Earlier I posted the qualm of Real or Fake Tree. The results can be seen here:
Now we have finally put up our tree. Many considerations took place before the final decision. I really wanted a live tree and my fiance wanted a fake one. I love the smell of a live tree and the look of one as well. The cons with a live tree are of course the mess that they make and the yearly cost (if you are buying them). This year we also have a 15 month old running around the house messing with everything in site. We finally agreed upon a fake tree. It was cheaper than the real trees that are being sold locally and we felt that with Lil Man running around it might be safer (lighter and balanced well). It will also save us money in the future and save a tree.
