Sunday Sam and I bought a Christmas tree and spent the afternoon decorating with REAL glass ornaments (which I dropped and shattered) and Claus family cutouts, courtesy of Ikea.
Afterwards, we drank tea, ate stroopwaffels (an absolute favorite Dutch dessert for anytime of year) and FaceTimed my family in SLC.
Update: There has been some concern that our tree is not being watered. Well the tree man said it should last until the New Year with some needle drop without water. Is he a liar? I looked for a tree stand with water and can’t find one! Solutions??
