We have a 1 1/2 year old DS, and a 3 year old SD. REAL... OR FAKE TREE!?
We have only been married two years, a quarter of it he was deployed (including a xmas) so it's not like we have a ton of ornaments, and we don't really have a whole lot of money to be spending. We live in a smaller apartment, so we have no place to store a fake. One of us does not like the responsibility of the maintenance (the needles, the water, etc), but the other wants the REAL (not from a bottle or can) scent of a tree. There is a large corner of our living room opened up for a tree of any size. I just need some mommy opinions!!!

We have a fake tree. After cleaning up after a 13 month old  DD and 2 month old DS, plus 2 dachshunds who shed their hair everywhere I really don't want to clean up from a tree as well.

 We're gunna go with a fake tree. DS is a lean, mean, crawling machine and is into EVERYTHING.. so is our dog, so I'd rather not deal with the hassle of a real tree.
