Okay, so this is last years tree. A Charlie Brown type Christmas tree. Its the price you pay for waiting until like the 12th or 15th to buy a tree. Last year we had a two year old in the house, so I didn't put many ornaments on the tree. This year, I have a three year old, and will have NO ornaments on the tree. This year's tree has a ton of paper chains made by the kids, a ton of lights and some red velvet bows. That's it. I'm too worried about my much beloved ornaments being destroyed. This year's tree also looks like a Charlie Brown tree. Part of the problem is waiting so long to buy the tree, but the other part of the problem is the 14 foot ceilings (last years tree is on the short side of the room, so it isn't noticeable as much). A 6 foot tree is just dwarfed by the size of the room. The guy at the garden center told me the BIG trees always get sold out BEFORE Thanksgiving. I'm sorry, but if I put a live tree up that soon, its going to be dead long before Christmas. I'm seriously starting to think that maybe I need to get a fake tree (perish the thought).
