Childhood Memory

Some people may think this is really weird... but to me it's one of my fondest memories of Christmas time!! Not as fond as Santa... but fond. :)

Our family has always gotten a live, fraser fir tree for our house. They smell lovely. I think we usually made a family thing out of going to get the tree... but that's not the part I really remember.. haha! 

After we got the tree home, it stayed outside for a few days. I don't know why I will always remember this, but our tree would sit outside in a horse bucket and soak up water for a few days. Now that I type this... it sounds really crazy.

I got home from school the other day and mom had mentioned that she got the tree! I said Oh where is it!? She said it's in the garage! and I walked out to see it and this is what I saw...

I don't know why... but I like it!

We've always had a real tree also. I love the outdoor smell the house has when we bring it inside.
