Before and after

Remember that nice Xmas tree we had? Ever give your Xmas tree a good shake while taking the decorations off?


BEFORE


...and after we killed it.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

A gallon a day. We had it up for a little over a month.

Re: Before and after

It really only started to get that bad a couple of days ago! Since we got it at the beginning of December, we were religious about watering it...until after Christmas that is!!! I think it held up pretty well.

You should have seen me freaking out when he started purpously striping the branches! I couldn't help but laugh eventually, but the neat freak in me was having a fit at first.

When I lived up there, we always cut our own. Or picked one and the lot guy did it for us.

There are trees down here in parking lots that don't fall apart like that and they are still tied together sitting out in the sun for several weeks.

You must have quite the de-humidifier system in your home.

Yup, Steam heat.
