John and I went back and forth about getting a tree this year and even celebrating Christmas at all. We decided that cutting down a tree would not be the best idea since we are going to be gone for so long. It broke my heart a bit to not have a tree.
So I did the next best thing, I bought a teeny tiny christmas tree. It's a far cry from my normal 9 foot tree but I guess it will have to do for this year. (Also, a lot less of a fire danger)
As you can tell, Miley is also a little sad about it.
On and happier note, we are leaving for our trip in 5 days! It can not come soon enough. We have been having such cold, windy, snowy, icy weather here in Portland. It is about 20 degrees right now with a wind chill into the single digits. Costa Rica is ranging from 80-90 degrees.
I will be updating the blog about our trip often so stay tuned.
