the last time i spent christmas with a live tree was in '85. it died. our mother cut us out a new one from green butcher paper and pasted it to the wall. practical -- i like it.
we took family pictures in an effort to send out christmas cards this year, but then i remembered how time consuming and tedious it was for me to send them out the last 2 years.
all those envelopes and addresses. blah.
i create too many obligations and deadlines for myself as it is, so i'm green paper treeing it this year.
a candid. this is how we usually stand around.
(there is a baby girl in there somewhere.)
