The years that Josh and I have lived in this house have always seen use wandering into the woods in December and finding our christmas tree. The top 10 feet of a 30 foot tree or a small charlie brown tree. Either way each year has had an adventure, a memory and a story.
But oh those little Alaskan trees that come in frozen and dry out so very, very fast.
The pile of needle clean up, this year it was a little overwhelming. I have to admit that for the first time ever I am crying defeat. I can't promise what will happen next year but I am certainly feeling the need for a fake tree coming to our house sooner or later. We can always make memories playing hide and seek in the woods on a different day.
