Today was COLD, we received about 4 inches or so of fresh new powder over night and it didn't really get above 0 degrees at our house today, that's right ZERO, brrrrr. So we decided to cut our tree today and set it up. I wasn't sure I wanted a tree this year, I'm missing my Mom something fierce and wasn't sure I could muster the energy it takes to cut, set up and decorate a tree which I normally enjoy doing. But then I know my Mom would want me to, she'd understand how I feel but she would want me to have a tree and celebrate even just a little for her. So we did.
