Trees were always in such abundance in Portland and definitely something I took for granted. While they do have some great trees here in Maryland I didn't want to drive far, and I definitely did not want to pay too much money for a tree that we would only be home to enjoy for 1/2 the season. Luckily, one evening on our weekly Home Depot run (we love that place and their 10% off military discount) and we spotted their $15 mini trees. It was perfect!!! We bought it, and decorated it all in the same night.
Dominik loved putting the decorations on, taking them off, and them putting them back on. It was an all night affair :) After the Christmas tree was up we put a few more decorations up and called it good. We are excited for Christmas in Portland, but are glad that we decided to be festive and decorate our house here. Tis the season after all!!!
