My son, who is 30, purchased a new house this year near Ft. Worth, TX. It’s a beautiful new home in a neighborhood where the kids can run from house to house. They have walking trails and parks. It’s really a dream home for them. It’s nice to see your kids happy.
Tim loves a real Christmas tree. He was heartbroken when Kevin and I decided to forgo the real tree and get a artificial tree. Texas winters are hot and the needles fell too quickly. I spent most mornings cleaning up the needles under the tree and had enough of that. I’m not a slave to a 6 ft. fir!
So, here’s what Tim did this year. He loaded up his oldest, Ryan, and went off to buy a tree. He picked out a 9 ft. beauty and had the farm load it on his car. It was a great plan until he got home. Nine foot tree – 5 year old – 2 year old and pregnant wife. Who would help him unload the tree and set it up in the house? Great plan Tim! Kevin and I just had a quiet laugh to ourselves and enjoyed the beautiful scent it left in his home. The tree is amazing and I hope he is taking care of the tree so our daughter-in-law is not sweeping up needles everyday.
This is for Tim – and anyone else that has a real Christmas Tree.
