Terrible Tree Tragedy

My New Year's Resolution for 2008 is never to buy a Christmas tree for 15 dollars again!!! Our tree was a different kind than we usually buy and was so prickly it almost hurt to decorate. THEN it stopped drinking water and dried out. THEN when we tried to take it outside it decided to drop needles all over our living room floor. So I have almost broken two vacuum cleaners trying to clean the mess. Today I spent a LONG time on my hands and knees with a shop vac and a one inch hose trying to get the needles out. There are STILL some left. Am I happy? No.

That's awful!
Eoin's outfit is very cute. He looks very grown up in it.

Wow! Looks like a cat exploded on your floor! Yes, I resolved to stick to fake trees several years ago for the same reason. Love Eoin's outfit by the way! He gave us a little fashion show in the nursery on Sunday :)

Artificial all the way! They last for years, so they are more cost efficient, and they don't make a mondo mess all over the floor. You can get some really nice ones, especially at the after-Christmas sales!

Eoin would look cute even in a sack.

No more slagging off my artifical tree anymore. Ha Ha
