You'd think Kate would have been scarred by this tree farm experience, but she is a firm believer in a REAL tree still; we all are.
Confession. I did buy an artificial tree to put up this year. With a baby due Christmas Eve, Kate and her family won't be here and we'll celebrate the holiday at their house when Worth's bunch comes up to meet Banks. Also, I don't want E.W. to have to put away the ornaments; I have a system! Next year, when we're back in REAL tree mode, it can go in the dining room and play a supporting role in the festivities.
