So it's that time of the year again. The time we wait for impatiently whole year. Our Christmas preparations really start in early November. Lists are being made, checked at least twice. Little hints are dropped in the middle of conversations. Then first week of December it starts for real. On a weekend we all go out and pick a fresh christmas tree. Then take it home, trim it, and usually decorate it the same day. Everyone is involved. Then the rest of the house gets it's share of garlands, lights, and bows. It's festive. But that doesn't even touch on the baking that goes on after the decorations... on that in the next part. Here are a collection of photos from the day the Christmas tree arrived home. Enjoy!
