Nestled into the corner beside the towering shelves of entertainment and ontop of a heavy box of food storage covered in festive wrapping, sits our two foot Christmas tree. It's not large or overbearing because that is the purpose of everything else we own - even our outside lighted reindeer looms over it (this reindeer also decorates our living room). The tree only represents a small portion of our Christmas spirit, but it brightens it with its lighting. This is the second season Zane and I have decorated this edifice with red and gold bulbs, small figurines purchased from a quarter machine, and a Santa tree-topper. To us, this Tanenbaum captures some of the earliest memories together and will forever hold its position as our first Christmas tree.
