Enjoying Our Warm Evenings

Gladly answering a few questions:

Yes, this is our Christmas tree...
Yes, it is March 25th according to my calendar...
Yes, it is a real tree....
Yes, we put it out on our deck in January...
Yes, we did cut it down in November...
Yes, it is still alive...
Yes, I do know the kind of tree it is...it is called a concolor fir...


No, it isn't dropping any needles yet...
Yes, I do think it is rather a miracle of sorts...
We are hoping that it will still be standing when our Ethiopian daughter
comes home in a few weeks from Ethiopia!

Wouldn't that be cool? 

Praying that no birds try to nest in it before then!

don't forget to put your name down for my giveaway...time is running out!

I actually thought you did it to feed the birds. My MIL used to put peanut butter and seeds on pine cones and hang other things from her trees intentionally to feed the birds. I love the little white lights all year 'round.

I love that you are still enjoying your tree, Kimmie! Our tree was still in such wonderful condition when we took it out of the house in January...the branches were bendable and the needles still supple. I think it was because it was fresh cut and tended with care. Now I wish I would have been brave like you and kept it a bit longer! Your sweet new daughter will love it!

Blessings,

That is soooo pretty Kimmie! We have our Christmas tree too but it's laying on it's side in the backyard waiting to be cut up.

Love the photo!
Hugs,

Hi Kimmie, I like your idea of keeping the Christmas Tree going as I always think its a shame that we cut them down just for a few weeks and then throw them away. Bob

We have artifical but the one year we had a real tree we bought one in a pot, decorated it, then took it outside and planted it. That way I could feel good about a real tree.

Wow. Just, Wow!!

Wow - that is amazing it's still alive. Once we had a real christmas tree, but it didn't even last the weeks until Christmas (probably has a lot to do with it being summer here).
What a pretty decoration no matter what time of the year!

In Australia we often have parties called "Christmas in July", because July is our winter. We do the whole hot Christmas meal and sit around open fires - things that can' happen in our hot Decembers. Why don't you do a Christmas in July for Siminesh? So much fun!
