we went this afternoon to pick out a tree with mom and dad. we usually go with them to help pick out their tree, but this is the first year that we got our own tree at the same time. i think we found the best one ever - and it smells just as wonderful as it looks!i'm looking forward to having some time off to be home and enjoy every bit of the holidays. there are so many wonderful things to look forward to. i can hardly wait!
