Every year I put up a Christmas tree in Celebration for Christmas. But this year I put up one and then took it down and decided to get a real tree, not an artificial one. I showed you my tree last week. It was the artificial tree. This one.
Those are just stickers of presents I put on at Photobucket to make it look like it had presents. I have presents wrapped, but they are not under the tree yet. I will put them out closer to Christmas. I put all red ornaments on it. Then the tree started leaning a lot. I think it would not support the decorations. It was leaning to the left and leaning forward like it was going to fall down. So I took all the decorations off and took the tree apart and took it back to Target. The reason I got it at Target is because I had a gift card for $50. How did I get the gift card….well let me tell you. I got an e-mail from this builder that said if I make an appointment to see their houses, they would give me a gift card. I got right on the phone and made the appointment to see the house (the one I had been looking at anyway for a while). I looked at the model house and then got the gift card. They have sent me another e-mail to come look at a house again for a chance to draw another gift card. I did go again, but all I got was a $15 Itunes music gift card. I was hoping for another $50 card to go back to Target and buy me a Kendle book reader.
Anyway, my son wanted a real tree, so we bought a real one and he wanted colored lights and colored ornaments. I took back all the red ornaments and got multi colored ones. So now we have a Christmas tree that smells like a pine forest. My son said it reminds him of camping. We have not had a real tree, it does smell strong of pine.
I just watched a cooking TV show where the guy cooked a turkey and a goose. He even went to see the animals live. The turkey was running around and they were holding it and the goose was big and cute. It was kind of depressing seeing them alive and cute and then he cooked them. I have never ate a goose, but I don’t think I will ever will. I celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking a nice meal, but not Christmas. I think after doing all the cooking in November for Thanksgiving, it makes me not want to stand and do dishes for another holiday. Maybe we could go out to eat, go to a casino buffet and eat. Then I don’t have to cook or do dishes.
