the tree


W
e tend to get a little creative in our Christmas trees each and every year whether its making tons of clay ornmaments or millions of paper snowflakes we try and do something different every year. This year we made our tree. "What" you must be saying "how can you make a tree?" "Its easy" I would say. My son and I went on a mission one afternoon and our goal was to pass by as many christmas tree vendors that we needed to in order to procure enough left over branches that they discard so that we would have the parts for our tree. Two vendors later we had a big bag of fresh pine branches.



A little wire and some old tree branches from the lots nearby and our bag of pine boughs resulted in our beautiful tree. Charlie Brown has got nothing on us!



Memories are what you make of them and good memories take a little extra effort. Merry Christmas everyone!



EDIT: I set my camera up with a motion sensor and this is what I got!
