I can’t believe Christmas is almost here already! This year flew by…
My kids started a tradition in our house of selecting a tree that might otherwise be homeless at Christmas. You’ve seen them at the Christmas tree farm with lopsided limbs, black spots in the middle, too thin, too thick. We imagine these poor little trees are often picked on and laughed at by the other perfectly manicured Christmas trees, and they worry they might never get to be a Christmas tree.
So we venture out to the tree farm and search out the homeliest of the trees and bring it home. You should see the way they look when we carry them to the truck. If a tree could smile, these trees are beaming! LOL
Here are some of our trees from Christmases Past… http://lisakessler.wordpress.com/2011/12/13/do-you-name-your-christmas-tree-more-author-bloghop-fun/
And now I’m proud to introduce this year’s tree… Skoodge! 🙂
He’s wider than he is tall, but that little tree looked SO happy leaving the tree farm! LOL
We had to give him a little boost up on a table at home, but please don’t tell him.
He thinks he’s a tall, majestic Christmas tree! Our angel was too big for him, so Panda added a Derby Hat… He looks pretty dapper, right? 🙂
In other news… I’m super excited that Night Thief has been nominated for Best Novella of 2012 over on Grave Tells Book Reviews!!! Please take a second and vote… It’s super quick and easy! 🙂
