We had this evergreen tree in our backyard that needed to be cut down. It was transported from the forest and planted in our yard and it grew quickly and was choking out our cherry tree. A light bulb came on when we saw it after we bought the house. "Its our Christmas tree!" Like this moment on Christmas Vacation:
Casey was out at 9 in the morning with his chainsaw...
It looks the perfect size doesn't it?
Perfect size until we got it in the house and it was 11ft tall, huge and not really looking like the tree I dreamed of. I was waiting for the squirrel to jump out of it at any moment...
11 strands of lights and two blown fuses later, we have our Christmas tree!
The tree now takes up the entire back part of or house, its awkward and hilarious, filled with old, hand me down ornaments.
And we love it.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
