So let’s talk Christmas trees!
Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you that I’m notorious for naming things and giving them a “soul”. I get attached to cars (Right now I drive the Resisty) to computers and yes, to Christmas trees! LOL
The kids & I have always prided ourselves on selecting the ugliest tree at the tree lot and taking it home. We imagine how the hoity-toity perfect pretty trees probably look down on the misshapen trees and taunt them about being the last trees on the lot.
And imagine the ugly tree’s joy as it drives away in the back of the truck, waving goodbye to the pretty trees, excited that it will be decorated and be a real Christmas tree…
Panda, my daughter, names our trees each year, and after Christmas we plant the trees in the back yard. I thought I’d introduce you to some of our Christmases Past…
This is Josiah from last year….
Doesn’t he look happy all decorated??? J Panda had to make him an origami star for the tree topper because his top was so bent… J
And here is Josiah one year later, growing in the backyard with other trees from Christmases past…
He’s still just as crooked as ever! LOL
And here are a few more members of our Christmas family…
ß And this little guy was named “our crack baby tree”. Even after two years, this little guy still thinks he’s a bush and grows sideways instead of up! LOL
ß This is Jethro…
You can see Josiah peeking in the bottom right corner… He’s planted a little ways down the hill…
And now to introduce you to this year’s tree…
We welcome into our family… Yanosh!
He’s not decorated yet, but he’s already excited to be a Christmas tree, don’t you think?
And wait until after Christmas when he can join the small forest out back…
It’s a silly tradition, but as years go by, it’s fun to water the crooked confused trees and see how big they are now, and my kids, who are also big now, remember when they chose little Jethro, and the crazy crack baby bush, *ahem* I mean tree… J
Do you have any silly Christmas traditions that stuck? I’d love to hear them….
