"The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other."
~Burton Hillis
for day 2 of the advent blog, i've decided to dedicate it to christmas trees. is this really someone's home? i just can't imagine....as of right now, my house sits with toys in the floor, one of waylon's hidden rawhides under part of the couch, a lone sock of drew's at the bottom of the steps, dishes in the sink, the remnants of drew's sweet potato supper on the counter and a few hershey's kisses scattered on the table along with a week's worth of mail. how the heck can i ever have hopes of having such a beautiful tree? it's a good thing i enjoy the chaos (though not the messy house).
now, for today's real advent pictures (which are dedicated to jb, i think he'll enjoy them as much as he did wal-mart bingo):

the beer carton tree

the keg tree

the mountain dew can tree

the mountain dew can tree all done up

now these are what i call real trees. they are such a cultural symbol of where i'm from. i'm so proud they are displayed on the internet for everyone to search, copy and paste. i especially like the keg tree. wonder if they floated them first or if they lugged them up there full?

so, to all you tree lovers, it's too bad we can't do our annual christmas photos in front of one of these dooseys. i only wish i had a picture of my charlie brown tree from last year to add to the mix. i do enjoy a christmas tree very much, no matter what the size, shape, material or theme....love one, love them all.

Hell's to the yea! I had that tree in college but it was Natural Light and not Keystone. You think Ang would let me do that now?
