My very first Christmas tree was a Charlie Brown tree - but I loved it. Since my mom was coming for Christmas, I knew the tree could only be up for a few weeks because of her allergies. But I wanted a tree! So one Sunday, Kirk and I went tree shopping at Frank's Nursery. We had a great time looking at each and every $10 tree - almost collapsing in fits of giggles because the trees were so funny looking. We chose one that wasn't too bad, and then had even more fun trying to get it in the trunk of the car. We carried it into the apartment building like a battering ram, and when we got it up to the third floor we dropped it because we were laughing so hard. We finally got it set up in the living room and I realized there weren't any ornaments. No big deal - I strung some popcorn, turned on the lights, and enjoyed my Charlie Brown tree.
Today is Terri's special day to share a great pattern with you - remember to hop on over to her blog for a great project!
I haven't even read the newspaper since we started the Cross Country Christmas blog hop - every morning I go straight to my computer to read everyone's stories! I'm really enjoying getting to know the other designers better and it's amazing how many things we have in common! My daughter and I love to do puzzles together like Terri's family - it's hard to walk in our living room because our puzzle table takes up so much space! And our kitty likes to sleep up in the branches of our Christmas tree too.
