Our Christmas Tree...or Christmas Shrub




We put our Christmas tree up this week and I have to tell you, I'm not loving it. We got a free tree this year from our realtor, which is great, but I keep calling it the Christmas shrub because it is severely lacking in height and it is rather "round" towards the bottom. I don't really like it to tell you the truth. I love our ornaments and the smell of a fresh tree but, had it not been free, it would not have come home to my living room! Oh well, I'm deciding to be thankful and enjoy it anyway but without that star on the top, I don't think I could have stomached it all season!! Also, I've decided that it needs like double the amount of lights we have on it, but neither one of us feel like tackling that again, so there you have it! The Christmas Shrub is here to stay!

LOVE your Christmas tree! Hope to get up to MN sometime and see it. Maybe next year between TG and Christmas. Mom is doing well, better than I expected. Wed, dad's bd, we planted a tx. olive tree outside her window and put red roses on dad's grave. She's rejoined arts guild and garden club here in Utopia. Love to hear from you guys.
