It's a Christmas tree

Living in Utah is a learning experience for this Island girl.  At home you buy a Christmas tree and they trim the trunk so that it's fresh and then they tie it to the roof of your car (for free) with twine.  Here in Utah they look at you weird when you ask how tall they are, laugh when you ask if they have twine and just stand there when your shoving it into your little car.
  Anyways, the boys had fun sharing the car with our 6.5 foot perfect Christmas tree.  The tree was covered in snow and left beautiful pine needles and the Christmas aroma in the car.  Now the tree is sitting in the corner of our living room with a lifetime of ornaments to remind us why we do all this crazy stuff.  It was fun watching the boys and 2 neighborhood kids put up the ornaments and telling them the stories of how they came to us.  I still have ornaments from my grandmother and her mother; ornaments that I remember placing on my tree in my parents living room.  I can't wait to continue to expand our collection and then share with my kids.
