Every year when we pull out our Christmas tree we just have to laugh at it. It is a "special" tree. I don't mean "special" in a good way. I bought our tree 12 years ago at a garage sell for 5 bucks (they just about gave it to me for free). Each year I threaten to throw it out after Christmas and buy a new one for next year. I know that you can get an artificial tree for pretty cheap after Christmas. The only problem is after Christmas we are just plan out of dough. The tree is definitely a kids tree. The ornaments are either homemade or inherited. Let's talk about how I inherited some of them. My parents used to own apartments. One year a tenant moved out and left some things behind. Yep, you guessed it...some Christmas decorations and they are now mine.(ugly Christmas ball ornaments and a few other uglies). My mom gave them to me (thanks mom). So, if the tree gets tipped over or if a ball falls off and gets crushed, I'm not shedding a single tear. I guess when you have little kids, that's the way it should be. It is their tree.
I have such a helpful little daughter. She is constantly rearranging the Christmas tree for me. Here is a picture of her latest creation. Nicely done Haley!
