried a real tree when I was in middle school, but it was more hassle than it was worth! Making sure it was watered, vacuuming the needles up several times a day...ugh! Plus, I'm all about the pre-lit, collapsing trees!

  2. I loved having a real tree growing up, and now after a decade with a fake tree, I miss the smell of it. Other than that, I love the ease of the fake tree and that we don't have to physically go get it - though sometimes that was a big part of the fun. :)
