we chopped down our yule tree on sunday. we found a perfect tree to fill our living room with its character. there was a lovely dusting of snow. tristan doesn't seem to remember the huge storms of last year, and was really fascinated by the icy white powder. tashi showed him how to make a snow ball, and i coached him on how to throw it at dad. fun was had by all. and now, indeed, we have a thristy, happy, green tree in our living room.
