I'm not really a Christmas tree person. I like how they smell and look, but the thought of stringing lights and ornaments every year only to take them down in a few weeks has always stressed me out. I will definitely do it when the baby is old enough to appreciate it, but for now, I usually make do with a Christmas end table and a pointsettia.
My mom's friend apparently thought that was pretty pathetic so he made me this Christmas tree out of balloons. I'm pretty impressed.
