Daily December- Dec. 7

One of my favorite traditions of the holiday season is to make the trek to Newby's Farm to cut down our family Christmas tree. We've been doing it for years. Until this year. This year Bennet and I drove less than one mile from our house to the corner lot and picked out a pre-cut tree.

This year I'm determined to keep the stress level low. I'm cutting myself some slack. There are only so many hours in the day. Only so many weekends in December. We can't do it all. We both work full time and have three young kids. While the kids would have enjoyed the cut-your-own variety they are equally happy with the fact that they have a 'big' tree all a glitter in the living room.

It is the smallest tree we've ever had but I'm ok with that too. I'm just going with the flow this year and loving it! We finished decorating the tree tonight while we listened to Christmas music.

I totally feel you on keeping the stress level low this holiday. My husband and I were going to get a tree over the weekend but we decided not to. We wouldn't have much time to decorate it and then we'd really only have one weekend to enjoy it before going off on vacation. It just didn't seem worth the time and money. And we're okay with that!
