I love our queer Christmas tree.
It's unique and represents our busy family.
Now, see...our tree from last year is broken.
The top section didn't fit into the bottom pole tightly.
So it tipped.
This year we borrowed our friend's tree.
Except it is too tall for our house.
So, the pole is bent and jammed up into our ceiling.
I started to put the lights on
And then I got tired.
I put some more lights on, but the cats chewed them
And they went out.
So, the bottom half is lit, the lights in the middle don't work
And there are no lights on the top.
The cats have ruined the bottom row of branches.
Totally chewed them up and bent them all to the floor.
Leslee made it in Girl Scouts.
It's huge and gaudy.
I love it.
That's our tree.
Take it or leave it.
I was going to finish it up the other day.
But as I sat on the couch and looked at it...
It just made me laugh and brought me joy.
And isn't that what a tree is supposed to do?
If you come to visit for the holidays...
Don't make fun of it...
Just enjoy it!
