Yes, it's real, and it's SPECTACULAR! ;) *wink, wink if you know what that is referring to.
I took a picture of our tree in all its glory. Last night I added one more strand of lights so I was able to move the other ones a little bit closer, but I didn't take a new pic. Oh well. It's our first Christmas tree! Andrew is at the age now where he is excited about Christmas lights, Frosty the Snowman, and snow.
Speaking of snow, we are currently in a blizzard warning. Twelve to Fifteen inches of the white stuff is possible. The worst is supposed to come tonight and tomorrow, and then it is going to be really cold with blowing snow causing whiteouts. I love snow, but I will be taking it easy on my way into work tomorrow.
