Still no "after" shot. We went and picked out our Christmas tree last night. Once we got in in the stand and watered, we decided to drink hot chocolate (with marshmallows!) and cuddle on the couch instead of putting on the lights and ornaments. We decided we could wait until tonight to decorate it. It was a good decision; there was a lot less bickering this year (none, in fact!) than last year and peace is what we're going for this season. We're resolved to drink more hot chocolate this month.
UPDATE: We now have an after.
