My living room is in a transitional state. Since Phia is old enough to enjoy some of the finer details of the holiday season we decided to (modestly) decorate this year.
While a Douglas Fir would have been nice, we opted for one of its distant relatives of the fiber optic variety. Plug her in and the kids could care less that the house doesn't smell of pine. Thanks to Phia and Ori the tree has been trimmed, and then untrimmed and trimmed again, and so on.
