Thought I'd better show you the finished tree (and snowman advent). I know there are many real v's artificial discussions at this time of year, all I know is-we love our tree! Funnily enough we came across the receipt from when we bought it and were astonished that it was ten years ago this Tree Day! It cost £47.99 reduced from £59.99, bargain!
We have a fab Playmobile Advent calendar too but the boxes for it are too battered to use now. We still put out Santa and his sleigh though!
