Husband and I saw this tree in the store over the weekend.
And after I finished laughing, I thought, why not? We wouldn’t have to worry about lights that always take twenty minutes to untangle. Or the ornaments that always seem to be missing their little ornament hangers. And lest I forget, the tinsel, which sheds worse than my dog.
Unfortunately, Bubbles immediately protested. She wanted to put up our regular tree. And the lights. And the ornaments. And the tinsel.
So I reluctantly re-shelved the box containing the lovely blow up tree while promising Husband, “next year”.
Next year, we’re moving down south. Next year, our girls graduate high school and will be moving on to their adult life . . . we assume 😉 . Next year, and probably most years after, we’ll be traveling north for the holidays to visit with family. So, next year, we can be a little un-traditional with our holiday decorations.
And since I’m not sure if the above little gem will be available next year, I decided to do a bit of pre-scouting for other ideas and found these posts filled with totally awesome trees. Hehehe. I can’t wait!
How do you decorate for the holidays? Are you a traditionalist? Do walk on the wild side during the season?
