  • Fresh cut or ready to plant for Christmas

    Just for the record I am not one of those people who puts up their tree just after Thanksgiving; I need more time to absorb the effects of every holiday.
    But there are many who are ready to pick out the perfect Christmas tree.
    I have a certain set of parameters for our tree; it needs to be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more.  
    However, once the mundane is done then the fun begins.  
    Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me.
