This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Our first year with a Pretend tree

I'm trying to remember why Troy and I went with a fake tree this year. Neither one of us had ever had a fake tree growing up, or as a couple. I think we talked about the mess and price and decided if a good deal comes along........ Well, Lowes had a great sale on Black Friday weekend, so we have a pretend tree as Livia likes to call it. (Get it, not real, but pretend, ha ha)

It was nice, they all were excited and helpful.

It was George's turn to place the Angel on the tree.

We had to put our tree in the Porch (in-closed, but not insulated!) to keep it safe from a certain someone.....

Because she is THAT fast!




  2. Like lightning! haha! We have a pretend tree too. Got it 11 years ago for $70 on sale, do the math, that's at least $250 saved, that's why we did it. And the stupid cats like to eat the real ones & then start hallucinating & vomiting everywhere bc its poisonous to them (although Rob hates cats). I miss that pine tree smell though. Good idea about putting it in the enclosed porch.

  3. Happy new year2010.
