Dat 55: Tree Is Up!

We got our Christmas tree today! This is the first real tree I've had since I moved to the U.S. 23 years ago (wow, I can't believe its been that long). When I was little and lived in Poland we always had real trees for Christmas...I didn't even know fake ones existed. Once we came here my parents always put up a fake tree...but I missed the real thing. The smell is amazing and it fills up the whole house! It brings me back to when I was little...that same smell from my childhood...the true smell of Christmas time. I love this tree. Its perfect and we're never going back to the fake one's again! I can't wait to finish decorating it tomorrow.
