What you can't see in the picture is how close the top of the tree is to the ceiling. When we saw it on the tree lot I was skeptical that it could actually fit in our house, but after we trimmed it a bit the pointy top no longer bent in contact with the ceiling, and now the star fits much better. I can't believe that Christmas is only a few days away. It feels like it crept up on me this year. Today will be full of baking for me and a few errands to make sure we have everything we need before we settle in. Are you ready for the holiday?
