Christmas Tree Carnage

Sometimes you have to face facts. Sometimes your fake Christmas tree is just dead. You should not try to resuscitate it. You should not try to meld the stand back together with Super Glue. You may end up gluing your fingers to the tree and then to each other while the tree lies lifelessly in a pool of its own ornaments on the baby’s tummy-time blanket.

A $20 fake Christmas tree from Rite-Aid does not owe you anything. After 5 years of service, sometimes it’s best just to say, “Thanks. It’s been a good ride. Ho Ho Ho Croak.”

    All I can really say there is how beautiful she is!

    Sorry about the tree. Glad it didn’t squish the most squishable of babies. I can see why the tree would want to get closer to that little bundle of sweetness. I do too.

    I think mine croaked too but I’m going to wait until after Christmas to buy a new one for next year. For now we will just focus on the bottom half of the tree.

    Oh, I just want to pick her up and SQUISH her! Oh my she is CUTE!
    Oh and that is what is wrong with my tree:-) It’s been alive since Maria went to college, which is 17 years ago!

    Our $20 Rite Aid tree only lasted about two years, so five is pretty good!
