Just bought a tree today to replace the one that finally fell apart after 15 Christmases! I love real trees, but they're not good for my cat. I've started working on Christmas lists- I know what to buy for some people, plus I'm cross stitching some special items and cards. I love this time of the year! One thing I don't like- Christmas ads on T.V. already. I just saw the Pampers "Silent Night" ad. It's only Nov. 4!!!
