We've got the Christmas spirit at the Merrill House, or at least I do! The tree is up and I love it. One of Landon's first major trips out last year was to Wal-Mart with me the day after Christmas. It was a quick trip, I knew what I wanted. I bought a skinny, pre-lit tree that was 50% off. I put it up for the first time this Christmas and I love it. Half the battle in the years past was putting all the branches up, stringing the lights, etc., etc. So easy, and so much smaller!
