This is pitiful, and not worthy of the title Christmas Tree, MOO!

One month until Christmas. Are you ready? Know what your going to cook? Know where your going to go? Have you bought all your gifts or are you waiting until the last week or even the last day?

Deciding on the tree is a big one. We have only had a mini table top tree for the last several years, after my parents decided to give away our standard size tree. I have no idea why, because at that point my sister and I were still coming home every year. We were the ones to decorate the tree and pack it away before we left again. We never did get a good explanation for that one.

So this year it's between an 6 ft artificial tree that looks as real as possible or a real pine (not sure what kind) tree. Although I think it's going to be artificial because pine trees are poisonous to cats and I can't guard the tree from being attacked by Kai day and night. I'm still checking out of the stores to see who has the best variety and of course the best price. I'll update with a picture when the decision has been made.

How's your shopping, getting ready for Christmas or are you not bothering will the whole celebration?
