Oh Christmas Tree

Well this may come as a shock to some of you but I wanted everyone to know that for the first time since we have owned a home we actually go our Christmas tree out in time for pick up. Yes folks this means come spring time I am not going to have a dead tree in my garage or on my patio. Don't laugh I am so not kidding...

2003 at our old townhouse we did not get a tree.I told Chris I refuse to get a tree while we still have the previous years tree in the backyard.

The tree stayed on the patio all winter,excuse being it kept getting covered in snow...Emma's First Christmas in 03 we did not get a tree, we already had one. LOL...That spring for Emma's baptism I tossed the tree over the fence to make our backyard look better, hehe one of our neighbors yelled at Scott for this...( Scott my Uncle and Neighbor at the time) Boy was he pissed at us. Eventually that summer we put the house on the market so I walked the tree up to the woods and dumped it. Yes it was that easy, we are slack!!! We moved into a rental for the Christmas of 04 while our current house was being built. We had already sold so we were in between houses...this ment no tree to deal with... Needless to say Christmas tree disposal is a on going joke at my house.

Last year I was so excited our first Christmas in our new home and my first tree in 2 years, I just knew it was going to be great. When the holiday was over we took down the tree and put it outside. Apparently we got our days a bit mixed because when we got home from work the tree was still sitting in the ally by the garage. That tree was in our garage until about a month ago! I told Chris this yr was his last chance get rid of the tree or no more real ones... I have to say I am very impressed Chris must really not want a fake tree. Best part about it I do not have a tree until next year...Oh the little things....

Really we are not totally crazy LOL

HAHA! Funny though, I don't remember seeing a Christmas tree in your garage. Hum? Good for you and good for Chris. All it takes is a little motivation. HA!

Good for you!! What about Christmas lights, though?? Or is that stretching it a bit? :)))

That is the funniest story! I think I am going to leave my lights up until 4th of July.

I am here to testify that every word of that story is true. The reason Aspen did not recognize the tree in the garage is because all the needles and many of the limps fell off and the tree was pretty much a big stick in the corner.

I am so ashamed to admit this: our tree is still up. But it is a fake one, so who cares! When my kids were small we always had a real tree and when it was time to get rid of it we BURNED it. I miss those days.
