Trimming the tree, so to speak

We didn't techincally "trim" it since it's made of plastic and has psychadelic disco lights built in...but we did put our Christmas tree up yesterday. I made some delicious ginger spice cookies (unfortunately I forgot about Andrew's aversion to all things ginger...more for me) and we put up the ornaments while listening to Christmas music. Oh, and since we're not putting lights up outside this year, we had more for inside. All on the mantle, the entertainment center, and on top of the kitchen cabinets. I can't help but get shivers every time we turn the lights off and those little white lights just sparkle like Christmas spirit itself. It makes me feel like a little girl again and I just want to sleep under the tree and pore over the JCPenney toy catalog and make a 10-page wishlist...I just love Christmas.
