So here is what it looked like:
Working train around the tree and everything!!! WOO HOO!
Also, notice to the left there is a neat little picture book of the story of Christmas and milk and cookies for Santa...does that kick ass or what?
Too bad only my mom showed up for Christmas and the rest of my family didn't. Such is life with my family...not having them for Christmas still beat the explosive diarrhea I had at Thanksgiving.
Thanks to everyone who gave advice on what to do for my first Christmas Tree in 11 years.
