The end is near! Only a couple of weeks to go and 2014 is over and done with. And that means Christmas is even nearer! Maybe some of you have already put up their Christmas tree, like Chuck has. My in-laws actually have a Christmas tree plantation they run as a little side business, so we always have access to the best Christmas trees. However, this year, we’ll skip the tree altogether, for a variety of logistical reasons. One of which is the fact that the new guy who moved in with us last year would probably tear it down and rip off everything on the lower branches. Now that he can walk, it means constant vigilance for us parents anyway, but we think that the psychological pull of a decorated tree would be just too irresistible and too much for us to handle on top of everything else. Well, next year, I’m sure things will have changed again!
